Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Thought of the day—

The central and supreme mark in a spiritually healthy Christian and church will be their Christ-centeredness. Jesus will be the center of everything, all the time. He will direct the lives of the Christian and church. He will shape the desires of the heart in the Christian and church. He will set the priorities in the Christian and church. And the way this will be affirmed as true in the Christian and church is that both will be holy and praying. A Christ-centered Christian will be separated from the world; separated to holiness and living in the realm of prayer. A Christ-centered church will also be separated from the world and will ensure all its efforts to reach the world and feed God’s people will be done by His ways which are the preaching of His Word and fervent prayer led by His Word” (Colossians 1:15-20).
