Is Jesus the Centre of Your Universe?

IS Jesus the centre of your universe?

Is He your defining principle, your main identity, your reason for living, what gets you out of the bed in the morning, your constant daydream, your every fantasy.

Is He your Lord, Savior and Treasure?

Because Jesus IS

…the centre of the universe.

Jesus IS the word of the power of God by which God spoke all things into being.

Jesus IS the radiance of God’s glory… The warmth and presence of God that extends from the source to manifest worlds, and God incarnate breaking into this world.

Jesus IS why this world was made, as all things were from Him and to Him and for Him.

Jesus IS the logos, the divine animating principle behind the world.

Jesus IS joy everlasting, peace beyond understanding, because of His righteousness imputed to sinners.

He is.

He is…

He IS!

Jesus IS the one who said believe in me, come to me, follow me, sell everything and die for me, for in me is life.

He IS the way
He is THE truth
He is the LIFE

So if He is not the centre of my universe…

Then I am living in my own universe…

John 18:6

What on Earth is the Point of it All? – An Apology

Praise God for correction. I need to apologize for recent post, that had a title that went a little too far. In wanting the shock factor, I think I definitely strayed into Romans 14:13 territory, and probably a little farther. I am so thankful for co-laborers to come along side and gently commend and correct. This dear friend preferred to remain to nameless, but his point was this:

My small point is that you do yourself and the Truth a disservice and provide an unnecessary distraction by using language considered profane. You gain nothing and probably lose some respect for the amazing Truth of the Glorious Gospel of Christ. … Our “cursing” is not in the language of the Bible. Hell is a serious Biblical topic. Society uses the same word as a profanity. – A very wise friend

Absolutely right. I appreciate this correction and can confirm that something didn’t feel quite right in my conscience when typing those words. The ultimate purpose of our words should be to glorify THE Word which this post was all about, so I want to ask my readers for forgiveness.

I will repost this here, under a new title:

What the Hell is the Point of it All?

UPDATED – Please see the repost of this entry.

Ok, so I guess I am back to using provocative titles to get people to read my posts. I think I’m ok with with that… you’re reading this aren’t you? Ok let’s go…

In the beginning was the logos… – John 1:1

We all know there is so much more to this passage, but let’s just stop here for a second. What does this mean? Well this text goes on to explain that the Logos was the historical person Jesus Christ.

So what does this mean? Why the word logos?
