Keeping perspective in a world full of high-tech and high-touch shiny gadgets demands enormous energy and capacity. The velocity of change can blur your daily thinking about what’s most important – if you let it.
- There’s so many people, eager to give voice to their opinions and ideas.
- There’s so much information, digitally captured and readily accessible.
- There’s so much new technology launching, affordable, and easy to use.
And what’s most important in all of it? Right now One Spirit-filled voice has everything it needs to reach millions with a single post and click.
And soon this cyber world will be even bigger. Instead of reaching millions, the number of people will grow to billions. Between mobile technology and satellite placement, this generation will more than likely live in a world completely WiFi enabled. A world where messages instantly travel to the ends of the earth. And while no one knows the day or hour of His return, believers with an alert heart feel the urgency. The revelation of what God is making possible compels them to take action. They know it’s time for digital disciples to unite, man their posts, and infiltrate the front lines of the cyber mission field.
God’s status update regarding the world hasn’t changed: I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. ~ John 4:35, NIV
Christ’s final commission hasn’t changed either: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. ~ Acts 1:8, NIV
Do you wonder how this all comes together for you? Open your heart and listen closely.
