Who Is Your Life
 
“When Christ, who is your life … ”
Colossians 3:4
 
William Ernest Henley wrote in his poem, “Invictus”:
 
“I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.”

Our wayward self always wants to control our own life, but following Jesus means that you give Him control. He calls the shots. The sign hanging on the door of your life reads: “Under new management.”

You were designed for the purpose of knowing Jesus Christ and making Him the center of your life. You may ask, “What do you mean, make Jesus the center of my life?” It means you acknowledge Jesus as the ultimate authority in your life, and you voluntarily yield the control of your life to Him. You no longer desire to independently run your own life, but you surrender your whole self to Jesus, and to following His lead. But, why should you allow Jesus to be the center and leader of your life? 


First, Jesus created you and ultimately all things are under His rule — including you: “And he [Jesus] is before all things, and in him all things hold together. … He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent,” Colossians 1:17-18

Second, Jesus controls everything. Timothy calls Jesus the, “blessed controller of all things.” 1 Timothy 6:15 

Third, Jesus is faithful. Paul says, “But the Lord is faithful; He will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3


Today, let Jesus be your captain.
