Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:20

 I was studying some of my History Books and you know in 1948, General Omar Bradley made a statement with a prophetic ring to it: “We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. . . . Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.” When I read that, I was shocked, and couldn’t deny the fact of feeling sorrow and sadness.

What an accurate description of our times right now.  Today, with all our technology, we have simply discovered new ways to kill one another and to eradicate what God has done. Despite our great technologies and great abilities, we have made no progress in solving our basic human problems. That is because the world is upside down. While the early church turned their world upside down, it seems today that the world is turning the church upside down. The early church consisted of a relatively small group of Christians. Their numbers were not large like ours today. They did not have the technology like we have today to get the Word out. Yet they made a dramatic difference wherever they went.

Today, with so many naming the name of Christ, our impact on the world seems to be null and void. And that is my point. Christians are allowing secular attitudes to find their way into the church and into their lives. It seems like our culture is affecting us more than we are affecting our culture.

The world needs to see a genuine man or woman of God living the Christian life. They need to see the real thing. In short, they need to see you. God can use you. Maybe you are not a preacher, but you can proclaim the gospel message through your life and through your words. You can turn your world upside down.
