Ask yourself a few questions as you seek out content to share with your online communities.
What do you love? Do you love sports? Do you love studying God’s word? Do you love marketing or technology? Do you enjoy history or politics? Are you an advocate for cancer research? Are you into the stock market? Do you love books?
What inspires YOU?
Whatever your niche of wonderment or expertise, your social networking goal is to pepper the everyday things you love with biblical content. This allows you to uniquely bring God’s voice into all you do. That’s everything from a popular YouTube video of a cat playing the drums to a smackdown sermon by T. D. Jakes or an inspiring music video by Michael Gungor. Wherever the Holy Spirit leads you, share it. It’s His job to prepare hearts to receive it.
As an ambassador for Christ, you have His content as your content. There are not enough days in your lifetime to exhaust the mysteries, the depth, the heights, or the dimensions of His life-changing, soul-morphing truth.
You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
1 Peter 2:9–10, NKJV
Mix it up. Keep it real. Remember: if you wax about one thing all the time at social gatherings, people will eventually see you coming and promptly go (or run) the other way. Be mindful not to be the 24/7 Jesus channel in HD. The same holds true in a social networking environment. Speak to people online the way you would face-to-face. Become known as the person in the room listening, responding appropriately, sharing positively . . . and having a great time doing it.
