My example is "dying daily".
1Co 15:31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
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.
Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
2Co 4:10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
In all of these, the death is physical, persecution, and giving of yourself for the gospel. Not one instance in scripture is about overcoming sin. When this was pointed out to me, I thought, wow! Who turned on the lights? But for many years I've watched the majority of people I tell disagree, argue, deny it, and the worse part, continue in their self efforts to do what Jesus has already done.
