Without a vision–people get lost!
Greetings! How do we find our way in this world? Is it blind chance? Are there natural forces and laws that operate and bring about all that happens? Are we just a chance combination of chemicals that has resulted from years of time and chance? Were our ancestors apes or monkeys? Are we really much more developed than animals? Are our thoughts just the result of chemical reactions in our brains? Is there any real moral truth? If we were to listen to much of what our secular world is saying to us, these questions nag at us. Even as Christians, we sometimes have a very poor understanding of the answers to some basic questions concerning our identity, our purpose here, our ideas, values.
Many professing Christians live as though the moral values taught by the Bible were not true and absolute. They have many of the same attitudes and actions of the unsaved when they live among them day to day. There is a big gap between what the Bible teaches and the way Christians behave. Do they understand the Bible? Do they believe and know what God has said? Are our hearts set on God and His truth? These questions also come to me regularly.
As we trek through the Bible this year, I want to grasp God’s vision for mankind and for me in a new way. I believe that how we believe and think determines how we live. As a Christian, I should know who I am, where I came from, how I lost my vision of God and how to see Him clearly again! Let’s ask God for a fresh vision of the world. Our ‘worldview’ is one of the most important aspects of our life and determines how we live. In His Love, Pastor John
