The gospel. Something that we tend to only focus on when we are saved and then we move on to studying and focusing on how WE can grow and how WE can benefit from our relationship with Christ.
This is a backward version of Christianity. It begins to revolve around us instead of God.
We begin to forget the amazing, life changing, power of the Gospel. We forget that Jesus’ love for us is supposed to continue to change us until the day we die.
The gospel should transform how we do life. The way we speak, dress and act. If it is not changing the way we live and view life then we need to be questioning the state of our relationship with Christ.
It confounds me that Christians cannot seem to talk about Christ in everyday conversations. Why does He not come up all of the time? It would seem to me that if he is not discussed, then it would seem that he is not the center of our lives. He is pushed to the side and we are not allowing Him to take control and guide our lives.

Your faith can no longer be your parents faith. You must take your faith and beliefs and own them. They must be yours. You must learn to be disciplined in the things of Christ and be striving to be holy. This should be our focus and goal.
