"Then Jesus said to his disciples, 'If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.' " ~Matthew 16:24
Note from Juana: Jesus said, "would come," so "if anyone would come" means you don't have to be His follower—but if you are, if we are (I have to live by this, too!)—our trademark must be that we live a lifestyle characterized by denying ourselves.
Walk by Faith,
