“Living the Cross Centered Life” – C.J. Mahaney

Just finished reading this remarkable book. What I loved about it was how practical it was, yet it wasn’t simply ‘self-help’. It was the Gospel. C.J. tells us to view every area of our lives through the lens of the Gospel. Easy to read and extremely challenging.

I wanted to leave you with his 5 points for living a Cross-centered day. As he writes, “A cross-centered life is made up of cross-centered days.”

  1. Memorize the Gospel
  2. Pray the Gospel
  3. Sing the Gospel
  4. Review How the Gospel Has Changed You
  5. Study the Gospel

Every day we need to preach the Gospel to ourselves. In all reality, this may be the most important thing we do.
