Centered In God


Worship is a meeting
at the center so that
our lives are centered in God
and not lived eccentrically.

–Eugene Peterson‏

Belonging to Jesus Christ

When you most belong to Him, you most belong to yourself. Lowest at His feet you stand straightest before everything else. Bound to Him you walk the earth free. Fearing Him you are afraid of nothing else. You bow to Him, but you do not bow to anything else. You are God’s freeman, for you are God’s slave. The strongest persons are those most surrendered to themselves. This works with a mathematical precision, and there are no exceptions. If you are centered in yourself, you are a problem—if you are centered in God, you are a person.

–E. Stanley Jones (1884–1973)
