The Importance of a Biblical Worldview

One of the key components to thinking biblically and living out your life as a dedicated and committed Christian is the development of a Bible-based worldview. Your worldview, or the lens through which you view your world and everything in it, ultimately determines your choices about who God is, who you are and how you will live out your time here on earth.

In their book, Who is God? And Can I Really Know Him?, authors John Hay and David Webb point out that ‘when a particular worldview is held by a large number of people, it becomes highly influential, swaying many through media, entertainment, education, and corporate behavior.”

For Christians who are actively involved in missions and evangelism, it is very important that we understand the subject of worldview. The more widely held worldviews of the twenty-first century include Secular Humanism, Socialism, Marxism, New Age, Post-Modernism, Islam and Christianity.

As you interact with others it is important to assess their worldview so that you might be able to understand more about what they perceive to be true. This is another reason why we must be serious students of the emerging global village that is encompassing North America and the world. As Christians we are being faced with the critical questions of both How do we know the truth and in light of that truth, How must we live our lives in relation to that truth?

The truth that Jesus Christ is both Creator, Savior and Lord is foundational to the professing Christian. This is a point that the Bible clearly supports and that the Evangelist/Apologist must drive home to the unbeliever. We must remember as we go that God is Truth and that He reveals His truth to people. We must continue to pray that the Seed of the Word of God find fertile soil in the hearts of men and women and that the truth of Scripture which chronicles the Christ as the One who Was and Is and Is to Come be preached to the uttermost parts of the earth.

Psalm 126:5-6

Have you thought about the importance of the Word of God lately?  I mean the all encompassing necessary breadth of the importance of  God’s Word?  It occurs to me that God, the Father sent the Word to open the eyes of the blind and the ears of the deaf in order that men, women, boys and girls might be saved unto eternal life.  The Word is the Christian’s all in all; our Redeemer.  The Bread of Life.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

If those verses don’t make it clear enough, the Apostle John (under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit) writes this in verse 14:

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

My exhortation and prompt to you today is to Preach the Word of God. The evangelist is to Preach Christ and Him Crucified, Risen and the only Way to the Father.

1 Corinthians 2:2
King James Version (KJV)
2 “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

We here at Evangelize4Life Missions Corp. want to help you be ready to give an answer and to go forth bringing men from death to life. We do this by publishing this blog, teaching on our daily radio talk program

1 Corinthians 15:3-4   (KJV)  “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

Be Blessed,

Preach The Word!

 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126:5-6

Are you faithfully doing the work of an evangelist?  The Word of God is clear that we, as Christian Believers ought to be involved in the ministry of evangelism as a way of life.  Jesus taught this principle in the book of Matthew.  Let’s look at the parable of the Sower found in chapter 13.

It should be noted that through this teaching we are to grasp that Christ is both the  Sower and Seed.  In addition, Christ is teaching that we ought to be preaching the same message that He did.  We are to then Preach The Gospel; Tell Men.   How they respond depends upon the condition of their heart.  Remember that all men have the potential to receive the seed of the word.  As John MacArthur has rightly preached, “Dirt is dirt.” Read more of this post

We’re Live

As of May 2012 we have so many changes and updates to report.  First of all we want to thank all you who have been praying for our family and Steven’s ministry as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  If you have ever been involved in full-time ministry (or even if you have not) as Christians we can all to attest to the truth of Jesus’ statement: John 16:33
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the worldye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”  Thanks for your prayers and thank you for sticking by our commitment to glorify God in Christ through the power of His Holy Spirit.

Steven has been blessed to be able to begin an evangelism training class for men who are interested in learning to be more effective in their witnessing. Read more of this post
