The crane sits in the middle of the one-square-block site and the boom can reach all four corners of the construction area. There is no place on the site that the boom cannot assist in the construction process. Our relationship with Christ is a lot like that. If we place Christ in the center of our lives, there is no corner of our life that He is unable to provide us with the help we need to live our lives well. Like the mighty crane Christ can lift the burdens that are too heavy for us to bear and give us the strength and courage to build our lives according to His will. The crane will remain in the center of the construction site until the job is complete. Like the crane Christ will remain in the center of the life of His bride (the church) until the construction is complete and He come to take us home. All of us need a crane in our life it's just that many of us are not willing to allow the crane to dominate the center of our life.
