January 18 - Luke 9.18-36
Peter's Declaration about Jesus
19"Some say that you are John the Baptist," they answered. "Others say that you are Elijah, while others say that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life."
20"What about you?" he asked them. "Who do you say I am?"
Peter answered, "You are God's Messiah."
Jesus Speaks about His Suffering and Death
23And he said to them all, "If you want to come with me, you must forget yourself, take up your cross every day, and follow me. 24For if you want to save your own life, you will lose it, but if you lose your life for my sake, you will save it. 25Will you gain anything if you win the whole world but are yourself lost or defeated? Of course not! 26If you are ashamed of me and of my teaching, then the Son of Man will be ashamed of you when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. 27I assure you that there are some here who will not die until they have seen the Kingdom of God."
34While he was still speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them with its shadow; and the disciples were afraid as the cloud came over them. 35A voice said from the cloud, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen--listen to him!"
36When the voice stopped, there was Jesus all alone. The disciples kept quiet about all this and told no one at that time anything they had seen.
