A dead man feels no pressure,
no fear, no frustration, no discouragement. Only those ALIVE to their agenda experience stressful living. Only those confident-they-know-what’s-best have an agenda. The nicest, kindest, sweetest thing that Jesus ever does for us kids of His, is to freshly convict of us of our independence/confidence-we-know-what’s-best/pride/worldliness, so we are freshly undone, contrite, dead to our own worthiness/reputation, freshly captivated by Jesus and His imputed worthiness, so that Jesus is ENOUGH for us, needing nothing more.
— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, needing fresh conviction of the sin of independence, so the Jesus in him might be contagious to the seculars around him
