Social Media Missionaries

Social Media Missionaries
Acts 28:31

AUDIO: Listen to the audio version of this post HERE.

Acts 28:31 (NIV)
31  He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance!

Could you imagine the Apostle Paul’s potential influence in a digitally connected world, as we have today?  The Apostle Paul was an unabashed follower of Christ, who was willing to risk his life by going to prison, being shipwrecked, getting snake-bitten and being stoned.  Paul had all of this incredible boldness, which he used to reach and impact a large portion of the continent of Asia (JUST WITHIN HIS LIFETIME), yet he was limited to physical visits and hand-written letters!

What if Paul could have accessed social media?  Here is a “comical” glance at what the Apostle Paul’s Twitter account may have looked like:[a]



Or maybe even like this:[b]

Thanks @missionarydoctor & @fisherofmen. I’m sure I’ll get the
hang of it for I can do all things through Christ who strengthens
me.


     Just a humorous look at the possibilities. No, Paul didn’t have a cell phone in prison. He sent hand inked parchment letters, yet still managed to communicate with much of the Eastern Hemisphere. And, he is still being retweeted today. Have you said anything lately worth retweeting? 

So, what is our excuse?  We DO have access to social media.  We all have the ability/access to be “social media missionaries”;

What are you doing with the Gospel message that has been placed inside of you?
