It's Not about Me

There really is more to this life that you’ve been told.
We’ve been demanding our way since day one…
I want a spouse that makes me happy and co-workers that always ask my opinion.”
I want weather that suits me and traffic that helps me and a government that serves me.”
Self-promotion, self-preservation, self-centeredness…
“It’s all about me.”

They all told us it was, didn’t they? And we took them up on it. We thought self-celebration would make us happy…
But believing that has created chaos – noisy homes, stress-filled business, and cutthroat relationships. We’ve chased so many skinny rabbits, says Max Lucado, that we’ve missed the fat one: the God-centered life.
[Paperback review from Max Lucado’s It’s not about Me]

Yes, we have missed the fat rabbit: the God-centered life. Today, the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been slowly replaced by the Me Gospel. Slowly… the Sunday message is no more about what God have done for us, but what we have achieve in our life. The Christian Gathering is no more about Jesus (though passionately sing “It’s all about Jesus”), but how we can manipulate God into our own self-happiness agenda and programs. Our prayer meeting is no more about communicating with God, but a place where we shut Him up and bombarded Him with our wish lists (which 95% about our own needs), thinking that he is a genie in the bottle.
How we have turned away from God to self! 
How we are deceiving and being deceived!

Hey! It’s not about you, it’s not about me – this life is about Jesus. And when we get it right with Him, when we ‘seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously...’ (Matthew 6:33NLT), when we life a God-centered life, we are truly living. You will find the purpose and the meaning of you life… after all; He is the God who created you. He knows what’s best for you… let Him be the center of your life – It's not about Me, It's about Jesus.

THINK BIG Think less about yourself… think God and others more often.
START SMALL Offer your life to God and by His grace, live a righteous life.
GO DEEP  Jesus said,"seek the Kingdom of God above all else,
and live righteously,
and he will give you everything you need
."
