My friends, living a Christ centered life in the chaos and crises that swirls in our global environment requires that we grow spiritually daily. 1 Corinthians 15:58 reminds us of this truth “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain”.
The roadmap to living a Christ centered life lies in:
- Standing firm in our faith – This requires an unshakeable faith that regardless of what the situation, circumstance or event, we resolve not to give up. This is only attainable in the knowledge of God’s word and promises for us and in the place of prayer, asking for strength to keep standing.
- Living a godly life – We live in an unbelieving world and we must be that town built on a hill that cannot be hidden through our love for others in action, attitude and behavior.
- Living life with the future in mind – Knowing that we have the hope of eternity in Heaven with Christ, it renders insignificant the chaos and crises of this world.
Christ follower, living a Christ centered life gives us the freedom and peace to live and enjoy life as God intended it. If you are currently not a Christ follower, come and experience what a Christ centered life looks and feels like today.
All glory to God!
