John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 9:23

Let him deny himself, and take up his cross — The necessity of this duty has been shown in many places: the extent of it is specified here, daily — Therefore that day is lost wherein no cross is taken up.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 9:23

And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross (g) daily, and follow me.

(g) Even as one day follows another, so does one cross follow another, and the cross is by the figure of speech metonymy taken for the miseries of this life: for to be hanged on the cross was the most grievous and cruel punishment that there was amongst the Jews.
