“Follow me,” said Jesus.
Stop following yourself, stop your independence, and depend on Me. Do I follow, in the power of me? No, that’s independence. Dependence is a work of the Spirit, a gift from Above, as a result of fresh conviction of the sin of independence/self-confidence/self-reliance. The fruit of dependency, is amazing humility and amazing love, joy, peace. Dependency is priceless — the pearl of great price, worth selling all to get. A dependent cares nothing for his own performance/worthiness/reputation. Doesn’t care if he’s pitied, or rejected. A dependent has fun regardless of circumstances.
