Philippians 3:12-14

Successful corporations, educational institutions, and other organizations are gathered around at least one Organizing Principle.  This principle gives direction to activities, decisions and goals.  When times get tough or when stress is high, this principle gives guidance and provides stability.

When being formed as disciples who live in the Way of Jesus Christ, the call of God in Christ Jesus becomes our Organizing Principle.  We orient our lives around Jesus Christ.  Our family, career, finances, and relationships reflect this Organizing Principle.  Is this too much to ask of Christian disciples?

Prayer Thought:  Is Jesus Christ my Organizing Principle?  How much is Jesus Christ the center of my life and my church?  Ask God to help you orient your entire life more around Christ.
