Not coaxing you to tell us your private question:
I'd like to say that I believe that just one verse can have a different application base on the question and situation.
from this I get a few things:
Could be that you have to make the effort
Death to self, a daily crucifixion of the flesh.
Could be that you are feeling guilty and that God is saying that once you repent in you heart and with your mouth, that is all you need to do because Jesus did the "work". And that you should leave you guilt at the cross.
Could be that the message is for you to focus on the Jesus in you so that you can be a light of God for others to see.
Could be that you are looking for ways to outwardly carry Jesus sacrafice and are missing the revelation part or vice versa, you are looking for the revelation but not focusing on the cross.
Could be a comforting verse that says: I am in your heart! My sacrafice, my love and all that I have created you to become is already there inside of you waiting to blossom, just waiting for you to recognize me.
It could be that you, yourself in one way or another are being "laid to the cross" and this is a reminder that you have the victory in Christ who is revealed the strongest in your own weakest monents.
I could probably keep on going but I think I made my point. Hope at least one of these were a help!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. When your judgements come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness.
