Dead people, they never feel anything!  You could do anything to them or say anything.  You could kick them, spit on them, tell them how ugly they are, but you will not get any response.  The corpse will not retaliate.  No bad attitudes, pouting, anger.  Why?  Because it’s dead like we are supposed to be.  
“Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him.” (Rom 6:8)
“It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him.”  (2 Tim 2:11)  
Wow!  Are you hurt easily when someone says something or does something to you?  Are there problems in relationships?   Pride is alive.  BUT, the good news is that you have already been forgiven!  So receive His forgiveness, the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness!  “I am so sorry Lord, thank you that I AM forgiven and righteous!”  Remember, you're IN Christ!
“There is, then, now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit; for the law of the Spirit of the life in Christ Jesus did set me free from the law of the sin and of the death.” (Rom 8:1-2)  No condemnation! We are IN Christ Jesus, we have His Spirit-the Spirit of life, and we are free from sin and death!
