Me, My, Mine!
By melanie jean juneau on July 15, 2014
I was shocked when I discovered that I functioned as if I was the centre of the universe.
Shocked because I really did not grasp that my whole paradigm was skewed.
Shocked because I thought I had given my life to God.
Shocked to understand just how much inner transformation it takes to say with St. Paul, ” No longer I that lives but Christ that lives in me.”
Until we allow our false selves, our egos to die, we view the world through our eyes with events and other people revolving around ourselves as the centre. Only surrendering that false self to Christ on the cross can free us from this prison of selfish isolation and plug us into the Mystical Body of Christ. Then we are free to simply be children of God as we gather with others to worship Christ at the centre of all life.
I do not make Christ only the center of my life because Christ isn’t merely the centre according to St. Paul, He is my life!
Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
