What is use-idolatry?

Wanting to be USED of Jesus in the lives of others -- both Christian and nonChristian, in more-powerful ways than I am. Uncontent with where Jesus has me right now, wanting MORE than Him and His imputed worthiness -- wanting some worthiness of my own, in my own eyes, and in the eyes of others, unsatisfied with the perfect, precious, pricey worthiness already imputed to me by Jesus. But it seems so noble to want to be USED more. The dark side of that motivation is pride, not humility.

What can we DO when we realize afresh that Jesus is not ENOUGH for us? CONFESS. Ahhh.
