This apparently paradoxical principle was emphasized by the Lord Jesus more often than any other (Matthew 16:25; Mark 8:35; Luke 9:24; 17:33; John 12:25). The same truth is also stressed by Paul (Romans 12:1,2; 2 Corinthians 5:14,15; 6:9,10; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:5-11; 2 Timothy 2:11,12). This divine paradox of dying to self and living unto God is the very essence of a truly happy and fulfilling life in this world and eternal life in the world to come.
