God is bringing the reformation movement into shape to awaken and revive His people. This reformation proclaims the complete authority of God's Word. It emphasizes the power of God to save from sin and transform lives, affecting all aspects of a civilization. Proponents of this new reformation hold that Scripture is true in relation to every field: science, politics, education, technology, and so on. This idea of Biblical supremacy is well-described by the term "Biblical worldview."
A worldview is a way of looking at the world. If we hold to the truth of Scripture, we will look at the world with the understanding that Christ is the Creator. We will see that God has a purpose in our lives. We will also see that when we continue to trust Him, He gives us power to live for Him!
Romans 1:16 tells us, "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God into salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek."
Even though God is at work, we must recognize that the
"rulers of the darkness of this world" (Ephesians 6:12) are continuing
to grow in power and influence. They will only be finally defeated by
Jesus Christ Himself.
So, how can we see change? What can we do to turn others back to Biblical authority - and to their Creator?
It must be emphasized that "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal [fleshly], but mighty through God." (II Corinthians 10:4) In order to win this war of life, it is imperative that we show Christ's love to all, exemplify His humble, gracious Spirit throughout our work, and be in consistent prayer and Scriptural study.
On an individual level, we should befriend others and shine the light. (Matthew 5:14-16) We should also learn to always be ready to give an answer for the reason of the hope that is in us. (I Peter 3:15) God can use each of us to powerfully proclaim His truth. We must endeavor to live, and train others to live, as Christ's witnesses.
On a corporate level, we should work to see our churches and communities practice all aspects of the Great Commission. Further, we should support organizations which "turn many to righteousness" (Daniel 12:3) and promote Biblical virtue. It is not enough to know the right things; we need to be active together in doing them!
Our desire at SBR is to help you glorify God by showing you how to better do His will and providing opportunities for you to do so. You will be learn to be a disciple, find and apply Biblical principles, receive mentoring, take trips to reach out to others, and by God's grace fulfill Christ's calling in each jurisdiction.
