By Vance Havner
We had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead (2 Cor. 1:9).
The Scriptures speak of denying self (Matt. 16:24), judging one’s self (1 Cor. 11:31), the crucifixion of self (Rom. 6:6; Gal. 5:24).
What to do with yourself? Agree and submit to your execution!
