A Christ Centered Life

“For to me to live is Christ…” Phil. 1:21

What constitutes the center of a Christian life well lived?
Is the center accumulated Biblical knowledge?
Is the center disciplined Chrisitan thinking about life?
Is the center cultivated Christian discipline?
Is the center obeying Christian principles that match the design of the universe?
Is the center passion for social justice in the world?
Is the center a retreat from the outer world?
Is the center death to self?
Is the center action for the cause of Jesus?
Is the center the church I attend?

The center of the Christian life is a living Person.

The center of a Christian life well lived is continuous cooperation with Christ who is the Christian life within every believer. The center of a Christian life well lived is Christ in us.  He is the source and hope of all Christian living.

As disciples we lose our way when anything or anyone else except Christ is our center.   We lose our way, the circumference of our love shrinks and God’s glory is not seen when Christ is not our life.

The Christian life well lived is living Jesus well.
