734399_431886196897621_1694844016_n-242x300Today let’s make it personal and asked ourselves, should our faith and love for the one who gave it all so that we may have a “right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city,” in God’s pure and holy kingdom be reduced to only a click and share?

As a Child of God I believe that Facebook, Twitter or any “Social Media” outlet is not a primary area of my Lord and Masters concern as long as we have the poor, hungry, imprisoned, widowed, orphaned, and an immoral world that has lost sight of the saving grace of His love.

I really do and I believe each of you also love Jesus more than life itself. So we must ask our-self, if we click and share my feelings about my love for Christ, would that really allow a fallen world that desperately needs the transforming power of God’s Spirit, to know Him, or does it just allow me to have a hands off approach to Christ Mandate that tells His children to “go into all the world and preach the gospel.”

“According to the first chapter of Acts, 120 believers met in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. This is a ratio of 1 Christian to approximately every 500,000 to 580,000 people in the empire. From a human standpoint, Jesus’ command to preach the gospel to the world seemed unthinkable.

The Christian church exploded in growth. Tens of thousands were converted. The message of Jesus’ love was carried to the remotest parts of the empire. It reveals that in a few generationsimages37 Christianity had invaded nearly every level of society even in the remote provinces. “(Mark Finley)

And my friends, this was actually done without any “Social Media,” and millions eventually died so that a world could receive the good news of Christ Salvation. Persecution of the Christians started with the Emperor Nero in the summer AD 64.

At that time Christians were a small underground group among the slaves and poor people, making them the perfect scapegoat when Nero set Rome on fire and blamed it on the Christians which lead to the persecution of millions. Christians were thrown to wild beasts and eaten alive in arenas throughout the empire, others were crucified. But, the more they killed the more the church grew.

Those who gave there life for the Master came to be known as “martyrs,” which means “witnesses.” And this my friends is how they showed their love for Jesus Christ as they allowed their focal point to be centered on his saving grace. So today let’s focus on how can we obtain this same passion that will let the world know we are “witnesses” for Christ.

imagesWell, in God’s word, Jesus answers that question Himself, when He says “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Matt 16:24 (NIV) That is what it will take and that can only happen when self-dies and Jesus Christ lives through us.

My friends, the final Chapter of this great Controversy between good and evil Is being written Right now, the climax will be when Christ comes to take His faithful Children, who have endured to our new Home and life eternal. So if you love Jesus by all means click and share, but most of all, seek first His kingdom and Spirit with a passion and then all power will come upon us as we become witnesses “in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1;8 (NKJV)


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
