The Social Media Gospel

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

With the click of a button, we can reach hundreds or even thousands of people.Social media has created a way to instantly share our thoughts. People share their favorite recipes or a newly discovered restaurant. Others may tell of their vacation. They use it to announce the birth of a new grand baby or an upcoming wedding. There is nothing wrong with any of those things but we have the opportunity to use it for more.

When a friend shares their struggles, we can pray and send a message of encouragement. Social media can also bring opportunities to serve as we hear of friends going through sickness or difficulties. By asking the Holy Spirit to guide us, we can become active witnesses instead of just passive observers. Social media does not have to be a hole of wasted hours.We can intentional in our use of social media and allow the Holy Spirit to work through our posts and comments.
