"What is Our 'Practical Application' for Self-Crucifixion & Self-Burial... Since We Already have the Whole 'Dying Daily'-thing Down-Pat?"

"Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord."  ~Romans 6: 11 (KJV)

"I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.  Awake to [*His] righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. ~1 Corinthians 15: 31, 34, 56-57 (KJV)


What is our "practical application" for self-crucifixion and self-burial?  We seem to have the "process" or "work in progress" or "prophetic processing" down pat, regarding our own "self-dying"; even though, few of us seem to be showing any of the fruit (or manifestation) of the end of those things in which we place so much faith... those things in which we have placed so much trust.  We have become the so-called experts in what we, ourselves, are not even experiencing firsthand.  How could we daily "crucify ourselves"?  Not without, at least, another set of arms and hands (you know, to hold the hammer and nails); and how are we supposed to dig our own grave and carry our own casket, when we are the ones already lying in it, in them, both?  Yet again, we are the experts on "dying daily"?  (I'll avoid the whole issue of "inner-healing" in this e-mail, because it is redundant... another form of fear, control and manipulation.)  The American "church," modern-day church "culture," and current "prophetic movement" have all lost sight of Who this is supposed to be about... not US, but Jesus Christ!  We remain self-absorbed... our eyes scrutinizing ourselves and one another, versus beholding the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God, in the Face of Jesus Christ.  In all of our vain endeavors at "dying daily," do we ever simply reckon ourselves "to be dead" to our own self-righteousness; "to be dead" to all of the performance requirements and obedience standards that we perceive our "Heavenly Pharaoh-Dragon Father" is demanding of us, in order to achieve and maintain "perfection," "righteousness," or "God-likeness" in His sight?  "Are we dead" to our ongoing, failed attempts at establishing and maintaining our own self-righteousness; through simply accepting, or receiving, daily the victory that God has already, freely given... and is freely giving us... through the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ?
