BIBLE STUDY NOTES

24.10.2020 A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW

“The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good” Proverbs 15:3

Worldview:

Definition:

1. The overall perspective from which one sees and interprets the world.

2. A collection of beliefs about life and the universe held by an individual or a group. In both senses also called Weltanschauung (a comprehensive conception or image of the universe and of humanity’s relation to it).

Every human being has a world view – a perspective about life, about God, about the universe, about our place in the universe.

As Christians we are called to have a Christian world view based on God’s revelation to us in Holy Scripture. This is called the Biblical worldview.

In a world that is confused and in despair, we are called to know what we believe, to know Whom we have believed and to live transformed lives by the power of the Spirit.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2

We are called to have a Christian mind and a Christian worldview that we can share boldly and kindly to those who are lost in unbelief and ignorance.

Thought for the Week

OBEDIENCE

No strength of nature can suffice
To serve the LORD aright;
And what she has, she misapplies,
For want of clearer light.

How long beneath the law I lay
In bondage and distress!
I toiled the precept to obey,
But toiled without success.

Then to abstain from outward sin
Was more than I could do;
Now, if I feel its power within,
I feel I hate it too.

Then all my servile works were done
A righteousness to raise;
Now, freely chosen in the Son,
I freely choose his ways.

‘What shall I do?’ was then the word,
That I may worthier grow?
‘What shall I render to the LORD?’
Is my enquiry now.

To see the Law by CHRIST fulfilled,
And hear his pardoning voice;
Changes a slave into a child,
And duty into choice.

William Cowper
