to die.

i've really been focusing a lot of my time trying to die to self. i want to die to my self and live for Christ. "rid me of myself". i want to pick up my cross. it's my prayer every single day, and it will be for the rest of my life. i've always said that my identity and value comes from Christ. but i wonder if it's really true, i want it and desire it to be so but i don't know if that's how i really live. i hope so. but i was just reading something and came across this quote that ties in to all that nicely and i'd like to share it....

The Christian life can be explained only in terms of Jesus Christ, and if your life as a Christian can still be explained in terms of you – your personality, your willpower, your gift, your talent, your money, your courage, your scholarship, your dedication, your sacrifice, or your anything – then although you may have the Christian life, you are not yet living it.
-Ian Thomas
