    The Seedbed Daily Text, August 28, 2022

    Realizing that you are not the center of the universe and that everything is not about you is the first step in sanctification and spiritual maturity. Accepting Christ as Savior does not require us to do this. However, being His Disciple does. That is why I say you can be a Christian and not be a Disciple. Many know Him as Savior but don’t know Him as Lord. Being a Disciple means you are Christ Centered not Self Centered. You have died to self and your life is hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3).

    The challenge for me is that this is not a one time and done proposition like being born again and saved. Sanctification is a daily struggle to abide and keep Christ at the center of our life. Every time I let myself become the center it leads to disorder and destructive behavior. The only way I know to keep Christ at the Center is to faithfully practice the Spiritual Disciplines and to have the fellowship and the accountability of others. Lord let it be so with me!
