From “Discipleship and Discipline”, by William H. Hicks, copyright March, 2005:

“Disciples must be selfless.  They must be willing to put the purposes of their Master above personal, selfish, or self-centered objectives.  Paul uses the same metaphor in II Timothy 2: 4, when he says, “No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.”  Our Lord provided the marching orders for His disciples inMatthew 16: 24, where He said, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me.”  It is important to point out that for disciples of Christ, He has already led the way.  He does not send us where He Himself has not already trod.”
