Unless you are unusually-self-aware,

you won't realize how unhappy and uncontent you are when you're human-wisdom-dependent. You'll just think your life has always been this way. So without tastes of Heaven -- Jesus-dependency, you won't know what you're missing.


How can a Christian become more self-aware? By the work of the Spirit, opening our eyes to human-wisdom-dependency in us. And without a foundation of grace -- of Jesus' unconditional love for us, we can't emotionally handle our human-wisdom-dependency being exposed to us by the convicting work of the spirit. So we'll focus on the sins/weaknesses of others rather than face the awful truth about ourselves.


Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, and so miserable to trust in ME. And Christians who trust in ourselves are BORING, uncompelling, to nearby seculars. No wonder the Church is so dismissed by seculars and other nonChristians. We badly need another Great Awakening.


Thank You, Jesus, for Your genius plan, of making the Church so needy for revival.


-- Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, as needy as they come
