In an age of openness
Not since Adam and Eve’s first date has there been this much openness in society. People reveal almost anything on social media. One celebrity posted a selfie while she was in the shower. This is a shocker to those of us who were told “never let ’em see you sweat.”
Millennials are masters of social media. Your native transparency has a huge upside for spreading Christianity. The gospel is not an encrypted message. Jesus had this in mind when he said, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
People are recruited to all kinds of movements from what they see via social media. My young friends, could you use it to let your light shine so that others may glorify God? I’m not thinking of staged religious demonstrations. That’s not your style. Rather, would you be willing to reveal your personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Would you be willing to let the world see your reverence when you bow your head and listen in real time when you pray? Could you use new platforms to show others the power of the cross in your life? I’d upload a video of you singing an original Christian song. Maybe you could crowdsource the next iteration of the one holy Christian and apostolic church. You can tell I am running out of ideas. But I’m very confident you will be able take it from here.
