From The Centre Comes Your Drive

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (Matthew 5:5-6)

There’s something to be said about desire.

When you are the centre of your universe the desire is what is pleasing to yourself. Unsurprisingly a lot of life in the world we live in is how to please yourself. The mentality is surrounded by putting yourself at the centre of the universe.

What is so different about being in Christ is that He allows you to understand that it’s worth putting something of far greater worth at the centre of the universe. When the Creator is in His rightful place in the universe there a recognition of spiritual poverty and the rightful morning at the loss that comes from the displacement of the true centre of the universe.

There is a lot more to it that that in the definition of your identity. Once there’s a recognition of these things is there a promotion of the Creator as also the Ruler? Is there an acknowledgement that rather than defining life by ourselves, we allow ourselves to be defined by this Creator who has made us in His image? To do so requires an understanding that we are under His control rather than being the ones in control – is that promoted as part of the new nature of the Kingdom of Heaven?

Also is there a recognition in the light of that of a change in the appetite? Now a desire to do and more importantly be everything pleasing to the Creator and the Ruler who defines all things? Is there this desire to truly reflect the Creator and Ruler by seeing this rule in your life influence all life?

Oh, you were expecting me to answer the questions now?
