This Christmas season reminds us of the many promises of God. The promise that God Himself will appear in human flesh was realized when Jesus was born that starry night. The beautiful Immanuel “God is with us.” No matter what you may be enduring, Jesus is with you! This is God’s promise to all believers.
In a culture where the tide is constantly changing, how do followers of Christ view the current affairs of the world we live in? The Apostle Paul encourages, “And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:1-2 NLT).
Our view (followers of Jesus Christ), is to embrace a biblical worldview. The question I have for you is, “Do your views, ideas, and philosophies align with the Bible, or do the reflect what we are seeing in society?” As Paul said, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world.” The blessing of having a biblical worldview translates, “Then you will learn to know God’s will for you . . .”
Jesus invested in people. The largest contribution He made toward people was when He died on the cross. The dividends continue to benefit countless people who embrace Him as Lord and Savior.
