“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.” (Galatians 2:20)
I turn my life and will over to God. I seek to obey the best I can. You lose a life, but you gain a life -- a life much better than the one you lost. In the end, it turns out that nothing you lost was really worth keeping anyway.
-- John Ortberg in The Me I Want To Be
