The point made here is between what the Bible really says and common human perspective. And I believe the difference can't help but change your life.
In addition to the scriptures quoted, see also Colossians 3:4:
"When Christ, WHO IS OUR LIFE, shall appear . . ."
Shared from Deb Bullington
“Immaturity considers the Lord Jesus a helper. Maturity knows Him to be life itself."
“Christian living is not our living with Christ’s help, it is Christ living His life in us. Therefore that portion of our lives that is not His living is not Christian living; and that portion of our service that is not His doing is not Christian service; for all such life and service have but a human and natural source, and Christian life and service have a supernatural and spiritual source.”
“In our private prayers and in our public services, we are forever asking God to do things that He either has already done or cannot do because of our unbelief. We plead for Him to speak when He has already spoken and is at that very moment speaking. We ask Him to come when He Is already present and waiting for us to recognize Him. We beg the Holy Spirit to fill us while all the time we are preventing Him by our doubts.”
2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue
Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ
Colossians 2:9-10 For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in him
