My Right to Myself: by Oswald Chambers

Our claim to our right to ourselves clouds our ability to see God and come to Him

Adam disobeyed, and there entered in the disposition of sin,the disposition of self realisation---I am my own God.
This disposition may work out in a hundred and one different ways, decorous morality or in indecorous immorality, but it has the one basis--my claim to my right to myself.
That disposition was never in our Lord.
Self- will, self -assertiveness, self-seeking were never in Him.

From "The Psychology of Redemption" by Oswald Chambers
