We are blessed! We may not even realize it! Speaking of a time before the web makes me ancient! Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist, invented the World Wide Web (WWW) in 1989, while working at CERN. The web was originally conceived and developed to meet the demand for automated information-sharing between scientists in universities and institutes around the world.
I was in my late teen years! But, rather than focus on the past, let us share on always! Last thing I searched for online. Remember, there was a time before there was the existence of the web! This fact underscores the uses/importance/capability/positives/negatives about the web.
Right off the bat; I am blessed to use the web to search for divine sharing.
One way you can boldly share the Gospel is through your own testimony. Consider going live on Facebook, Instagram or another platform. Or, if you’re more comfortable doing so, prerecord a video. Talk about how you came to faith and what a difference God has made in your life.
More than 57% of the total global population is on social media. That’s a massive digital mission field with potential for Great Commission harvest!
1. Pray for the other side of the screen.
The people reading your post are made in the image of God, and they desperately need Jesus. Pray for opportunities to share about Jesus to them.
2. Post your testimony.
Shoot a quick video of your testimony on your phone: who you were before you met Jesus, how you heard the gospel and who you are now in Christ. Post it on your favorite channels. There is a chance that hundreds, if not thousands, of people could watch it.
3. Post Scripture.
“For the word of God is living and active” (Hebrews 4:12). “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16). Both of these promises remain true on social media, and there is nothing more important and impactful than posting this. The Bible is active, and the gospel is powerful.
4. Ask for prayer requests.
Simply post this on a regular basis — “How can I pray for you today?” I guarantee you that over time people will comment on your post or send you direct messages. Pray over those requests, then follow up with them for updates. Those are front doors to gospel conversations.
5. Share your church’s info.
Every time you post your church’s sermon and events, you are inviting all of your followers to church. Every pastor loves when their members invite spiritually lost people to church. When you share that sermon, in a sense, you just invited all your friends and family to church.
Very briefly, my story: the web has been in existence as I shared since I was a teenager. Yes! College days were at the beginning of the internet! Funny, my son is going to sit for an examination and the simplest way would be to get the means of preparation online. I remember when a book said it all! Yes! There is still communication via a different form…
In my ‘dream,’ after my accident as shared, I in stating my heartfelt desire – to wake up! I thought it was a one night dream and ‘said’ to my Reason that I would share my dream with the staff in the operating room the next day. I look back and realize how incredibly blessed I am! 4 people became countless. God is so far beyond AMAZING – God is indescribable!!!
He is unchanging in His Word and His will. In Malachi 3:6, He declares, “I am The Lord, I change not.” God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and everywhere present. There are no bounds or limits to His knowledge, Presence, or Power.
The Apostle Paul describes the gift of salvation as “indescribable” (2 Corinthians 9:15). Other versions of the Bible translate this unique Greek word as “inexpressible” (ESV), “unspeakable” (LSV), or “too wonderful for words” (CEV).
Human beings are finite creatures, so our minds always work from a finite perspective. We live, move, and have our being on a finite plane, but God lives, moves, and has His being in infinity. Our finite understanding cannot contain an infinite subject; thus, God is incomprehensible.
