As a Believer you cannot even begin to learn how to live until you first make up your mind to die. True life starts with the death of our will. This is not only counterintuitive but countercultural as well. We live in the “I’mma do me” generation. We want what we want when we want it. All of that needs to die. The sooner, the better.
Why? Because there is way too much life to live, experience, and enjoy. When we start dying we really start living! Only when you are fully aware of God’s presence in your life and His will for your life do you begin to gain the perspective of Heaven. In both good times and bad, it is in Him that we live, move, and breath…”Tim Ross”
Galatians 2:20 NLT
My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
