Reckon Your Own Life Dead
By D. H. Dolman
You cannot make the Christ-life in you fuller and more active than it is. You need not do it either, in Him is the fullness of the Godhead bodily. But you can every day and every hour reckon your own life, with its wishes and plans, dead. After having done this, this should be your constant walk. The more your own life is given to die, the more His life will become powerful in you, and His resurrection life and power will be manifested to you....
The power is not in me, but in Him. He is the powerhouse. Only as long as I abide in Him can His power flow through me. In our Lord we find all we need, but you only get it if you are in touch with Him. You can never be independent of Him.
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in Me” (John 15:4).
