Dying To Self!

Jesus died in our place so that through His death, burial, and resurrection we would be reconciled to bear much fruit in our lives. We literally have to die to self in order to experience our new life in Christ. Jesus said in John 3:7, “Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Paul explains to the Galatians the process of dying to self as one in which he has been “crucified with Christ,” and now Paul no longer lives, but Christ lives in him. Paul’s old life, with its propensity to sin and to follow the ways of the world, is dead, and the new Paul is the dwelling place of Christ who lives in and through Him.

“I die daily” echoes Jesus’ command to those who want to follow Him: “If anyone would come after me let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me” (Luke 9:23).
