Christ: The Center Of Our Affection.
By
Calvin J Moss


Galatians 2:20 says I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live yet not I but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live, I live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.

First John 4:19 states, we love him because he first loved us. Since Christ loved us, Christ is the center of our affection. Acts 17:28 mentions for in him we live and move and have our being. As we continue to reach out to God and serve him, we will move into a deeper level of intimacy. The salvation of our souls becomes more important than anything and anyone. We become fixated on the things of God. We begin to think, eat and drink Christ with the understanding that without Jesus we can do nothing.

As we delight ourselves in the Lord his desires become our desire. We put on the Lord Jesus Christ even the mind of Christ. This world is no longer our home and we set our sight on an eternal kingdom. We distance ourselves from the world knowing that the world has nothing in Christ. Jesus commands us to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, mind, soul and all thy strength. When Christ is the center of our affection, our worship is for real. I read in a booklet that when Christ is the center of our lives we worship but when he is not we worry. That was a powerful statement for me. As we place Christ at the center, we seek to please him and when we fall short, we get frustrated knowing that we do better.

Romans 8:35 declares, who shall separate us from the love of Christ? The love of Christ constraineth us. Through persecution, temptation and tribulation our house remains built on the Rock. Jesus Christ is the chief cornerstone of our faith. He is the author and finisher of it. Phillipians 1:21 says for to live is Christů As you read the Epistles you see that Jesus was truly the center of Paul`s life. The Apostle went through distresses, persecutions, stonings, beatings then finally beheaded for the name above all names. Are we as modern day Christians willing to suffer such things for the name of Jesus? The answer is yes if the love of Christ is in us.

The love of Christ has been shod across our hearts; and as we keep our mind on Christ, the peace of God that passeth all understanding shall keep us. Even though the pressures of this life sometimes cause heartaches, the center of our hearts is reserved for Jesus, a place that nothing and no one can touch. Amen.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
