Picking up on my daughter’s post yesterday, Jesus holds the center of our lives. Therefore, we must not try to substitute other Saviors. Tim Keller observes this:
“If we are deeply moved by the sight of his love for us, it detaches our hearts from other would-be saviors. We stop trying to redeem ourselves through our pursuits and relationships, because we are already redeemed. We stop trying to make others into saviors, because we have a Savior.”
– Timothy Keller, Counterfeit Gods (New York, NY: Penguin Group, 2009), 45.
