A couple of different ways to live:
Frank Sinatra sang…
For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way
Yes, it was my way
The Apostle Paul said…
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Gal 2:20
The world, our flesh, and the devil says live for yourself. Do it your way.
Jesus says deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me. (Matthew 16:24)
