The Salvation that God Promises in Christ Requires My Death

The salvation that God promises in Christ requires my death.  Here I am, cheerfully going about my daily affairs, picking and choosing the roes I would like to play from the advertisements, movies and “put-together” people I admire around me.  I may even find a role for Jesus, although who am I to say that others are wrong for finding someone or something else more helpful for achieving their goals in life?  Then along comes the law, nailing me, telling me who I really am, telling me how this Character I have written for myself is doomed.
