The Centrality of Christ (2)

I stumble upon the writing of Oswald Chambers, (Go to May 6, 2014)

“A spiritually-minded person will never come to you with the demand—”Believe this and that”; a spiritually-minded person will demand that you align your life with the standards of Jesus. We are not asked to believe the Bible, but to believe the One whom the Bible reveals (see John 5:39-40). We are called to present liberty for the conscience of others, not to bring them liberty for their thoughts and opinions.”

What an insight! This is what my thought on the centrality of Christ all about. Our interpretation of the Bible, cultural upbringing, political views, doctrinal views… can be all put aside if we can focus on Christ and Christ alone. The Bible is a record of God’s interaction with the human race. It can never represent God and all His being. Even the Bible admitted that. (John 21: 25)
