10 powerful scriptures about who you are—through God’s eyes

 

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Col. 3:12

In cyberspace the temptation to lose yourself and become someone other than the real you is great. In fact, for some, it’s just way too easy. Pick a handle, find a picture, create a bio, and if you want—link it all to another web destination. Viola! Your version of you.

You slide behind the avatar and off you go. But wait…

50 top live sticky tweets & posts to share

It’s Potluck Friday, which means it’s time to share.

This week we’ve been all about how to #LiveSticky. To #LiveSticky is the biblical charge that our words, lives, and digital interactions transcend—and transform—the 24/7 chatter and turn people’s hearts to the things of God.

To bring this calling home, here’s a list of our top 50 #LiveSticky re-tweets/posts for you to use. Let’s light up this place like the Fourth of July—in His name and for His fame.

1. Extend. Astonishing. Grace. #LiveSticky
2. Put the devil on notice: nothing that can separate you from the Love of Christ. #LiveSticky
3. God’s not anointing who you want 2 be or who you try 2 be. He’s anointing who He designed you 2 be. #LiveSticky
4. Fear keeps you up all night while faith rocks you to sleep. Identify the fear & hand it over to Jesus. #LiveSticky
5. Miracles are taking place as we speak. Some will see them, others will walk right past. #LiveSticky
6. Awaken your heart to the things of God. #LiveSticky

the light we “might have” given


Arise, shine; For your light has come!  And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

Isaiah 60:1

Have you ever compared yourself to another Christian? Have you ever thought that perhaps you didn’t have “as much” to offer? Maybe you aren’t as colorful with your gifts; perhaps your holiest thoughts tumble out like bricks. Or, perhaps you are absoutely petrified to say the word “Jesus” in earshot of anyone else.

potluck friday: 5 fab women to follow

It’s potluck Friday and once again we’re keeping it simple . . . real simple. Just like last week, this list could go on for a mile (and last week it did because of all of you!) We are going to get it started by sharing the scoop on five women who inspire us and many others daily online.

Then it’s your turn to add your #FF favs in the comment section.

By the end of the day, our mutual communities will be loaded with more light and more glory directed heavenward simply by believers uniting online. If you use the Follow Friday hashtag (#) effectively, this is a great way to build a targeted community that you can trust, learn from, and with whom you can swap resources and knowledge.

We know the #FF is a Twitter thing, but we selected peeps you will be able to find in many places. We highly recommend you friend them on Facebook, “like” their fan pages, drop by to comment on their blogs or check out their websites. You’ll be blessed.

Here we go…

fix your eyes on the unchangeable One

And then, He told them, “You are to go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere.
– Mark 16:15, TLB

Looking around it’s easy to become discouraged.

Is anyone really paying attention to the Holy things of God?

People peer into their computers, phones and televisions more than they peer into the Heart of Heaven. The Shiny Things around us have replaced the Light of the World . . . or so it seems.

believer: it’s time to get off the bench and go

Being a Christ follower in the 21st Century online world is mind blowing.

Have you checked out the scoreboard lately?

The numbers don’t lie. More people will log on to blogs, Facebook, and Twitter this Sunday than will go to church. More people will meet the person they are going to marry online than will meet at the church barbecue. And more people will share their joys, heartbreak, and revelations via status updates than those who will seek the help of a counselor or a pastor this year.

our thanksgiving prayer

Dear Lord,

You are Jehovah-Nissi, our Banner. You’ve captured our hearts and set them on fire. We are stuck on You – forever. May our lives be a living recommendation to others of the new life that we have in You.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits. ~ Psalm 103:2 – NKJV

giving thx 4 twitter

It doesn’t take you long to gather that people use Twitter in a variety of ways. Some use it as a marketing tool, as e-mail, as conversation among business teams at conferences, and as a texting channel in small groups. It’s easy to jump into the flow of the conversation and find your voice here. You can use the search box on the right side column to type in key words of topics that interest you. More than likely, you will find a conversation out there that you feel comfortable joining.

will you stick to your post?

Recently there’s been a wave of negative press from church leaders about the use of social media among staff and congregation. Reactions range from harsh mandates to church-wide boycotts. The news of it saddens us. Really saddens us. It leaves us feeling all the more urgent and asking questions—a lot of questions.

• Are we willing to surrender to the enemy what could be used to share good news, give life, and bring God glory?
