It seems WRONG

to not know what to do in a situation.  UnAmerican. UnChristian. We’re trained from an early age to KNOW what to do.  INdependence, not [shudder] DEpendence.  Activism applauded, while anything remotely passive is negative, pathetic.  No wonder we Christians are hardly any different than the seculars around us.  We’re not the aliens and strangers we’re called to be.  Adults should KNOW what to do.  It’s embarrassing to admit I don’t know what to do, how to do, when to do.  Pride, not humility.  A humble person has no problem admitting s/he doesn’t know what to do.  A humble CHRISTIAN asks Jesus what to do.  And THANKS Jesus for the uncertain situation, with a curiosity and expectancy to see what SovereignShepherdJesus does NEXT, in the believer, others, circumstances.   Ahhhh.  Jesus-centered passivity, leading to Jesus-centered activity.  Humble activism.  Characterized by an other-worldly peace that clearly surpasses the peace provided by human-centered understanding, power, activity.

“For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” 1 Pet 2:25  Really??  Seems to me we’re sheep going astray, needing to be returned.

The essence of worldliness is,

fixing my eyes and thoughts on my performance/worthiness, instead of Jesus and His imputed performance/worthiness.  Worldliness is contagious.  Outside the Church, and inside too.  A worldly feels pre
