Christocentric is a term we use often, but can sometimes be misunderstood. What does it mean? Why do we use it so often? What is its importance?
The term Christocentric is precisely what it sounds like, Christ-centered. Everything we should be striving to do as believers should be centered on Christ. This is not as easy as it sounds and takes more than just a desire to see it happen. It comes from discipleship and a renewed mind from the Spirit. It is vitally important however as it is a crucial step in keeping our theology, philosophy, & methodology Biblically sound and our witness unhindered.
1 Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.
1 Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, 2 keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.
