Death To The Self-Life

So. I have been looking at, for the face of Jesus. It has been my prayer that I be more like Him. Mat 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

In order to be like Christ the self must die. My likes and dislikes, my wants, must die. My joy is to please Him. My pleasure is His joy.

Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
