When I travel, I am certain to face significant moments of discomfort, because the place I’m traveling to is not my home; everything is unfamiliar.
What is the overall view of reality that the Bible is affirming? In recent years, though, I have switched from noun to gerund. I have come to emphasize the need to engage in world-viewing rather than the idea of “having” a worldview. I have come to rely much on the Psalmist’s confession that the Word of God “is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”
The Bible is filled with a tapestry of rich imagery, deep doctrine, and sweeping drama, and, ideally, all of these things weave together to drive us to live a vibrant faith which joyfully embraces the freedom that comes from living as sinners saved by grace and called to thanksgiving. However, I believe we sometimes fail to examine the power of imagery in shaping our understanding of what it is to actually live out our response to the Gospel.
