I would agree with your argument and expand on the fact that we are called to do what Christ did for us. We are called to die. We are not called to pursue our dreams and make a name for ourselves but to further the glory of God and his name. Tired from a long day at work, we should die to ourselves and clean the dirty kitchen, and, whats more, we shouldn’t make a big deal about it. Maybe someone is unjustly accusing you of something and you should be able to bear it like Christ did in the shape of a cross. Our lives should be an ongoing extension of the life of Christ and we should be conduits of his grace, mercy, and unconditional love.
