Text: Matthew 28:19-20
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
The purpose of our salvation is to serve God and one way we are to do that is to rise for the salvation of others. The command to go into all the world and preach the gospel is to every believer. Your light is not to be under the bushel but on top of the candlestick so you can shine for all (Matt 5:15).
Thank God for social media, but while others are using it for worldly or selfish purposes, you and I can use it to tell others about the love of Christ. Places we cannot go; people we cannot meet personally can be reached through the social media, among others.
In Matt 4:19, Jesus met some guys “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” You have people following you on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and so on but what have become of their lives through your posts? Even if you are shy to talk to people about Christ, are you also shy to post about him on your wall?
REFLECTION FOR TODAY:
If the reason why you are on social media is not, firstly, to tell others about Christ, then you need to reconsider your purpose.
Father, I receive power to witness Christ to others in Jesus’ name.
