What the Crucified Life is not:

1. Self-hatred
2. Self-abuse
3. Neglecting responsibilities
4. Denying our legitimate needs
5. Always feeling guilty
6. Being gloomy instead of faith-filled
So what IS the Crucified Life?
The Crucified Life is saying "no" to whatever keeps me from saying "yes" to Jesus.
• Saying NO to the HAPPINESS myth
Emily Esfahani Smith, The Power Of Meaning (Crown, 2017)

“According to Psychology Today, in 2000, the number of books published about happiness was a modest fifty. In 2008, that number had skyrocketed to 4,000….

And yet, there is a major problem with the happiness frenzy: it has failed to deliver on its promise. Though the happiness industry continues to grow, as a society, we're more miserable than ever. Indeed, social scientists have uncovered a sad irony—chasing happiness actually makes people unhappy.”
Malcolm Muggeridge, British journalist, writer, and Christian apologist

“I can say that I never knew what joy was like until I gave up pursuing happiness….For [this] I am beholden to Jesus.”
• Saying NO to the WORLDLINESS myth
