Self supremacy

Galatians 2:20  "I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."

MB 15  "He who beholds Christ in His self-denial, His lowliness of heart, will be constrained to say, as did Daniel, when he beheld One like the sons of men, 'My comeliness was turned in me into corruption.' Daniel 10:8.  The independence and self-supremacy in which we glory are seen in their true vileness as tokens of servitude to Satan.  Human nature is ever struggling for expression, ready for contest; but he who learns of Christ is emptied of self, of pride, of love of supremacy, and there is silence in the soul.  Self is yielded to the disposal of the Holy Spirit.  Then we are not anxious to have the highest place.  We have no ambition to crowd, and elbow ourselves into notice, but we feel that our highest place is at the feet of our Savior.  We wait for Jesus, waiting for His hand to lead, listening for His voice to guide.  The Apostle Paul had this experience when he quoted the above verse.

This is the experience that each one of us need, to be happy and at peace with God and with ourselves.
