God Centered Life

29 Mar

We live in an age when men seek praise from fellow man in everything. Churches are dwindling in attendance because there is no longer a fulfilling of understanding nor a promotion of knowledge toward and about God. Worship has come to mean a show for man of how good a Christian I am and not a recognition of the master for what His plan is for my life.

Christian Faith is one of believing our Lord and Savior in all things. Taking what God says is the baseline for our life and accepting everything in His word.  To come to that fullness of understanding requires a humbling of one’s self to the submission of one’s soul to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

In 1 Corinthians 1: 18,21,23,25 God shows us that His word is incompatible with world wisdom and that preaching of God’s Wisdom is a necessity to the power of God and coming to faith.

This then is a God centered life, the opening up of yourself to His Truth that the seekers of glory in the world call foolishness.

 1Corinthians 1

  • [18] For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
  • [21] For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
  • [23] But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
  • [25] Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
