This past weekend, much was made over the proposed boycott of the NFL Football Games to protest the players taking a knee disrespecting the flag and our military. Personally, I believe public sporting events for which you are a highly paid player is the wrong forum to make political statements, but that is not where I am going with this. People focus on temporal things but seem to ignore spiritual things.
They zero in on this kind of thing but easily accept the abomination of abortion and acceptance of the homosexual agenda.
The world is so focused on things and issues, that is completely blocks out the spiritual, which has eternal consequences. It is as if Believers and non-believers live in two different dimensions that don’t even see each other. It’s kind of like a man drowning in the ocean, and worrying about the fact that it’s raining outside!
It is all about how we see the world. Through the flesh or through the eyes of faith! The world see’s our existence as the here and now. They may claim to believe in God, which is usually a god of their own making, but their lives and world view actually see the world as the extent of their lives. They feel, when they die, they hope there is something better, but they may as well get all they can out of this life now, at any cost.
The see the world like the man in Luke 12: 19-20; “And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”
But then, God gives him a dose of reality . . . “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?”
So when they look at the world, they focus on sports, politics, wealth, food, wine, having the best of everything . . . the things the “world” say’s make you something special. The truth is, that is only an illusion from the pit of Hell.
Believers are supposed to have a “Christian WorldView” and see our existence as temporary. Like the words to the old hymn said, “this world is not my home, I’m just a passin through“. We are supposed to view this world as just a stop on the journey to eternity in Heaven with the savior. We are supposed to view what the world has to offer as secondary to our true calling. But do we always?
It’s not hard to get caught up in the world’s thinking, and when we do, sometimes God has to bring us back to godly reality. We are living in prophetic times and Bible prophecy is being fulfilled all around us. Today, Believers need to get their priorities in order and be about the father’s business. That means seeing the world from a biblical perspective.
I am considering doing an Internet Radio Show that would integrate into Facebook live. The show would be called “Christian World View” and it would focus on the current events of the day from a biblical perspective. Please pray that God would be glorified in this outreach and open hearts.
