THE GOD CENTERED MAN
In Romans 11, Paul seems to be overwhelmed with the goodness and greatness of God. “Oh the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!” Vs33. For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen. Vs.36.
The heavenly man becomes a God centered man. Our interests in Him have gone far beyond what He can and will do for us in this life. We have been captured by His greatness. We have been stunned by His beauty. We have been humbled by His grace. We have been awed by His wisdom. Paul is describing the God centered life that flows from a God encounter. Paul’s spiritual life began from his encounter with the Lord on the Damascus Road. He saw a light that was brighter than the noon day sun. This light opened his blind spiritual eyes, and the same light, closed his natural eyes for three days. I will never forget the day I was visited by the Lord on a Tuesday afternoon in Dallas, Texas. Hands were laid upon my head in a prayer line, unexpectedly I found myself caught up in His wonderful love. I was overcome by His Presence and a whole new world opened up for me. That day, I got a touch of what Paul describes in Acts 9. From Him and through Him and to Him are all things!!!! From that day, Christ became the center of my world. Drinking in His Goodness became my passion in life. Have you experienced Christ for yourself? Are you experiencing Him in your life? I beseech you, I beg you, be transformed, become that heavenly man, leaving behind earthly things. Start today! Spend some time reading His Word . Spend some time listening to worship and entering in to worship yourself. Pray in the Spirit. The Lord has a heavenly plan and I think you have a part to play in it. That plan begins to unfold in you as you step over into His Presence. From that time, Christ becomes the center of your world.
