Do you really believe you can do greater things empowered by the Holy Spirit than even Christ did while He walked the earth?
Perhaps if you did—if we all did—things might look differently around us. Jesus charged His believers to get up and go, to share the truth about Him with the world.
He called those believers, and He’s calling you, a “light.”
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Matthew 5:14, NIV
What does light do? It makes things visible and more easily understood. God’s light helps others see what they didn’t see—or couldn’t see—when the lights were out.
Your presence as a believer in social networking circles “sheds light on” cultural, social, and political issues, world events, personal struggles, and issues of morality that a global culture all but shrouds.
You will find in this new frontier that persuasion; influence, marketing, vanity, and jockeying for position are the universal currency. Your presence is to be monetized; your message is to be marginalized, to make room for the next, best thing in a Land of Shiny Things.
“Remember, our Message is not about ourselves; we’re proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master. All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you. It started when God said, ‘Light up the darkness!’ and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful.”
2 Corinthians 4:5–6 The Message
It’s your job is to illuminate and celebrate truth in a whole different way.
So in such a time as this—the predetermined time to which you were born—how do YOU follow Jesus in a Web-based world and lead others to do the same?
