Topic – Jesus: Centre of Our Life [24/9/2016]
Text: Colossians 1:16
Jesus is the centre of all that there is in this life. Scriptures say "all things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" (John 1:3). He is the Originator of all things. There is nothing that is in existence and that will be in existence that does not have its bearing in Jesus. If Jesus is the centre of all things, that is, from Him all things spring forth, then it is important that we make Him the centre of our lives.
It's easy to say "I believe" in Jesus but one question we must answer is: how much influence does Jesus have in our lives? Every decision that we make, every move that we take, how much of His influence is in them? That's what it means to make Jesus the centre of your life. Colossians 1:17 says: "and he is before all things, and by him all things consist." All things consist round Him, and so also should be our lives. It should revolve round and find its pivot on Jesus.
Make Jesus the centre of your life. Life becomes meaningful and purposeful when Jesus' influence is the overriding factor of your life. Even in the Godhead, Jesus is at the centre, and He is the Poster Boy of the Godhead, "for in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." (Colossians 2:9) Make Jesus the Poster Boy of your life. Let Him have the overriding influence of all that goes on in your life, and I can bet that you will be glad you did.
Keep winning daily.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for Your love me. Today, I make a decision to make You the centre of my life, to be influenced solely by You in all my decisions and actions always, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
