Share the WORD!

March 6, 2017, 3:46 PM

In case you haven’t noticed…social media is a mess these days. 

Most people like to talk.  

Most people like to share their opinion.  

Most people like for others to confirm that their view is a right one and then they feel validated by others agreeing with them.  

Most people are afraid of taking a real stand unless they can stand with others.  They are afraid of what others might say or think about the stand they take.

Most people think that what they say or post on social media will change the mind of others…for most people, it doesn’t

Don’t be like most people.  

I’m not saying don’t share a word with others.  What I am saying is that instead of getting caught up in the cacophony of noise in the world and on social media, share a Word that matters.  

Share God’s Word.  

When you share God’s Word with others you don’t have to talk…you let the Word of God do the talking for you. 

When you share God’s Word you are not sharing your opinion…you are sharing truth, because the Bible is truth.  

When you share God’s Word you don’t need for anyone to confirm you are right or validate your words.  Because the Word of God needs no validation.  

When you stand on God’s Word you don’t have to worry about whether you will have others stand with you, because you are standing with God and that is all that really matters.  

When you share God’s Word you don’t have to worry about whether you have changed anybody’s mind or opinion because that is not your job.  God tasks the Holy Spirit with speaking to the heart.  Yes we aught to demonstrate loving kindness so that people are willing to listen, but our job is share the Word with their ears so that God can work on the heart.  

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. - Hebrews 4:12

The World wants even the “Church Crowd” to focus on a social gospel of love and tolerance.  And, we certainly are to love, and patience and tolerance for all mankind regardless of whether they are willing to listen or not.  But, there is only one Gospel that we are to teach and that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. - Galations 1:9

So, share a word but be sure and when you do in love and kindness, share THE WORD!
