A Gospel Centered Year
I know that we are just about past the time for posts like this, but please indulge me one last one. I promise that I won’t continue these beginning of the year type posts.
What kind of year do you want? Since most of you who grace me with coming to this blog follow Christ, I specifically mean what kind of year spiritually do you want.
Do you want your year to be worship centered?
How about fellowship centered?
What about prayer? Do you want prayer to be the center of your life this year?
Bible study? Reading the Bible through? Would that be the focus of the next few months?
All of these are wonderful ideas. I want all of these things to be part of it, but I want all of them to point to and derive their power from one thing.
I want the Gospel to be the center of my life this year.
Someone may want to get all over me about that. Perhaps they would challenge me and say that Christ should be the center.
I don’t disagree. I just happen to think that you can’t have a Gospel centered year without Christ being the center.
So this year, at the center of my life, I want the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be central to everything I do and think.
Will I succeed? The answer is in the future. I do know that If I don’t go fishing there is a good chance I won’t catch a fish. If I don’t make the effort there is a pretty good chance that I won’t succeed.
I want 2013 to be a gospel centered year.
What is going to be the center of 2013 for you?
