what s in a worldview

  • Discussion Prompt: What’s in a Worldview?

    God has granted grace to each of us, so we can take an honest, critical and discerning look at ourselves. Indeed, it is not an overstatement to observe that when it comes to answering the question, What is God’s vocation on my life, there are really two critical questions. The first: Who am I? And the second: Am I willing to live in humble acceptance of the call of God? … for now consider that few things matter more than our capacity to know ourselves, to see ourselves truthfully…[because] God’s purposes in the world are always consistent with the way that God has made the world. And, further, God’s redemptive purposes will always be in deep congruity with how God has made the world. So, to ask how is God calling you or me to act in this world, we go back to an earlier question: How did God make us? (Smith, 2011, p. 53)In this passage from Courage and Calling, Smith (2011) makes a statement that to understand our calling, you need to understand God’s design or purposes. This passage asks many important questions, but the one question to answer in this session’s discussion is “How does being familiar with a biblical worldview help us understand the big picture of God’s design, and how can you apply that understanding to your own calling?”
