I experience the love of Jesus afresh,

whenever the Spirit freshly convicts me of the sin of independence/concern-for-my-own-worthiness/dissatisfaction-with-Jesus-and-His-imputed-worthiness.  Sometimes the Spirit uses Scripture, sermons, books, and sometimes none of the above is helpful, none is used to freshly convict me, and for a while I wade in lifeless independence, confident-I-know-what’s-best, circumstance-dependent for my joy and peace.  Pride is the worst sort of prison.  He who has a sense of only having been forgiven little/conditionally, loves others little/conditionally, self little/conditionally, Jesus little/conditionally, and loves little/conditionally His genius plan for everyone.  What does it mean to love Jesus conditionally?  When He doesn’t order my life the way I think it should go, and I don’t feel loved by Him, close to Him.

–ShepherdDave, powerless to change himself, needing fresh conviction of sin so he might momentarily be DumbSheepDave, enjoying the bliss of Jesus-dependency/humility, so the pre-believers around him might experience the other-worldly humility and other-worldly love of Jesus
