Almost 3 month ago, I published a brief piece titled, Invading Facebook. Without having to following the link, I stated that I would invade Facebook with the good news of Jesus Christ at least weekly. Sometimes that would be a prayer, a sermonette, a link to a published commentary, or just words of encouragement.
Today, I encourage all who write sermons, Sunday school lessons, prayers, or prose that praises God, to join in invading not just Facebook, but the entire online world. If God has blessed you with the gift of writing and you use it for sermons or lessons, I encourage you to also place these messages on the many forums available.
If you don’t want to try to figure out your own blog or website, there are numerous sites that only ask you to provide your content. Some pay a little and others not so much, but they are a venue to take the message of hope into a very confused world. I frequently use Examiner as they are aggressively trying to promote themselves as a content rich source.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
Could not your hands on the keyboard be just as beautiful? You are already writing and sharing the good news with your congregations and study groups. Why not take your message to a broader audience?
