True Follower of Christ

 Never pity yourself in anything, crucify yourself - your old man, nestling above all in the flesh - and you will strike at the root of all your vices. Bear patiently all that is unpleasant to your flesh; do not spare it, oppose it, and you will become a true follower of Christ. The whole wisdom of a Christian consists in wisely opposing the flesh in everything throughout life.
