1 Corinthians15:31 NKJV - "I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily."
DEATH is the cause for some of the greatest JOYS I have or ever will have!!
1. Christ DIED for MY sins and made it possible for Him to become my SAVIOR! JOY!!
2. Christ DEATH made it possible for sin to be DEFEATED in both its penalty and its power! JOY!!
3. When I DIE to my selfishness every day, I can enjoy that FREEDOM from sins' power! JOY!!
4. When I DIE daily to my selfishness, I can LIVE for the glory of Christ! JOY!!
5. When I DIE daily to my selfishness, I can have Christ's life living through my body and be a blessing to my family, friends, and even strangers! JOY!!
6. When DEATH happens, my body is freed from all its aches, pains, cancer, broken bones, stubbed toes, and ingrown toenails! JOY!!
7. When DEATH happens, this body is empty, and I am ALIVE in glory, I will be with CHRIST and my LOVED ONES FOREVER! JOY!!
