Many Christians say they are too scared to share the gospel with others, but we easily share anytime with anyone about anything without fear. Have we become unwilling to share the most important message in our lives?
Over 1 billion stories are posted daily on Facebook. Five hundred million are posted on Instagram every twenty-four hours. More than five million snaps are added to Snapchat daily.
It’s mind-boggling to consider how much of the world’s information is shared through social media when you think that the giants like Facebook and Twitter began only in 2006.
The lifetime of many young people is marked by social media’s influence and consistent presence as a megaphone for our society.
These platforms have given all humanity accessibility to be heard and the potential to go viral. Due to that fact, people record videos, filter photos, and post updates.
We comment from afar and share anything we deem interesting with an unknown audience.
Our world has grown accustomed to sharing private moments and public thoughts about anything and everything except for one thing. How many Christians find it easy to share daily details without ever testifying to God’s grace?
The problem isn’t that we are fearful of sharing; the problem is we aren’t sharing the most essential thing. If Jesus has changed us, we should never shirk back from proclaiming our love for Him online or in person.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.1 Peter 2:9
