Discuss about the Foundations of a Bible Based Christ Worldview.
In this reading, the topic of the discussion is about the difference between living and existing in the realms of Christianity. The various things in the reading have been described in the book on the factor of transformation of the human beings (Cochrane 2015). It has to be believed that transformation is not something that can happen just within a vacuum. The people who are already entrapped in a deep sense of trouble need to overcome the factors by a strong sense of confidence to overcome the situation (Cochrane 2015). These people act like the true inspirations in the practical lives of the people. They have to be always active in their work fields and they will be very much confident in very work they undertake. There are some questions in this context like the existence of God and God’s care for His followers. God is omnipotent and He has chosen some ways to guide the people towards salvation (Bass 2012).
This paper has to be analyzed in order to address the situations of God’s existence. God has His footprints everywhere in the world. Many people come to know about the existence of God in different ways but it is indeed important to know and believe that God really exists. It is the duty of the parents to make the children aware of God’s existence and His benevolent nature. The fact can be asserted that children are the representatives of the God. Next up, comes the factor of God’s care for His followers (Johnson 2012). It is, therefore, to be sure that God really has stored something good for everyone who have good in their lives. The people have to believe that the way that the world is run and everything is kept at its deserved place; this proves God is taking care of this universe very effectively every single second.
I would like to put light on this fact that God is benevolent and omnipotent in His own rights. God never does wrong things to His followers. I have full faith in God and I believe it is our duty as well as responsibility to good things to this world. I have to admit many times tragedies occur but it does not mean that God does not look to the comforts of the people and the betterment of the universe. It is the God who created the human beings according the Bible (Forell 2012). The human beings are the most genius creation on earth since nothing is impossible for the human kind. I must believe that divine intention is one of the faultiest concepts in this scenario. I believe that I have to address the situation of not attending the church services that we are not able to attend the churches when we are at work (White 2016). Despite this problem, we should try to worship His divine powers from our mind. One most important aspect in this context is the fact that God has to be there with us at every phase of life in our workplaces. He must care for us in difficult times that we face in the workplaces. Only then we might believe that God is with us and cares for us.
In this part of the discussion, it is to be described that the little boy who was badly frightened overcame his fear in no time as soon as he came up with his father at that place. He was afraid to the fullest when he had to fetch the drinks for his family but he could not go forward as he thought the darkness was too much there (Stott 2012). The darkness made him become afraid and as a result, he could not proceed. The rustling of the trees in the wind made him get afraid and he was frightened about the fact that he had to he could not complete the job. Next, when his father came to the scene he was able to get rid of his fear with the slight help and providing confidence by his father. This story has vividly focused on the dependence of human beings on the God and keeping faith on him (Kilner 2015).
In the analysis of the story in this part, it has to be said that God is the motivator and he restores power and confidence among the human beings. This is due to the factor God possesses the powers that help the human beings to work positively in the realm of the work fields. God motivates the human beings in almost every stage of live (Dawkins 2016). He bestows the strength to rely on one’s own and then get to the heart of the matter by overcoming all the fears. God is the father of the universe and He takes care of His followers very effectively and looks after their comforts. God takes care of the cause and effect relationship in the works that the human beings do (Kilner 2015).
I would strongly suggest the human beings to believe in the power of God and have full faith in Him. I believe that the nature of our activities reveal who we actually are from inside. The cause and effect relationship between the works of the human beings has a dichotomy within itself. This should represent the fact that the different kinds of occupations and professions should represent different facets of the human beings (Tozer 2015). According to the Bible, God had planted the seeds and the human beings should develop properly in this context. I have a personal belief that the God cares for us in the same way that we care for Him. The story of Jesus and Peter in Matthew 17 discloses the fact that God sent Jesus on earth to know about the problems of the people and to solve them. These things can be done in real good time by Jesus Himself. God is always benevolent to the human beings and he always gives them the opportunity to salvage his sins to avoid damnation. I suppose these things are eventually important indeed to build the faith and trust on God.
In this segment the plan is to discuss the fact about the presence of god in the daily lives of the human beings. The identity of the work is recognized by God according to the profession of the human beings. The people who work in the service industry have a lot of responsibilities to focus on. The people in the different occupations like lawyers, doctors, politicians and others have their own ways to project on what type of persons they are. These may work as delusions in some cases. The souls of the human beings are presented in the kinds of activities they perform in their real lives. An important thing in this context is the factor of holding the followers in the baptismal waters longer than three minutes. This would help the people get transformed into the blessings of eternity. God has the supreme power in the universe by the help of which He has shaped the world. God holds the hand of the human beings by which he gives them the power to overcome the challenges in the workplace and in every difficult situation (Eagleton 2014).
The reading has to be analyzed in this part. It focuses on the fact that God determines the powers of the human beings and provides them with strengths to overcome the challenges in every sphere just as the child had overcome his fear when he hold the hands of his father (Emery 2012). The story that is being told in this scenario is about a woman who has been focused in her career and thinks that it is her duty to play all the responsibilities for the company she works for. Apart from wanting the best results for herself, she has always prayed for the best for the company as well. The results turned out that the Holy Spirit came in rescue for her and disclosed a recent flaw in her company regarding to a project (Noble 2013). Finally she was saved.
I must say in this context that it has been tried and tested to keep faith in God always. God is the power that controls everything. The factor that the CEO of the company had befooled the auditors in a great way was made clear to her. She became aware of the God’s power and believed in the true existence of God. After hearing about the specific details, the CFO was too stunned and she was very much confident since she came to know about the information about the God Himself. Therefore, I must say that human beings must put focus on the powers of God. God is the most trustworthy source in the world that can be trusted in almost every matter indeed. We must work hand in hand with God so that we can be successful in almost every endeavor that we undertake. We have to get rid of every adversity and difficulties in life by worshipping Him and keep absolute faith in Him. If we let Jesus come into our heart, we will be salvaged of all the sins we had committed in the past and therefore give birth to a new form of ours.
