You may not own a home or even your own car. But if you’ve got a blog today, you’re sitting on a very valuable piece of property. With the trust in traditional media declining and trust in social media channels on the rise, bloggers today have undisputed influence. This moment in time is especially true for Christians who are brand advocates for history’s most powerful message—the gospel.
Think about it. Some blogs get more visits each day than churches get on Sunday, giving some bloggers more influence than some pastors. While that’s certainly not the intended goal, it is the reality.
Oh thank God – he’s so good! His love never runs out. All of you set free by God, tell the world! Tell how he freed you from oppression, then rounded you up from all over the place, from the four winds, from the seven seas. – Psalm 107:2, The Message

When you surrendered your life to Christ and confessed Jesus as Lord – you were anointed by the Holy Spirit to be significant. Yes, that’s right, as your name was written in the book of life the nod was given and the expectation set that your life and words would proclaim His redemptive plan to restore whosoever believes. Now, like no other time in history, the significance of a Christ follower’s voice and potential impact for the kingdom has never been greater.
