Many people are weeping over this presidential election. “O woe is me! Our world is doomed!”
Okay, so maybe I’ve moaned a tad, myself. But, you gotta understand, my candidate is a very flawed human being?
Will you say that? Frankly, if you won’t, you’re fooling yourself. If you believe your candidate is above reproach, and that the other guy’s candidate is the incarnation of evil, you are living in a fantasy world. You’ve given yourself a “Political Party Lobotomy”, and are walking around like a Zombie (with a little drool dripping from the corner of your mouth), saying, “My candidate is wonderful!”
Frankly, what kind of people did you expect would run for office? Our society is down the toilet, we are producing more and more gutter trash, therefore the quality of candidates has plunged to new and as of recently unseen depths.
America has gotten the products of what we have become.
What’s a Christian to do? Listen to what was said of the followers of Christ just a few years after Jesus’ ascension.
“These who have turned the world upside down have come here too.” (Acts 17:6)
The early church made such a difference in their society that they were world changers!
Have you been turning your world upside down for Jesus?
Christians (churches, you, me) must work to transform society. That is not done by legislation. NO! It’s done by living for Christ in such a way that others will want what we have. Then Jesus can transform the individual.
Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” (Matt. 5:14)
Frankly, the light in America is kind of low. The church has become too much like the world. It’s almost as if we want to be twin brothers to the trash. Here’s a couple of things to consider.
1. Our Light Shines in the Manner We Choose to Live. Are you living a Godly life, reflecting the Holy Spirit? Does the way you spend your time emulate God or the world?
Imagine if Christians would take to heart the fact that they are representatives of the kingdom of God. Would that change the way they live?
2. Our Light Shines to Attract Others to Jesus. The Christian church has not grown in the United States in a number of years. I don’t want to be a downer, but Christians are failing at evangelism.
Imagine what the change in our society would be if each Christian would bring one person to Jesus in the next four year. That’s all. One. Wow! Would the next election be different. It would help to transform our society.
I always hear people grumbling about the country going down the tubes. But it didn’t get there by itself. We kind of pushed it.
If you are a Christian in name only, stop moaning about a wicked society. It’s time for you to turn to God and ask His forgiveness for your failings, rededicate your life to His task and purpose. God’s given you the answer to all life’s problems. Be a part of the solution. Be a part of the exciting task of turning the world upside down!
Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
