What is Your Life Centered On?
C.J. Mahaney writes in his book “Living The Cross-Centered Life: Keeping the Gospel THE Main Thing”
“Each of our lives is centered on something. What’s at the center of yours? Think about it for a moment. What’s really the main thing in your life? Only one thing can truly be first in priority; so what’s at the top of your list, second to none? What are you most passionate about? What do you love to talk about? What do you think about most when your mind is free?
Or try this, what is it that defines you? Is it your career? A relationship? Maybe it’s your family or your ministry? It could be some cause or movement or some political affiliation. Or perhaps your main thing is a hobby or talent you have or even your house and possessions…
It could be one of any number of good things – but when it comes to centering our life, what really qualifies as the one thing God says should be most important?”
“I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you…For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance; that Christ died for our sins.” I Corinthians 15:1,3 ESV
First importance. The Bible tells us that while there are many different callings and many possible areas of service in the kingdom of God, one transcendent truth should define our lives. One simple truth should motivate our work and affect every part of who we are. Christ died for our sins.
If there is anything in life that we should be passionate about, it’s the gospel.”
