It’s been six months since I’ve learned how to use “Twitter” to “Tweet.” I also learned the importance of “Hashtags.” I was astonished to learn that hashtags (#), make it easy for other users to find and follow tweets about a specific topic or theme, e.g., #SaturdayMotivation, or #SundayThoughts.
As I tweet with fellow believers, I feel connected. As I read various passages of scripture, God’s language of wisdom, love, and warmth provided great comfort. The difficulty that I find with Twitter is, it limits me to the number of characters I can tweet. I love to talk; however, don’t like being limited in what I have to say.
Twitter is a powerful social media instrument if used wisely. It can be a viable instrument to spread the “good news” of Jesus Christ.
Since there are no geographical boundaries when interacting with people around the world, the concept of spreading the “good news,” from this venue is efficient and effective.
When I reminisce of what God has done for me, I humbled and excited. I’m humbled because I know I owe a debt I can never repay. When I read Isaiah 53, I’m brought to tears of the prophetic passage of Jesus Christ’s suffering. I shed tears reading, Romans 5:6-8, “You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die? But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
The Word of God is our anchor that provides hope, inspiration, protection, and guidance during the time we sojourn in this life. The Word of God never changes it exemplifies truth. The use of social media enables us to become “beacons of light,” to the spiritually lost. Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is alive and Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” As it says, in Isaiah 55:11, “So is my word that goes out from my mouth; It will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
