Coffee, Facebook, Twitter, Picture Sharing, Wall Posting … they are all about one main thing — CONNECTION. Just this past week I have heard from classmates, relatives, young people I have mentored, and even my mom.
As a Christ Follower, whenever I read about Jesus who WAS the great teacher (and the one I choose to direct my life) actually went out of His way — often to make these “connections”.
I would have loved to read his Tweets or Status Updates:
- “Have a meal with me … “
- “Feed my lambs … “
- “Just told the guys to throw the net on the other side — we’re gonna have a lot of fish tonight!”
- “On my way to raise a dear friend from the dead …”
- “I love you, even though you haven’t realized it yet.”
- “Father, forgive them …”
You may want to read some of these bible-time updates yourself. You could start with the Gospel of John, it’s a great read.
