We have to die. Anything that constitutes the 'self' needs to be sacrificed on the cross on a daily basis so we can be reborn. But my question.. if everything that makes us an individual is supposed to go, what is left? How are there angels, archangels, dominions, powers, etc. that constitute an hierarchy, with each of them having a role to play? Is it that they still work to die on the cross as well?
