Why do I wannabe a model Christian?

Updated: Sep 13

Humble, contented, at peace, with contagious love? Because Jesus and His imputed worthiness are UNsatisfying to me — to my human-wisdom, which is responsible for the dark side of my motivation for holiness. It seems so noble to wannabe a model Christian. One of the good guys. A winner, not a [shudder] loser. That’s my human-wisdom-reliance wanting some worthiness of my own. Pride, not humility.


A humble Christian is not bummed by failure, by others’ disrespect, contempt. A humble Christian is never defensive, fearful, frustrated, discouraged, or bored. Contented with Jesus and His imputed worthiness, needing no other worthiness. And the faith of a humble Christian is contagious to surrounding seculars. Humble Christians reproduce.


— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, not a humble Christian, and grateful that Jesus came for failures/sinners, that Dave qualifies for grace
