A Christian Worldview…

Posted: September 30, 2011 in Video Clips

When you become a Christian, you are born-again (John 3:3), brought from spiritual death to spiritual life (Eph 2:1-5) by receiving the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38) and are transformed into a totally new creation (2 Cor 5:17). Wow! We don’t “Ask Jesus into our heart” like we so often tell children; we are transformed into a completely different person! If you ask Jesus into your heart, you can also ask Him to leave. But if you are transformed, there is no going back.

In this clip, Neo is offered the truth. Becoming a Christian is like taking that red pill. All that we had once known is ripped away to reveal a reality we never knew existed. It is one we cannot just be told about—we must experience it. When you become a Christian, God doesn’t just save you from hell; He opens your eyes up to true reality. He changes your entire worldview (the lenses through which we interpret all reality and experience). Because of this, our relationship with Jesus affects everything!

Unfortunately, we often want to contain God to just certain areas of our lives. We are ok for him to occupy our religious or moral space, but we don’t want him interfering when we choose a college or a career or a spouse. Sadly, many Christians make everyday life decisions the very same as the world does. We try to confine God to our half-hearted “Jonny Appleseed” prayers before meals, but we don’t even consider Him when it comes to our finances.

What doors of your life have you kept locked from God? When you are born-again, God changes your entire worldview. That means you see everything differently! Now all areas of your life should be filtered through your relationship with Jesus. Why do we choose our careers based on worldly reasoning and not based on the Great Commission? It’s time we as Christians opened the doors of our life to God and let Him have access to everything. He requires nothing less.

“Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.”

    Now I can say that I’ve seen the “Matrix”…..at least 3 minutes and 54 seconds of it. Keep defending the faith in a clear and articulate way! Glen
