When I’m indifferent to Jesus,
I never feel like a sinner. But I’m clear-sighted about sin in others. However when I’m freshly convicted of my sin, see myself as a sinner, Jesus is a huge deal in my life. Shepherd. Lord. Nothing else hardly matters.
Jesus has almost nothing to offer non-sinners. Just a model of a perfect, loving human, but so what? The nicest, sweetest, kindest thing He ever does for me, is to freshly convict me of my sin, so I’m freshly enjoying Him, others, self, circumstances, just as they are. Even nonbelievers with opposite values. Even enemies. Wow.
