Jesus is not ENOUGH for me

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.  BETTER evangelist.  BETTER faith.  BETTER dependency on Jesus.  BETTER at being gracious to everyone — inside my head, where I judge everyone and everything, wanting to feel superior to everyone.  And I want an even-BETTER car.  And a BETTER nation, and a BETTER world.  I’m tired of being a great example of a bad example — tired of being such a loser at following Jesus, such an ungracious malcontent.  I want everyone everywhere to be wowed by my BETTER.  I do not like the way He’s made me, and I do not like the role He’s scripted for me.  I want BETTER.  I wanna read a book, or go to a seminar, that would guarantee a BETTER me.

–ShepherdDave, living in denial of his misery, except when the Spirit opens his eyes to see the real Dave’sFlesh, so he’s freshly convicted of the sin of independence/pride, so he’s momentarily DumbSheepDave, self-aware, self-accepting, others-accepting, and especially Jesus-accepting, so he’s able to enjoy everyone just as they are, and everything about Jesus’ genius plan, just as it is, needing no BETTER, so the seculars around him might experience the other-worldly humility and other-worldly love of Jesus
