is following Jesus’ agenda, not Dave’s agenda. What does it look like when I follow Dave’s agenda? Hurried, worried, intense, stressed, competitive, critical-judgmental, circumstance-dependent for my joy and peace. Following Jesus’ agenda? Clueless-I-know-what’s-best, confident Jesus knows, curious/expectant to see what He does NEXT, in me, others, circumstances, THANKing Him for everything — especially the harrrd, enjoying Him and His genius plan for everyone and everything, just as things are, experiencing an other-worldly peace that defies description. Problem is I never follow Jesus’ agenda unless Jesus’ Spirit is working in me, freshly convicting me of the sin of INdependence, following Dave’s agenda. I get zero credit, zero glory, for those times I’m freshly following Jesus and His agenda. Ahhh, the bliss of Jesus-dependency.
