Dying to Myself

Dying to Myself

“The problem with dying to myself is that it’s so daily.  I have to make the choice over and over again.  I can live for myself or I can live for Christ, which means picking up my cross — at the drugstore, at the gas pump, in my living room, in traffic.

“Not only must I serve the people I love and admire, and those who can make my life easier, but dying to myself also means serving those I don’t really like or understand and even those who have hurt me…It takes dying to yourself.

If Jesus can wash the feet of Judas (John 13), then it’s time for me to come to the end of myself and follow his example.”

The End of Me, by Kyle Idleman (204-205)
