Follow The Way

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” ~ John 14:6

I heard a pastor say that we need to be more Holy Spirit-centered and less Christ-centered. He explained that the gifts are the gifts of the Spirit, not the gifts of Jesus, so therefore, if we want the gifts of the Spirit, we have to be Holy Spirit-filled. Here’s the thing, though: nothing is done in the name of the Spirit.

We have authority in Jesus’ name. We pray and receive in Jesus’ name. We enter the throne room of God because Jesus went first and made a way. We are saved by Christ. The Holy Spirit may be the source of the gift, but access to that source only comes through Jesus. Therefore, to be anything but Christ-centered would be to fall short. Without our focus being on Christ, then we can’t walk in step with the Spirit. We are the body of Christ. The body follows the head. The Spirit is what helps the body fulfill the head’s instructions.

Christ is our center. Christ is our head. Christ is our everything. Never let new teachings change your focus. If you want to see the power of the Holy Spirit move in your life, then keep your focus on Christ. For Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Follow The Way.
