Jesus and the Social Networks
I was thinking about this social network revolution and how important it is to people today. Then I thought about Jesus. Would he use it? If Jesus had a Facebook profile what would it look like? Can you think outside of the norm for just a moment today with me? What kinds of posts would you find on his wall? How about…
“Getting ready to walk across the sea again…really freaks out those fisherman!”
Or maybe you would read… “Did you know laughter is like good medicine :)LOL?”
Or “keep using MY NAME in vain and I’ll make rush hour longer!”
How about his status updates? Things like “just fed a thousands of folks with a little boys sack lunch…love to see the looks on their faces when the bread multiplies!#full#rockedit#leftovers”
Would Jesus post "selfies" or the people that he was trying to minister to? What kind of “links” would he have…perhaps a link to healing, a link for those who hunger and thirst for righteousness?(all of these would come back to Him) Oh and don't forget videos! Can you imagine Jesus uploading videos to YOUTUBE that meant absolutely nothing? I don’t think so either!
I do believe that He expects us to utilize the knowledge and expertise of our day to engage in society(culture) and evangelize those in our circle of influence. This can and will only happen when I get out of MYSPACE and into His. “Fix your attention of God” the scripture says. God is ready to bring out the best in you to help promote the best in others too. Use the social networks to lift up others and bring joy. And take some time today to get acquainted with this Faithbook, His Word, and start a spiritual profile. You will be connected to the largest social network in the world: the church of the living God!
