three things to have the kind of humility and love, that is compelling to seculars. 1) a deep foundation of Gospel-awareness in daily thought and deed, 2) significant longterm growth in self-awareness, 3) constant reminders throughout the day, of the sovereignty of God. There are no emotionally-healthy believers in my view, but there are many […]

in my less-sane moments, when my flesh reigns supreme, and I want MORE than what I have in Jesus. He and His imputed worthiness are UNsatisfying to me. I wannabe BETTER than I am. BETTER Christian.

Only the Jesus-dependent — the clueless-I-know-what’s-best, experience the peace that passes understanding. Life is unnecessarily intense/stressful for the confident-I-know-what’s-best addict, consumed with his/her own worthiness by judging others in order to compete with them, obsessing over human […]
