When Christ is at the center

Ironically, when we live as if our personal story is at the center of our universe, we struggle to find meaning and significance. But when Christ is at the center and we are pushed to the periphery, it is then — in that place of seeming obscurity and insignificance — that we find true worth and value, by giving glory to the crucified and risen King with whom we can become united through faith.
