Thoughts on Obedience, Part IV

Christ's obedience was obedience unto death.  This gives me the perspective.  I am being asked to let go of something in me that must die before the new can be born.  Two things help to make this possible:  that the motive force is love;
that I do it in imitation of Christ.
