The quest for easy,
is central to the daily life of every human -- nonChristian AND Christian. Human-wisdom would have us believe that trusting our human-wisdom will enable us to manage our circumstances to deliver easy. But Scripture EXPOSES the foolishness and futility of self-reliance ever delivering happiness -- easy. Only Jesus-dependency delivers happiness, and Jesus-dependency has nothing to do with circumstances.
How can any Christian become more Jesus-dependent? Only by the work of Jesus' Spirit, over time, freshly convicting us, over and over, of our self-reliance -- human-wisdom-dependency. So is there anything we can DO? Yes, pay attention, especially when alone and undistracted, to our thoughts, feelings, reactions, and each time the Spirit EXPOSES to us, our human-wisdom-dependency, CONFESS. Ahhh.
Seculars are not compelled by the Jesus in us human-wisdom-dependent Christians.
