“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20 NKJV
As the passage says, I don't live, it is Christ that is living in me. If this is to be true in our lives, we have to die to self. That means I have to let go of my life and let God be in control. This is something we should be constantly doing. The key is found in the fact that death to self occurs as we relinquish all that we are to Him, and Him alone. All the while living in faith and knowing that God loves me and knows what is best for my life.
There is no greater peace in life than a life totally surrendered to living in that kind of faith.
