I’m not wowed by Jesus,

unless I’ve been freshly convicted of my sin, and typically, my sin of independence/shepherdness/self-confidence/orphan-ness/self-reliance.   And I find that others aren’t wowed by the Jesus in me, if I’m not freshly wowed by Jesus, and His salvation of me, His righteousness imputed to me.   Especially pre-believers.

Fixing my eyes and thoughts on Jesus doesn’t seem to do anything for me, unless the Spirit is at work, freshly convicting me of my sin of trying to find LIFE someplace other than, in a relationship with Jesus.   But once I’ve been freshly convicted, it’s so easy, so natural, for me to fix my eyes and thoughts on Jesus, to be overwhelmed by Him and His love for me, so that nothing else hardly matters.  Effortless.  Doesn’t last long, however, due to the world, flesh, devil.
