My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
During Jesus’ life, he served, loved, and even sacrificed His life for us. That’s not an easy example to live up to, but it does put into perspective the expectations we have for our relationships. We have to die to ourselves in order to be the kind of people that follows the example of Jesus.
