How are you looking at the world as of late?
There are many perspectives out there: straight up negative and positive, humanistically, environmentally, economically, sarcastically, maybe through the googles of conspiracy, in an “I don’t care” kind of way, or maybe from a Biblical standpoint. We are all looking at the world’s plight from some sort of direction that will be very telling about our stance on faith and fortitude.
The world has been in pain since its fall. We are ever fighting upstream, groaning in childbirth, praying for reprieve, and standing on the edge of what we think is morally acceptable. No matter how easy going, pliable or unmovable we are, there is an end goal for all and it’s a tough climb no matter how much of a nay-sayer one may be.
As a Christian, what do you think our response should be to the birthing pains of the Godly kingdom? Are we to sit back and allow for the lost to crumble beneath our feet? Should we stand by and watch the defeated fall into the abyss? If self-focus our main goal by which we extend outward when we’re comfortable enough, educated enough, or desperate enough?
Colossians 3:2 ESV
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
When we steady our focus on the things of God, He molds us and refines us so that our self-centered attitudes become kingdom focused.
This should be a constant pursuit for a Christian. Our focus should be on things of Heaven so that we can live on earth in light of the Lord’s goodness. When our perspective is correct, we won’t be looking at the world through the lens of self, but through the lens of Christ. When we see the world in love, we can move forward in living for truth and sharing the very same.Our focus should be on things of Heaven so that we can live on earth in light of the Lord's goodness.
