But if it dies, it yields a great harvest. 25  Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. 26 If anyone serves me, he must follow me, and wherever I am found, my servant must be also. If anyone serves me, my Father will show him honor.
