But Where's Christ?

Now I am sure that most everyone (all three people) who read this blog know who he is, so I won't go into his history. But I have heard people talk about how they have had the chance to meet him and talk with him, and they make a big deal of it. I have nothing against him, in fact I have a lot of respect for him. The thing that I really like about him is that he listened to what the Holy Triune was telling him. Sure it took him a while to listen, but he heard the calling of Love and is now happily married and with a child that was born out of Love, but he and his wife are living a Christ Centered Life from what I know. But meeting and/or talking with him seems to be a big thing for people to talk about.

It seems as though it seems as though people are coming out knowing the theology of the Bible is more important than Living In Christ. People are coming out knowing how to "Talk The Talk", but not "Walking The Walk". Now this is not true with everyone who goes through a seminary comes out this way, but it seems as though so many do. Christ didn't just talk about the Old Testament, but Lived it. The Seminaries need to start producing more and more people who are leaving as being examples of what it means to Live in Christ. Yes the importance of the theology is something that they need to know, but people need to be living examples of being Christians.
I sit in a congregation where almost every week it seems as though the sermon has nothing to do with the lessons that are read. It seems to be a lot of "I did this", "I did that", which comes across as "See how important I am and all of my greatness", and I hear it at times at other churches that I go to. Yes one should use one self at times during a sermon, but now when one has to mention self over and over again in a sermon, it becomes boasting, which is something that the Bible speaks against.
But what do I think that we need to do? I think that we need to get away from the Theology of the Bible and start Living it. We need to start going out and evangelizing and being an example to others as to the greatness that Christ brings to us. We need to go out and not only feed and help those that we can see are hungry and poor, but we need to also need to go out and help those who are also hungry in Spirit. We need to start basing our life around Christ, not just a theology about Christ.
So what are you doing in your life to make sure that the Holy Trinity is at it's center?
