More Thoughts on Dying to Self
Andrew Murray said,
As believers we know we are to die to self and live for Christ. Therefore look upon every day as lost that does not encourage both this death and this life.This is a kind of dying and living we will never be done with, as long as we remain in the flesh. Let us not think we can dispense with the dying part. Spurgeon, discussing the withering ministry of the Holy Spirit, says:
The Spirit of God, like the wind, must pass over the field of our souls and cause our beauty to be as a fading flower. He must so convince us of sin and so reveal ourselves to ourselves that we will see that 'the flesh profits nothing.'
