Where Am I?

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” – Romans 1:20 Yesterday we talked about the first of the four questions that a worldview must answer: “Who am I?” Today, we will speak of the second fundamental question of a worldview: “Where am I?” When you are in Christ, you are in the Kingdom of God spiritually, and you’re in the Father’s world physically. This planet belongs to Him, and it’s pulsating with life and teeming with growth and motion! Everything that you see happening — flowers blooming, animals playing, humans loving and being loved — is the demonstration of a spiritual reality in a material experience. In other words, what is visible is a shadow of the actual reality, which is divine and intangible. When you

To further that discussion, today, I want to talk about how every one of these kingdoms operates under a philosophy, which is known as a worldview. A worldview is a lens through which you view circumstances and situations; it’s sort of a mishmash of your religion, culture, background, family life, and education. Your worldview provides a framework in which you see and process tragedy, and victory and you perceive meaning and purpose in life. A worldview attempts to answer these four questions: Who am I? Where am I? What’s the problem? What’s the solution?  In Jesus’ day, there were two primary groups that attempted to answer those questions: the Jews and the Romans. The Romans taught that you
