Technolgy And The Gospel

  We're living in an age of amazing technology. No matter where we go, we can now take equipment with us to keep in touch with our family, friends and others who follow us. There's cellular telephone, text messages, email, FaceBook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube to just name a few. All of these things allow what has become known as "Social Networking" which could be used to promote the Gospel.

  As Christians, we need to take the tools of technology and use them for evangelizing the world around us. We can use all of these tools to reach people with the message of Christ's love and salvation through faith in Him. We should be using these tools to tell what Christ has done for us, how He saved us, held us, and how we've found peace and understanding through our faith and belief in Christ.

  I'd like to challenge each and every one of you to use your various "social networking" tools for spreading the Gospel. Instead of using these things to just keep people updated on what you're doing or just for keeping track of friends and family; let's use these wonderful tools to spread the Gospel, send our devotions, inspiring Bible verses, make short videos that express our love and devotion to our Lord. Come on, post great sermons you find on YouTube to your FaceBook page, post Christian music videos and when you find a great Scripture that moves you, by all means share with everyone on your various friend lists.

  The world is using this technology to spread things that aren't fit for consumption so, let's use it to tell the story of Jesus and His great love. Let's use every tool God puts in our hands to inspire, to witness and to express our love. Satan wants to use all of this to entrap people, to pollute the Internet with pornography and music that isn't spiritually healthy for people. Let's come together and make the world a better place by taking these tools and using them for God's glory.

  Join me and my friends as we spread the Gospel of Christ around the world with our cell phones, iPads, computers and smart phones. Let's evangelize this lost and dying world with the Good News of Christ's saving grace while we await Christ's return to carry the church home to Heaven.

God bless you and keep you,

Pastor Dave
