The foundational quality of being Jesus-like,


doing NOTHing on my own. Only Jesus-dependents are Jesus-like. No agenda of my own. No hurry. No intensity. Other-worldly peaceful, content. Other-worldly humble. Unconditional lover of everyone and everything. Thanking SovereignShepherdJesus about everyone and everything. No attempts at fixing others, unless invited. An observer, not a contestant, unless Jesus directs.


How does a Christian become Jesus-like, Jesus-dependent? Only by the work of the Spirit, freshly convicting us of our human-wisdom-dependency, our INdependence/willfulness/agenda. And it doesn't last long in my experience, because of the overwhelming human-wisdom-dependence all around us, outside the Church and inside, that produces God-bless-my-agenda praying, attempting to direct the CreatorSustainer of the Universe, according to our human-wisdom.


Brothers and sisters, what can we DO? Pay close attention to our thoughts, feelings, reactions, as we go through a day, asking the Spirit to open our eyes to see the extent of our human-wisdom-dependency, so we can CONFESS, and be momentarily free, Jesus-like, Jesus-dependent, sovereignty-aware. Ahhh.


-- Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, as human-wisdom-dependent as they come, except when freshly convicted by the Spirit

Why no voters in Heaven?

Or politicians? Or democracy? Because to know how to vote, what to do, I have to be confident-I-know-what's-best -- rely on human-wisdom. No corruption in Heaven, or willfulness, agenda, pride, rud
