Matthew 16:25

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
All Commentaries on Matthew 16:25 Go To Matthew 16

John Chrysostom

AD 407
And because malefactors often suffer grievous things, that you should not suppose that simply to suffer evil is enough, He adds the reason of suffering, when He says, “And follow me.” For His sake you are to endure all, and to learn His other virtues; for this is to follow Christ aright, to be diligent in the practice of virtues, and to suffer all things for His sake. And then because this seemed severe, He softens it by shewing the abundant rewards of our pains, and the punishment of evil, “He that will save his life shall lose it.”
