Shaping a biblical worldview


Ephesians 4:22-24

In verse 23, Paul speaks of being "made new in the attitude of your minds". This transformation of your thinking process is what establishing a biblical worldview is all about. On the Day of Pentecost, when the believers responded to Peter's message, they began an active commitment to four things. In these four things we see the elements that shape a biblical worldview.

Acts 2:42-47

Those first believers "devoted themselves" to:

The Apostles' teaching - They consistently came under the instruction of God's Word. To them, the apostles' teaching was something much more than just a sermon to be heard. It was something that multiplied through their lives to touch others around them - a Word not just taught but also expressed in power.

Fellowship - They consistently met together in fellowship and worship. To them, fellowship was much more than just "getting together". It was a common concern expressed also in practical acts of giving and sacrifice.

The breaking of bread - They consistently applied the terms of the new covenant to family life. To them, the breaking of bread was much more than just having Communion on a Sunday. The "breaking of bread" was done "in their homes".
This double level of church life - meeting together as a church and meeting from house to house - is seen right throughout the book of Acts.

Prayer - They consistently met together for prayer. To them, prayer was not a separate activity or meeting, but a daily lifestyle connected to their mission to evangelise the world. Prayer is what brings a Christian into contact with the heartbeat of God for our generation.

These four activities, consistently applied to your life will shape it into a biblical worldview. Through regular exposure and participation in biblical teaching, fellowship, the breaking of bread and prayer, God will align your thinking and lifestyle to his Word.
You will then begin to see life from God's perspective - seeing your life through God's eyes, so to speak. This is what it means to have a biblical worldview.

Heavenly Father, we pray that you would align, our thoughts, words and actions so that they would reflect Your priorities and the principles of Your Word.
Amen.
