World Turned Upside Down

Does the world seem right to you?

From everything we can see, the world seems to be in its proper place, but it’s not. It’s been turned upside down.

It’s been turned upside down by sin. Once, the world was a paradise and then sin entered the world. And by sin death came, too. When that happened, the world was turned upside down.

It took the death of Jesus on the cross and the teaching of the apostles to turn it right-side up. In Acts 17:6, after preaching in Thessalonica, Jews who opposed Paul incited a mob and a riot. The rioters dragged Christians before local officials screaming, “these that have turned the world upside down have come here also.”

The apostles were helping turn the world right-side up. But the wisdom of men is often true foolishness (1 Corinthians 1:27f).

Is your world upside down? Take another look; it might be.
