Living the Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney
What keeps the Christian’s perspective on target for eternity? The cross. The cross-centered life is the one paradigm that will keep Christians focused on the freedom that exists in this bondage-wrecking world. The very essence of faith is the cross of Christ. It sets us free from bondage of a normal life to living a supernatural life, even one living on earth. Several times he addresses three things that rob the Christian from joy: Subjectivism; Legalism and Condemnation. Each of these pulls the Christian from the cross and takes His joy away. He writes, “We never move on from the cross, only into a more profound understanding of the cross.” I also appreciate his discussion on “feelings.” He writes, “We allow our feelings to guide our thinking, and we shouldn’t…that should be left to God’s Word alone.” This direct, easy to read volume will get you back on track to a simple pure devotion to Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 11:3).
