It’s common for Christians and Christian leaders to talk about their priorities. Usually they list it something like:
- Relationship with Jesus.
While this approach is surely well-intentioned, I think there’s a better way.
Rather than seeing Jesus as the top priority, picture him as the hub of the wheel of your life.
Jesus is the hub. The other things are spokes. Everything connects to your relationship to him.
This way, Jesus is at the center of your:
- family, informing how you spend your time, invest your money, use your tongue, and make memories.
- friendships, reshaping how you encourage, challenge and enjoy one another.
- work, infiltrating even the most mundane aspects of life and invigorating some of the most exciting ones.
- church involvement, freeing you to give, serve, participate and love out of joy instead of obligation.
At Redemption Church, we say it this way: all of life is all for Jesus.
Jesus isn’t just the top priority, he’s the hub of the wheel of your life.
