I Die Daily

1 Corinthians 15:31, NIV: I die every dayI mean that,
brothersjust as surely as I glory over you in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I die every day
It is not enough to recognize that we are new
creatures within Christ, but we must put ourselves as clay in His hands for Him to mold
and transform us more and more. For us, this requires a daily decision; a decision to die
to selfand live to Him. Our old ways, thoughts, and understandings have no place in
the life of a follower of Jesus. We must die daily to what we would be in and of
ourselves, and find new life in what He would be in and through us.
