The Christian life is a burden
when my flesh is reigning supreme — conscientious about avoiding sin, doing right, believing right, so I feel good about myself. But the Christian life is a DELIGHT when the Spirit has freshly convicted me of the sin of independence/confidence-I-know-what’s-best — unsatisfied with Jesus and His imputed worthiness, wanting some of my own. Being freshly dead to my own worthiness so I am enabled to enjoy the lowly role He’s scripted for me of being a great example of a bad example, brings amazing peace to my soul, enabling me to enjoy everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is — all according to Jesus’ genius plan. Ahhh.
