Why do I wannabe a model Christian?

Humble, contented, at peace, with contagious love?  Because Jesus and His imputed worthiness are UNsatisfying to me — to my human-wisdom, which is responsible for the dark side of my motivation for holiness.  It seems so noble to wannabe a model Christian.  One of the good guys.  A winner, not a [shudder] loser.  That’s my human-wisdom-reliance wanting some worthiness of my own.  Pride, not humility.

A humble Christian is not bummed by failure, by others’ disrespect, contempt.  A humble Christian is never defensive, fearful, frustrated, discouraged, or bored.  Contented with Jesus and His imputed worthiness, needing no other worthiness.  And the faith of a humble Christian is contagious to surrounding seculars.  Humble Christians reproduce.
