An Amazing Life – God as the Center
This Sunday Pastor Cory kicked off our new series An Amazing Life. He explained that we are invited to live a profound life centered and rooted in Christ. Often times God serves as the means to an end in our lives (i.e. we need God to have a better marriage; we need God for a successful career). Though this may be true, Pastor Cory challenged us to make God the center of our lives, so that all we do flows from Him.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. -Ephesians 1:3-8 (ESV)
