People imagine that dying to self makes one miserable. But no, it is just the opposite! It is the refusal to die to self- your own plans, ambitions, and glory- that makes one miserable. The more we know of death with Him and identify with His cross, the more we shall know of His life in us!

   There is one simple but all-inclusive guide which the Word of God gives to regulate our walk with Jesus, and it is found in Colossians 3:15. “Let the peace of God rule in your hearts.” Anything that disturbs the peace of God in our hearts is SIN, no matter how small it is, and no matter how little like sin it may appear, or how justified we feel.

   Die to yourself and live for Him.
