that’s a pretty good question.
If our goal in life to glorify Christ, to love Him with all our heart, mind, soul, strength and to love our neighbour as ourself, then how can we make Him the center or our relationships.
Let’s start here: Christ is everything. If your faith is in Christ, and You believe He is Lord of all and that the universe revolves around the glorified Lamb who is all sufficient, all powerful, the personification of love and mercy, then you would agree that He is everything. That if you or I died right this second, it wouldn’t matter because we would be found in Christ and we would be with Him. And if we gained everything possible in this world, all the education, all the money, all the fame, all the ‘love’ and affirmation by other humans, that Christ would still be better than all of that.
When you begin with Christ’s everythingness, you can begin to see how to revolve your life and your relationships around Him. That when He is not just first, but everything, then you can function, then you can have fuller joy.
“Christ is most glorified when we are most satisfied in Him.” - John Piper
A Christ Centered relationship involves devos - individually, then sharing what you learn with each other. It involves prayer alone and together for all things, it involves affirmation, encouragement, affection in a brotherly-sisterly-bestfriend kind of way. It involves two lives, two souls who know who Christ is what Christ has done, then live in such a way that glorifies Him - in what you say, how you act.
