It is not about dying.
It is all about living. Living the life God gives us through the amazing sacrifice of His son Jesus.
God’s goal for us is that we, like His son Jesus, live a sacrificial life. We must sacrifice what we want for what God wants.
It is of no value to God to give Him your life for death. He wants you to be a “living sacrifice”— to let Him have all your strengths that have been saved and sanctified through Jesus (Romans 12:1). This is what is acceptable to God. ~Oswald Chambers
