from Radical by David Platt

“The message of biblical Christianity is not “God loves me, period,” as if we were the object of our own faith. The message of biblical Christianity is “God loves me so that I might make him—his ways, his salvation, his glory, and his greatness—known among all nations.” Now God is the object of our faith, and Christianity centers around him. We are not the end of the gospel; God is.”

If the message of Christianity is God loves me…

that makes me the object of Christianity.

Then when I consider how to live, where to live, and what to do with my life I think only of me. But God must be center, not me.

Let’s consider what this may mean in our lives.

What do I need to change, so that God is center, not me?
