In his Turning Point Daily Devotional for March 31, David Jeremiah writes: With the click of a button, we can reach hundreds or thousands of people. Social media has created a way to share our thoughts instantly. Most people use social media for this purpose alone, but we have the opportunity to use it for more.
The power of the Holy Spirit equips us to be Christ’s witnesses, and social media can be a method of sharing Christ. When a friend shares his or her struggles, we can pray and send a message of encouragement. Social media also can bring opportunities to serve as we hear of friends going through sickness or difficulties.
People are drawn to the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23). As we ask the Holy Spirit to guide us, we can become active witnesses instead of passive observers. Social media does not have to be a black hole of wasted hours. We can be intentional in our use of social media and allow the Holy Spirit to work through our posts and comments.
