Christian World View

Sermon Overview
Scripture Passage: 1 Peter 3:10

As Bible-believing Christians, our world view affects everything in life. Yet, we are living in a post-Christian society, hostile toward those who view the world as we do. As a result, we may be tempted to retreat; but in reality, there is no place to hide. Rather, we have to come together, united in our Christian world view, and learn how to articulate it.

We recognize five principles of our world view in the Book of First Peter. This letter was essentially a handbook for survival for the early Christians in Rome. 1 Peter 3:15 says, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”

Lordship
Learning
Lowliness
Lifestyle
Love

We must make up our minds that nothing will stand in the way of obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Non-believers have some excellent questions; we must make a habit of learning all we can so we’re ready to give an account for what we believe and why.

The Bible teaches that we are to have a lifestyle of meekness. Meekness is not weakness; it is strength channeled and under control.

The early Christians possessed a hope, so real, vibrant and incontrovertible, that they stood out.

Our only chance against a world that badmouths and criticizes us is our ability to out-live, out-love and out-pray them. Our hope is our rock-ribbed assurance in Jesus Christ.

We live in a hurting society, with wounds desperate to be mended and questions desperate for answers.

Adrian Rogers tells us, “Our job is not to save America; our first responsibility is not to preserve our freedoms. Our prime responsibility is to witness to this world of Jesus’ grace and power; to say it and mean it, “Jesus is Lord.’”

As the days grow gloriously dark, we can find comfort in knowing the church will survive, for Jesus said, “Upon this rock I’ll build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18)

Apply it to your life
As Adrian Rogers says, “We are personal representatives of the Lord Jesus, and the church can continue to grow even when it is perceived by (society) as the enemy. I’m calling you to a Christian world view that’s backed up by a Christian lifestyle.”
