When I’m worldly
I’m always in awe of human excellence – others’ and my own, outside the Church, and inside, and I’m always bored by Jesus and His excellence imputed to me. Unsatisfying. So when I’m worldly/insane, I’m always circumstance-dependent for my joy and peace. Pressure to perform. Horrible way to live. The only hope for this worldly believer, is the Spirit freshly convicting me of the sin of independence/pride/worldliness. Ahhh. Sanity.
I wannabe awed by Jesus, not by human excellence, not by human somebodies, not by impressive creations of us humans, but by the CreatorSustainer of all humans and all of our creations. No comparison. Ahhh. Sanity.
