Every single day we must seek God and ask Him to remove this way of falsehood from us, which means every single day you will experience death. When we hear that we are to die to our sin, deny ourselves daily, and be crucified, we should think about the pain, loss, grief, and sorrow that comes with death because it reveals four things: I inherently love sin; this sin is inside of me; this sin, that is inside of me, that I love, needs to die; and this death is going to be a painful loss. Did you catch that? Something that you inherently love, something inside of you, is dying, and if it isn’t, it’s killing you.
Due to our human limitations, there are things in the Bible that are difficult to understand, but there is so much more that is simple, clear, and direct as it relates to how we are to conduct ourselves in the world. As you read the Bible, and meditate on God’s laws, do so with a mind to wisdom. This means that you are pondering how God’s precepts ought to influence how you live your life.
