Until I see the impossibility of obeying
Jesus, I will not humble myself and ask for His help. And I will live in denial of my independence/evil/wickedness. I will dumb down obedience, dumb down sin/idolatry/addiction, so I feel somewhat successful at following Him. Whyzat? Because humans were made to feel good about ourselves, either through our own righteousness, or an alien righteousness. Only the humble believer is able to lose all his own righteousness, and still be happy.
–ShepherdDave, needing fresh conviction of the sin of independence/pride/worldliness, so he’s momentarily DumbSheepDave, enjoying the bliss of Jesus-dependencey: enjoying his ShepherdJesus and His imputed righteousness, and His genius plan for every detail of Dave’s life, and enjoying as is, others and himself, so the pre-believers around him might be drawn to his ShepherdJesus
