Being Made Conformable unto His Death

Luke 14
25    And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
26    If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27    And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
33    So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

2 Corinthians 6
1    We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
2    (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
3    Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:

4    But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

5    In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults,

in labours, in watchings,

in fastings;

6    By pureness,

by knowledge,

by longsuffering,

by kindness,

by the Holy Ghost,

by love unfeigned,

7    By the word of truth,

by the power of God,

by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

8    By honour and dishonour,

by evil report and good report:

as deceivers, and yet true;

9    As unknown, and yet well known;

as dying, and, behold, we live;

as chastened, and not killed;

10    As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing;

as poor, yet making many rich;

as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

Philippians 3
7    But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8    Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9    And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
10    That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11    If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
12    Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13    Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14    I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15    Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded
