Using Social Media to Glorify God
I think we live in the most exciting time period ever. We have incredible opportunities right in front of us and if that in itself wernt enough, we also have more available time than any other generation before us. What use to take days to complete now takes hours because of modern conviences like microwaves, washer and dryers, cars, email etc. So we have this great dove tail of available time and opportunites. For instance, we have lots of facebook friends yet more time to communicate with them than we would have had in 1923.
Perhaps you've had a deisre or thought about using your influence to reach people for Christ but just arnt sure how. Well, today (partnering with Angi from Stuff Angi Does), I am starting a week long series Using Social Media to Glorify God to give you some practical tools for your heart, mind and hands to help you make the most of the incredible opportunity the Lord has given you. Here is a short intro to the series.
Why Social Media?
Jesus told us to go and make disciples. Go means to take the initative. Many years ago the only way to take the initative to reach people for Christ to the ends of the earth was to hop on a boat and sail over to another country to tell people about Jesus. Years later came planes, and now there is the internet and with it the far reaching effects of social media where we can reach people for Christ in other countries while living across the globe from each other.
Multiple middle eastern countries were turned upside down through social media revolutions. The same thing can happen on a spiritual level. I truly believe God can and wants to use social media to ignite a revivalution.
I hope you are catching a glimpse of how exciting this is!
Tomorrow I am going to share some pretty awesome examples of what God is doing through social media in peoples lives. Wednesday I will talk about heart issues, Thursday and Friday, practical ways to use facebook, twitter and blogging to glorify God and reach and influence people for Christ.
