Do you post your faith, or live it?

25 Oct

One of the interesting aspects of Social Media is that it allows Christians to become more vocal about their faith, but at the same time, it also gives them an escape from being more active in that same faith. I know a lot of people are trying to figure out what I mean, but bear with me.

If you look at Facebook, you’ll notice that Christian Posts far outweigh secular ones (that is a documented fact). But yet for some reason, there are fewer and fewer people who claim Jesus Christ as Lord. Now how can there be such a huge medium to spread the word of Jesus all over the world, yet His name is shrinking from people’s lips? Easy, people are talking about Him, but not showing others about Him.

It’s easy to hide behind a keyboard and proclaim your love for Jesus while others around you are suffering but it takes pure faith to see the suffering and go out to do something about it. Now I don’t think there’s anything wrong with posting quotes and verses on Facebook, in fact I love it. What I a simply saying is that we need to combine it with active participation in the world. If we combine the power of social media, and active, personal evangelism, then we can rock this world for Jesus.

Take time to get out there today and practice being Christ-like by being the example of Jesus where others can see and feel you. Continue posting about Jesus for all the world to see, but let’s focus on practicing what we post. Star slow if you have to, but just do it… :)

 

James 1:23-25 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

 

James 2:14-17 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

 

James 2:18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
