I am currently reading: Slave: The Hidden Truth about Your Identity in Christ by John MacArthur. When I complete the book, I plan to review the work. In the mean time, here is a screen shot with a snippet worthy of your comments:
Read and reread the highlighted section. What are you impressions?

MacArthur often preaches this same point. I think he is exactly right in this statement, and I find it powerful. Another passage that should be brought up in this context (by the same writer, Paul) is Galatians 2:20, “Not I but Christ lives in me” (etc.).
Great quote from a book I hope to read later this year.
I puchased it for my kindle and started yesterday — I am about 1/2 way through. MacArthur is one of my favorite authors eversince I read “The Gospel According to Jesus” in the early 90’s.
