Many have been taught that self must be daily crucified…

i like this…

Many have been taught that self must be daily crucified and that the self is evil and must be denied.

Although Jesus did say to deny self, the definition of self has been very convoluted. When Jesus referred to self, He was not talking about the soul.

Also, He was not talking about the self as synonymous with the flesh. We know this because Jesus said to deny self, whereas the only answer for the flesh is crucifixion in Christ (see Gal. 2:20).

thanks jonathan for your teaching, love it…

this one is personal for me.  i grew up in a christian setting where ‘self-denial’ & being “dead to self” was over promoted.  as a result i would sabotage the fruit & favor of god on my life.  i was so good at being a christian zombie that i eventually had a nervous breakdown that took years to recover from.  i had no personality & no life.  i gave it all away.

it’s only in the last seven years that i have been learning about the outstanding favor of god on my life… learning to love it, enjoy it, & give it away.

yay god!
