August 26 – “I Die Daily”
I enjoined that if any man would follow Me he should deny himself and take up his cross.
The denial thus impressed upon My disciples as necessary was not a mere matter of discipline, of giving up, of going without.
It was a total repudiation of any claim the self might make, ignoring it, refusing to acknowledge it.
Not once was this to be done, but daily; there was to be a daily recrucifixion of any part of the self-life not already completely dead.
