Matthew 5:3: “You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.
Galatians 2:20: Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him.
Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ.
My ego is no longer central.
It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God.
1 Timothy 6:17 …quit being so full of themselves and so obsessed with money, which is here today and gone tomorrow. Tell them to go after God… (The Message)
