Sounds like it’s all about you …

If you took a year’s worth of sermons from many (most?) churches these days and review the contents, it would sound like life is all about you.

At least you could get that idea from how so many sermons are more about how to make your life happier and “better” than it is about following Christ. You would almost think Jesus exists for us rather than the other way around.

But the reality is, it is the other way around …

“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see — such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him,” Colossians 1:15-16.

But this focus on making it all about us doesn’t take much arm twisting from us. How much of your thought life, emotions, actions, desires, dreams, interests — how much of what you are passionate about — centers squarely on Jesus Christ, or loving and serving others in His name?

At this moment, who is your life all about?
