The past couple of days, I have spent a lot of time paying attention to social media. If you are not into it, you should be. I have found that yes, as we all already know, there is a lot of negativity, hatred, and flat out disgusting things that people share to escalate either their egos or their place in society’s ladder.
But here is also what I have found. Connected to the right people, you can find inspiration. I have recently seen the postings of some very influential young Christians on Twitter and they have accepted me also.
The other positive aspect is the fact that it is your opportunity to be the hands and feet (or fingertips) of Christ in redeeming this area of our world. See what people are into and you will see how better to pray for them. For better or worse, there may be no better way then to get a barometer of where someone is at or is in need. Formulated correctly, this could be a jump start on a plan to reach them.
I have honestly been very encouraged lately to see that it doesn’t have to be as bad as some make it out to be. I certainly do not advocate spying on or bashing people with Jesus over their head, but if done with love, it can be an asset.
We as Christians must go to the mission field. It is sometimes a dark and scary place. But then again, I am reminded that Jesus hung out with sinners, just like me!
