Today, I learned something new in the church. It’s all about making God the Center of our life. This is an aspect of my Christian Life which I have taken for granted. It is not enough for us to just serve God, go to church, praise God, read the Bible and pray everybody. Just because you are all doing these stuffs doesn’t mean God is already the center of your life.
We mean it or not, we focus most of our time in our daily lives on our tasks, activities, etc. Our attentions are being diverted to worldly things. Pastor Jay Cruz of Davao City Alliance Gospel Church has itemized the following important things we should consider if you want to put God at the center of your life.
1. Decide that God will be the ruler of your life by following his standards
It’s easy to say that God is the ruler of your life. In church, we can hear it from almost anybody. It’s just that easy, but it is difficult to manifest in your life. What kind of standard you are following to live your life? If you really want to live your life with peace of mind, follow God’s standard and let him rule. You will know that God rules your life if you always prioritize him above any other things. Remember his words in Matthew which says “seek ye first thy kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you”. Let him rule your life and you will get the kind of life that you deserve.
2. Obey wholeheartedly the command of God
Along with allowing God to be the ruler of our life, obeying God is a must. We know the story of Jonah, the Bible tells us to listen and obey God’s commandment, if not, there are always consequences.
3. Love the Lord with your whole being
By whole being we mean not only the spiritual aspect. This involves all our aspects. From physical, to emotional and everything. If you love God with your whole being, nothing will go wrong in your life.
We always complain to God why our life sucks, but the question is, did you allow Him to at least manage your life? If you want to get the life that you want, let Him rule over your life.
God Bless brethren.
