Christ at the Center – part 2

Last week we took a very practical glance at what it looks like to have Christ at the center of your life. We took a bit of a survey of the book of Colossians and noted that Christ-centeredness must begin with a proper perspective. We must see Christ as all of life and in all of life…being captivated by His infinite worth and joyfully yielded to His Lordship. Christ is the whole pie! He flavors every slice of the pie that is the Christian’s life. Do you see your life this way? Do you have a Christ-centered perspective?

 

While a proper perspective is crucial to Christ-centeredness, Paul doesn’t stop there in His writing to the Church. For, Christ-centeredness requires effort – a grace-driven, Spirit-empowered effort. In other words, you’re not going to just cruise towards an increasingly Christ-centered life. As the Scripture says, we must “discipline ourselves for the purpose of godliness” [1 Tim. 4:7-10]. Today we’ll briefly remind ourselves of three basic disciplines that should be a part of a Christian’s life. These three godly rhythms will prove indispensable to your Christ-centered pursuit!
