PART 2 OF 2
Foundational in Jesus' teaching: to access the new life he offers, I must first allow God to put my old self-life to death. The cross must precede the resurrection. Grasping on to my own damaged life only leads me deeper into despair. Laying it down in order to receive a new, Christ-life leads to pure joy.
