I see myself as a gracious person,
when I’m self-deceived about the real me, imagining myself a follower of Jesus, when I’m really a follower of me. I imagine myself a wonderful person, more wonderful than others whose weaknesses I can spot, but blind to my competitive need to feel superior. Feel good about Dave at the expense of others.
–ShepherdDave, clear-sighted about the sins/weaknesses of others, needing fresh conviction of the sin of dissatisfaction with Jesus and His imputed worthiness, 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
