Christ-esteem not self-esteem,
Christ-fulfillment not self-fulfillment,
Christ-reliance not self-reliance,
Christ-motivation not self-motivation,
Christ-assurance not self-assurance,
Christ-affirmation not self-affirmation,
Christ-serving not self-serving,
Christ’s righteousness not self-righteousness,
being Christ-sustained not self-sustained, and
