When we typically think of doing something big for God, we often think we must be someone who has power and influence like Billy Graham, Kanye West, or Tim Tebow. But history disproves this idea. For example, during a time when the mainstream church taught that common folk could not communicate with God, a “nobody” named George Whitfield, who played an integral part in the Great Awakening, taught that a relationship with God is personal and anyone could know Him without possessing wealth or status for which to pay for a priest. The churches shut their doors to Whitfield and so he preached in the streets. Hundreds of thousands of people heard him speak in fields and streets and—thousands came to Christ.

Why was one person so influential—even though he was without the support of the wealthy, powerful, or even mainstream religion?

He had a transformational relationship with God which people could SEE and—this gave him the most powerful platform of influence in the world—the power to influence hearts! IS THIS YOU? Our relationship with God is a GIFT every living person may possess. Unless—we fail to allow God to transform us. The power of our influence is unlimited when we allow God to transform and guide us. Each person who is born again is given a new beginning because they are a “new creation” and Jesus lives inside them. The Bible says: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:17‬)

We can be so influential that even our enemies will acknowledge the power of our presence, just like in the book of Acts when the enemies of Christians were afraid and angry because of the powerful influence the Christians had on their townsfolk. The enemies of the Christians said: “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also.” (Acts‬ ‭17:6‬) Is your life characterized by such an overflow of Christ’s love that the space you inhabit is much, much, better than it would be without you? It can be!

When Jesus lives IN us and as we allow Him to live THROUGH us—we are enabled to “turn the world upside down.”
