This week we’re going old school and revealing Five Social Media Secret Weapons (one a day) that will significantly amp your time online as a Christ follower. That’s right—no apps, plug-ins or widgets, just some practicle and powerful tools anyone can use. If you use these secret weapons you can immediately expand your reach, your influence, and your success online (and make $5,000 in one day on Twitter. . . not!)
Secret #1: sneakers. That’s right. The best online conversations start off line—on quiet walks (mental or physical) with the King of relationship, Jesus Christ.
3 things that can happen in sneakers:
- Creativity rises. You get out of the digital space and into God’s presence. There you find answers, peace, joy—and fresh air! In the stillness you will see what matters to God in the week stretched out before you. Looking at life through His eyes, you will find your focus, your voice, and even the creativity you’ve been looking for.
- Uncertainty fades. You’ll know what to hold on to and what to let go of. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in where to invest your heart and the anxieties you need to hand over to Him—right now.
- Heartbeats get louder. God may even let you in on the precious heartbeats of those around you. If you are faithful in prayer and building relationships online, you will see the “post behind the post” and the “tweet behind the tweet” and have the privilege of ministering to another person.
Are you putting on your sneakers and getting alone with God? Do you find yourself aching to be with Him or reluctantly logging off?
To connect to others, first connect to God. Pursue God before your gadgets. #LiveSticky
