Death means loss. To die means to lose, to give up.
Whatever you can’t give up will rule you. Whatever you are unwilling to forsake, if necessary, will enslave you – be it a person or a thing.
It is only by giving up that you truly own.
In order to defeat death, and bring life to those who believe in Him, Jesus Christ had to give up His earthly, fleshly life. His earthly life was the seed. He obtained an earthly life, was made flesh and blood, so He could have a seed to sow.
It takes death to defeat death. Until you are willing to die, you are not yet ready to live.
“They overcame him by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” ~ Revelations 12:11
“The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” ~ John 12:25
You must exchange an inferior life for a superior life.
You must give up what you have to create what you want.
There’s no other way.
You can only break the power of fear over your life when you confront that fear.
Death is the path to life.
