Self-centeredness is the greatest enemy of spiritual life. All is not well so long as the center of your personality is occupied by that little god. It’s too little to be your god. It can’t occupy the throne. The throne is for him who died in love for you–I mean God in Jesus Christ. when self is on the throne, it is conspicuously out of place. It is too weak to meet your needs, too small to satisfy your hunger, too dry to quench your thirst.  Revival begins by putting a line through the I which at the center and turning it into a cross. (Festo KivengereWhen God Moves in Revival, 11).
