In the Torah (The first five books of the Bible), we read the story of a man whom God used mightily for himself and to accomplish his will. It took this man 80 years for him to realize that God wants to be first. As this man received the LAW from God on Mt. Sinai, the first Law read,” You shall have no other God before me.” This reflects God’s position that as creator, he is to be first. As God revealed himself in the gospels, he taught his disciples to seek first the Kingdom of God and to follow Jesus. The Centrality of Christ is reflected in that as he was God, then he must be the center of the Universe and in the center of our lives. This is the journey for every person. They will decide whether they will make Christ the center of his life.
In many parts of religion today, Jesus Christ is acknowledged as a man who lived and had nice teachings. Some seek to deny he ever lived but most acknowledged he did live. However, the most critical conviction that is essential in the teaching of the Bible is the deity and centrality of Christ. What Scripture can help us here?
