Just because I'm highly skilled

at projecting a humble persona, doesn't at ALL mean I'm humble. Successful politicians and Christian leaders are ALL highly skilled at appearing humble. We know how to keep our pride from being seen. We are wolves in sheep's clothing. Our biggest need is unusual self-awareness, but without an unusual foundation of grace, and an unusual amount of sovereignty-awareness as we go through our day, we are way-too scared to look inside and see the awful truth about ourselves -- that we aren't the great examples we imagine ourselves to be, but rather great examples of bad examples. Pray for the Spirit to open our eyes to see the TRUTH -- that there might be a widespread awakening, that the Church might become the Church in our day.
