Crucified with Christ

"God's will for us--as it was for Christ-- is a self-emptied life: emptied of self and filled with Him! The condition is one of yieldedness on our part. We are filled with the Spirit as we are emptied of self. (Dr. William Greathouse, "The Evangelist's Perspective", Spring 2008)

I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who lives, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life that I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:19-20)
