Understand that to know Christ you should have a withering existence. This means, to know Christ you must lead a dying life. The more you die to yourself, the more you will live unto God. The more beyond words yourself, the more you will live unto God. You will never appreciate radiant things except if you are prepared to languish hardship over Christ. Nothing is progressively worthy to God, nothing increasingly accommodating for you on this planet. When there is a decision to be made, take the restricted way. This by itself will make you progressively like Christ. That’s it!!!
