What is stupid-awe?
Being in awe of human excellence – others and my own, or wanting to be in awe of my own, by assuming excellence is credited to humans achieving greatness, or a product achieving greatness. Intermediate-awe. Misplaced-awe. Horizontal-awe. Only the competitive have stupid-awe. ShepherdDave. Intense, prideful.
Jesus-awe is recognizing that Jesus the CreatorSustainer of the Universe, gets all credit for all human excellence. Ultimate-awe. Vertical-awe. DumbSheepDave. Competes with no one. Enjoys everyone. Jerks included. Because he sees his Shepherd behind everyone and everything. Ahhh.
Only the Spirit can momentarily transform ShepherdDave into DumbSheepDave. Jesus-awe. Short-lived humility.
–WeakDave, with less stupid-awe than ever, because of the convicting work of Jesus’ Spirit, wondering if the pre-believers around him are noticing more peace and joy
