HOW DO YOU VIEW THE WORLD?

Christian worldview refers to the framework of ideas and beliefs through which a Christian individual, group, or culture interprets the world and interacts with it. We often respond to life and its issues largely according to our worldview. Some people are more (or less) consciously aware of their own worldview than others.

Christians, especially those in the workplace, are called to have a worldview. God has one. In fact, He called everything about the world good when He made it:

“God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.” (Genesis 1:31, NIV)

And, He loves it so much that He sent his only Son, Jesus Christ, to rescue it from the horrible consequences of a worldview that disregards His values:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3: 16, NIV).

There is good reason for concern that the Christian worldview is not as strong as it should be. Our “fast-paced lifestyles”, competing demands, ungodly influences, and our tendency to trust ourselves and technology to solve our problems, draw attention away from our Savior.

The act of working is meant to strengthen us in our Christian worldview. We work nearly all of our waking hours doing something, whether paid or unpaid, inside or outside of a designated workplace. All these activities need to be given over to God. How? By simply inviting Him into our lives.

As we invite God into our lives, we discover why He wants us and needs us to be godly influences; we realize the desirability of His value system; we experience Him using our work to train us in godliness and helping others. In short, working for Him will alert us to the reality and desirability of a more positive Christian worldview.

Enjoy your Friday, “Working for Christ”!
