Unlimited: Keep Christ Central in Your Life
Feb 28, 2022 851
And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment (John 16:8, NASB).
If we don’t understand our world and the reasons for its moral chaos, then we are like a boxer forced to fight with his eyes bandaged. Our world is very sick with an exceedingly contagious illness.
In a single word, the Bible, gives the reason for our dilemma: sin. But if you search modern books or magazines, it is quite unlikely you will come across that word. There’s also another missing word: God.
A century and a half ago, Charles Darwin wrote his Origin of the Species, which became the bible for evolutionists in every country of the world. The key idea of this influential book is chance – believing that all things arrived through luck, and not by the word of God.
Darwin robbed humanity of hope, the basic staple of existence. Nobody believes in Utopia any more.
The key challenge is to keep Christ central in your life.
By dismissing God, sin, Christ, the Bible, hope and meaning, the doctrine of organic evolution leaves humanity lost and hopeless.
The main reason for rejecting Darwinism is that in dismissing Genesis we lose the doctrine of the Fall. If man is not spiritually lost, he does not need a Saviour. If Christ becomes irrelevant, then Christianity itself is dissolved.
The key challenge in every person’s life is to keep Christ central in their lives. – Des Ford (adapted)
Reflection: Is Jesus Christ, his sacrifice, his example, and his kingdom, central to every decision you make every day? If not, why not? What can you change in your daily routine to help keep Christ central in your life?
