20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Are you willing to die to yourself and give up control over your life in order to let Christ live through you giving Him control? Are you willing to put aside your interests and desires for the sake of Christ and His desires? This means willingly laying down your dreams and goals and wants, leaving them at the foot of the cross, and then letting Jesus resurrect those that He desires for you. Can you do that?

Dying to self is only half of this verse though. The second half is to live for God. Are you willing to live for God daily? Are you willing to live boldly and passionately? This is active, not passive, doing, not just thinking, allowing Jesus to shine through you as you live out your God given mission. Can you do that?

Jesus gave His all for you. Are you willing to do the same in return?
