If people were awed by Jesus

why aren’t people awed by the Jesus in me?  Because there is so little of Him in me, and so much of me in me?  So much Dave-agenda, Dave-dependency, and so little Jesus-dependency?  So much self-confidence, so little confidence in Jesus and His genius plan for my life, and others’ lives?  So much Jesus-bless-my-agenda praying?  So much using Jesus to get what I want?
