Self Centered Life

Human Beings

Journey into LifeHuman beings have a deep inclination towards a self centered life. I sin when I do what I want. The Bible says in Isaiah 53.6, "We have turned every one to his own way." Doing what I want is the cause of all trouble, unhappiness and quarrels. Sin is not just killing, stealing, or telling lies. I sin when I live a selfish life rather than a life given to God. I sin when I can't be bothered with God or with other people, when I say, "I'm my own boss, it's my life, I can do what I like with it." This is SIN - I in the middle, me first. I sin when I do not love God with all my heart.

Becoming God Centered

People TalkingJesus said in Matthew 22.37-38, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment." Not one of us has loved God like this. We have all broken the great commandment. We are all naturally self centered rather than God centered.
