Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

The Death of Death in the Death of Christ: John Owen, Key Quotes

[The following quotes are from John Owen, The Death of Death in the Death of Christ, Book 3, Chapter 7.]

"[B]y death [Christ] did deliver us from death, and that actually, so far as that the elect are said to die
and rise with him."

"He underwent death, that we might be delivered from death."

"[The satisfaction made by Christ on the Cross] was a full, valuable compensation, made to the justice of God, for all the sins of all those for whom he made satisfaction, by undergoing that same punishment which, by reason of the obligation that was upon them [due to sin], they themselves were bound to undergo."

"[T]he full and due debt of all those for whom Jesus Christ was responsible was fully paid in to God,
 according to the utmost extent of the obligation."

"[A] second payment of a debt once paid, or a requiring of it, is not answerable to the justice which God demonstrated in setting forth Christ to be a propitiation for our sins" (Rom 3:25).
