At the Center of it All

Revelation 1 - 4

There’s someone sitting on a throne, and it isn’t me.  The one on the throne is described as brilliant.  The description is far more elaborate than that but it’s clear that it’s not me and it’s not you sitting there.  Here in the last book of the Bible, John pulls back the curtain for us and we see the One who has been at work since the very beginning of this whole story, sitting on a throne.  All the plot lines are converging on him.  John wants us to see that the plot and the point of the whole thing is Him.  The world is seen in its proper alignment when Christ is at the center and on his throne.  This is how the whole story and universe was always intended to be.  Romans 11:36 says 

everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.

For in him we live and move and exist. (Acts 17:28 NLT)

It all makes sense when the curtain is pulled back and we realize that he is the center of it all.  With him at the center, things are in their proper alignment

Today, we are called to surrender our usurped place at the center of our life, see him for who he is, and worship him. He is the One who has made a way for us to have life in him.  Jesus has been our example.  He stepped down from his rightful place at the center of it all and came into this world, to offer himself as a sacrifice for us.  He came for those of us who, whether we recognize it or not, are desperately out of alignment, lost, and exhausted. 

See Him.  In Jesus, God offers peace and power to live this life as we were always intended to live it -  in him, before him and for him.
