When I’m not in awe of Jesus,

I’m always in awe of me.  Not even others.  Me.  I pay attention to others, because I compete with them, all of them, from somebodies to nobodies, always looking for their weakness, even an Achilles’ heel if necessary.  So that.  I can feel superior to them.  So that.  I can feel good about myself.  Because.  I’m unsatisfied with the imputed worthiness of Jesus.  I want something more.  Some of my own worthiness.  ShepherdDave.

But when the Spirit freshly convicts me of the sin of independence/self-reliance/self-confidence/pride/self-awe, I’m instantly delivered back to being DumbSheepDave, experiencing the bliss of abundant LIFE, feeling the love of my Shepherd, and unconditionally enjoying my Shepherd, others, my failure-self, and His genius plan for all of us, just as it is.  Jesus-awe.  Ahhh.

–DumbSheepDave, grateful for the convicting work of the Shepherd’s Spirit, momentarily, wondering if the pre-believers around him are noticing more humility and love in him in 2014
