He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” – Mark 16:15, NIV

The command has been given. There’s much work to do and it’s time for you, beloved digital disciple to GO. Don’t keep this lost and dying world waiting another moment longer.
The journey starts HERE:
- Pray – Pray – Pray – Submit your heart, time, and online conversation to the Lord. Allow Him to power you up before you power on each day.
- Focus on the agenda – Stay on mission. Know why you are there and Who you serve.
- Listen carefully – There’s a lot of chatter, but among it are real people in real need of the Truth that can save them.
- Understand there’s a person behind every post –Hurt people hurt. It’s no different online. Don’t judge or discriminate. Ask your Father to see the person behind the post through His eyes.
Releasing your gifts online is a holy act of worship.

Click on your favorite social media site and it’s easy to dismiss your digital impression as just a blip on the screen. Be warned, however, there’s danger in that kind of thinking. Go too far and the next thing you know, fear and insecurity show up. When you discount your influence online, you deny God’s ability to work through you. Remember, you’re a precious original. He’s made you one of a kind. You’re gifted to do good work and that includes online.
Your consistency, whole-hearted commitment, and dedication to being completely what God created you to be illuminates the way for others. It also builds up and strengthens the whole body of Christ.
And that’s why there’s more
God designed you to compliment and complete others. Deliberately commissioned, you’re here as a member of His body to accomplish His plan for this generation. When you decide to live out your faith online, fully live it out; God’s progress is radically accelerated.
In chapter 12 of Paul’s letter to the Romans, you find the practical action plan for how to live and be. All of it’s applicable to you, online. Offer back to God the best of what He has put in you and your lives individually and collectively become a living sacrifice and a holy act of worship. It’s a beautiful thing and the consequences are eternal.
Paul instructs us how to live and be
By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. ~2 Peter 1:3

This letter is to the Church; to pastors, bishops, elders, deacons, youth pastors, and anyone accountable for leading and discipling God’s people.
A recent Barna Group study reveals striking new data on how the digital age is shaping parent-child relationships. For us, the study begs the question: Why isn’t the church taking a stronger lead in teaching proper technology use in families?
We believe the study should compel church leaders everywhere to find the resources to equip their congregations in this area. In addition, this focus needs to take place immediately—not worked into a five-year plan.

This week we’re living in the Book of John. Just for fun, we thought we’d channel our favorite desert preacher, John the Baptist (different from the author of this gospel), who we meet in John 1:6. He was bold, brash, and brave when it came to speaking Truth. John knew how to #LiveSticky and still inspires us to do the same today. We hope his ministry ignites your thinking and helps you share your faith online with uncompromised conviction. Have fun sharing these posts/tweets with others.
1. The good news of the gospel begins with the bad news of man’s sin. #JohnTheBaptist
2. If I had preached the soft gospel of this generation, I would have kept my head. #JohnTheBaptist
3. Go big with the gospel or go home. #JohnTheBaptist
