It is possible to have an earnest, sunny & genuine faith that completely revolves around you — it’s all about how much Jesus loves you, how Jesus died for you. And while it’s true that Jesus did die for you, you and I are supposed to live for others.
We often think of Christians as moral, upright, nice people. What does it mean to be a Christian? Being a Christian means being a good person, a nice person. This is, at best, a very incomplete understanding of what it means to live for Jesus. A better image would be to see the follower of Jesus as a person who is always thinking of other people before they think of themselves.
Sadly, this aspect of living the Christian life is very often given short shrift when we talk about what it means to live the Christian life.
