Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
--2 Corinthians 5:17
Everyone has a worldview, whether they are aware of it or not. Your worldview is your basic belief system, the way you look at the world through the lens of your own mind and life. Your worldview is important because it determines both your attitude toward life and your actions in life.
It is that driving force behind everything we do—that thing inside of us that motivates us to follow a certain path in life and make the decisions we make, good or bad.
We can boil every worldview down into one of two basic categories: either Christ-centered or man-centered. If you are a Christian, then your view of life should be Christ-centered. This simply means that Christ is your sufficient and sovereign Lord in every area of life. This view places Christ at the center of every idea and decision.
But unfortunately, many people place themselves at the center of life. The man-centered view says that humans are basically good, capable of making it fine on their own, and therefore have no need for God.
What’s the driving force behind your life? How does your worldview impact the decisions you make and the actions you take every day? Those questions are worth thinking about. If you live with Christ at the center of your life, you will experience joy, peace, and fulfillment beyond your greatest imagination.
Make sure your worldview is centered on Christ.
OUR LIVES ARE EITHER CHRIST-CENTERED OR MAN-CENTERED. WHO IS THE CENTER OF YOUR WORLD?
