Why do I wannabe content?

For a follower of Jesus, contentment is a litmus-paper test for Jesus-dependency. Why do I wannabe Jesus-dependent? Because I know it’s right, and I wannabe a good follower of Jesus. Why do I wannabe a good follower of Jesus? Because I wanna feel good about myself. Jesus and His imputed worthiness are not ENOUGH for me. I ALSO wannabe a good Christian. No such thing as a good Christian. We’re all bad Christians. Jesus came for the likes of US. Grace flows DOWNhill to the failures, losers, needy ones, at the bottom. We don’t like the lowly bottom. We don’t like being great examples of bad examples. We wannabe on TOP. Admired by all for our wonderfulness, our outward obedience. So we live in denial of the depth of our prideful self-absorption, hidden from others, and from ourselves.
