Hello Reader Friends! David here. Today I’d like to talk about our Christian worldview. I have often been overwhelmed by how I could possibly make a difference in the world as just one person. But as I’ve grown in Christ, I’ve learned that my vision for changed hearts and lives around me begins with my view of God moving in this troubled world.
How Big is God to You?
One of God’s attributes is His sovereignty. When you pray for others, for their salvation and safety, you are appealing to God’s sovereignty, and His care for each soul. If your worldview lacks a caring, Sovereign God, you may find the world a daunting, hopeless, unchanging place. This is not a healthy or accurate worldview (for the Christian).
As I often write about persecution against Christians around the world, it is my belief in God’s sovereign care of His creatures that allows me to view with hope the good that can emerge from any terrible situation. The God of the Bible is a caring God.
Q1 – Do you see God interacting on a daily basis in your life and in others around the world?
Q2 – Do you see God’s purpose being achieved as He works miraculously through His Word and through His people?
Q3 – Do you see Jesus Christ as the only (seriously, the only) answer to sin, hell, and suffering?
If you can answer YES to the above three questions, then you have a Christian worldview.
Having a Christian worldview will keep you seeking God’s good purpose in every heartache, and seeing the glory of Jesus Christ pouring down blessing through every storm.
Don’t be overwhelmed by the world of sin and despair. View the world through God’s eyes, and you’ll see the potential, the possibilities, and the hope that occurs daily. Let God move your mind from the worldly realm of prosperity, to the kingdom realm of spiritual richness in a relationship with Him!
See you in the field!
