On the night of January 14 I was privileged to speak to a group of men, mostly older men, about social media and the ministry of Christian blogging. My first impression was that these guys had no clue what I was talking about.
I was correct about some of them.
But others got it. They knew how to use Facebook, understood the dangers of being online, and one had even thought about starting a blog.
Regardless, nearly every one was blown away by the world-wide impact that can be made from one’s laptop on the kitchen table, or even one’s smartphone.
However, as I pointed out, not everyone can write, especially for a blog. Nevertheless, God has placed us here for such a time as this, and whatever it is for which we have a talent or gift, God has a plan to reach the world, even if it’s only a small part of it.
Let me share four passages of Scripture with you, then I would encourage you to listen to the short message I gave to the 45 men here in Georgia.
- Esther 4:14 – “For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, [then] shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for [such] a time as this?“
- Philippians 1:27 – “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”
- Colossians 4:2-4 – “Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; (3) Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: (4) That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.”
- Psalm 19:14 – “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.“
