Doing NOTHing on our own, trusting NOT our human-wisdom or the human-wisdom of others, because we’re disillusioned with human-wisdom. And, our eyes and thoughts are fixed on SovereignShepherdJesus, asking Him about everything, thanking Him about everything just as it is, and everyone just as we are, clueless-we-know-what’s-best, trusting that He DOES.
Jesus-wisdom-reliance is the pearl of great price, worth selling all to get. Only Jesus-wisdom-reliance delivers Jesus-power — Jesus-dependency/sanity/other-worldly-peace/other-worldly-love, so we are fruitful with seculars. Jesus-wisdom-reliance is a fruit of the Spirit’s work, convicting us of the sin of INdependence/human-wisdom-reliance. We get zero credit for any experience of Jesus-wisdom-reliance.
Solution to the problem? CONFESS when you spot human-wisdom-reliance in you.
— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, a natural at human-wisdom-reliance, but encouraged at times, because of the Spirit’s work
