To one who asked George Muller the secret of his service, he replied, “There was a day when I died, utterly died,” and, as he spoke, he bent lower until he almost touched the floor—“died to George Muller, his opinions, preferences, tastes & will, died to the world, its approval or censure, died to the approval or blame even of my brethren & friends, and since then I have studied to show myself approved unto God.”
“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.” – Paul (Gal 2:20 ESV)
“I have now concentrated all my prayers into one, and that one prayer is this, that I may die to self, and live wholly to Him.”- Charles Spurgeon.
