Jesus had complete clarity on who He was and whose He was. He stayed connected to the Father and They moved as One. He knew His audience and who He came to please. Submission to the Father was His way of life and He followed the plan precisely. There was never an occasion where He lost purpose or wasted time. Even in His leisure moments, He was still loving, teaching, and pouring into people.
When interacting with others online it is easy to lose ourselves. We get caught up in time and find ourselves in conversations that don’t matter. Online can be an enormous black hole, for some it can become an addiction. The temptation to be or become ‘someone’ you’re not, is greater than most of us will admit.
Without clear presence of mind and heart, it’s easy for Christ followers to fall into temptation and forget who they are and to whom they belong.
It is dangerous to enter into this web-based world — where unsolicited distractions ping pong around you — where it is easy to lose your true identity.
Who you are speaks directly to your purpose. Why are you here? Why are you here for such a time as this? His timing isn’t accidental. Why you are here is linked to what God has uniquely woven into the fabric of your being. The ‘ALL of you’ is designed to please God. He wants all of you ‘all in’ on His plan.
“I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing, I have it all planned out- plans to take care of you, not abandon you,
plans to give you the future you hoped for.”
Whose you are is governed by whom you serve and what holds your heart. At some point, you made a decision who would be the Lord of your life and heart. Be sure it is Christ sitting on the throne of your life before you engage with others on His behalf. You must have your heart surrendered, centered, and prepared before you enter the online mission field.
“My son, give attention to my words, incline your ear to my sayings.
Do not let them depart from your eyes. Keep them in the midst of your heart,
for they are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh.
Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”
Proverbs 4: 20 – 24
