Do you spend more time ‘liking’ status updates of people you hardly know, more than liking the One who knows you best?
Do you spend more time keeping up with the Kardashians than keeping up with your Bible study?
Do you follow more blogs than you follow Peter’s example? (This blog excluded, of course.)
If you answered YES to any of these questions, you may be in need of a divine social intervention.
The NFL debate, celebrity photo hacking, viral hashtags, oh my. There is so much to distract us on a daily basis; information at our fingertips, literally.
Our cell phone beeps with alerts that beg for our attention.right.now. We just can’t resist swiping our phone, can we?
But, there is someone else who, through all the chatter, is trying to get our attention…Jesus.
[Tweet “Jesus walked on water, yet, He is competing with sport stars for our attention.”]
What does Jesus have to do to connect with us? Open a Facebook, Twitter, an Instagram account? Dying for us wasn’t enough?
Would He tweet “Frustrated with human-kind and their constant distractions.”?
Would His Facebook status read, “Missing you.”?
Would that get your attention, or at least a ‘share’?
What would happen if we spent as much time in His presence as on social media? What would we gain? Would we truly follow Him?
