“But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.” -James 1:22

We all want to have friends, be well liked, and have a great reputation. After all, it is our reputation that we work our entire life to build and uphold, hoping that it might still be alive once we die.

However, we cannot expense God at hoping to improve our reputation and make a mockery of His word for our gain.

Godvertsing: The use of quotes and bible verses over social media

I am not saying there is anything wrong with posting a bible verse or theologian quote as your status or tweet. That’s great.

But when it becomes an art of trying to divert attention of peoples thoughts about you and you post one of the “top 10 most popular bible verses” and get upset when nobody “likes” your status, you have a problem.

Our God’s reputation cannot be imitated or even manipulated because only He is Sovereign, only He is perfect, and only He has the power to make the ocean calm and the wind still.

Our social media is a way to connect and encourage, not build up ourselves and our own reputation. Why? Because our faith can never be about us because it’s all about Him and what He did for us.

Stop wasting time googling bible verses that you think people would like and start showing God in your real life than your virtual one. There is a world that’s hurting and longing for Christ’s love.

Be the difference because He is the difference in your life.


You + The World = ?

May 2, 2011 Comments Off on You + The World = ?

You as a human being have the potential to be either be of 2 things: a world changer or world changed. The decision is yours, so You + The World =???

We constantly envy people that have impact on our lives, trust the ones that are ahead of us, and look to the people on camera to dictate our mood for the day. We look at news reports to tell us what’s going on in the world, to inform us where we should spend our money, or what’s wrong with society. Well, I will tell you a reoccurring theme that sums up every broadcast and nightly special, something that will never change: the world is engulfed in sin and needs Christ. There you go, you don’t need to ever turn on the TV for the rest of your life because that sentence will encompass every single news report.

You have 1 chance on Earth, whether it be for 14 years, 25 years, 50 years, or 101– you have one shot to change this world. However, are you going to be a world changer and show the world what it needs? Or are you going to let the world dictate your views, your fears, your respect, and your attention and be changed? It’s plain and simple, each and every person reading this blog has the power to be a world changer. YES, YOU have the power to be a world changer, to make a lasting effect that will go down in the history books. Why? You have Jesus inside of you. Jesus was a world changer, Jesus conquered death, Jesus performed miracles, Jesus changed the entire world whether or not they all realize it. You have the power of Jesus inside of you as a Christian; therefore, you have the power to be a world changer.

Stop letting the voice of the enemy inside of you tell you you’re not good enough, that you don’t have the educational, spiritual, or physique to be the thing God has given you the vision you to be. Stop asking for others approvals about what they think about your vision. Stop questioning whether or not you have the time or money to do such a thing. Stop saying that people would judge you. Stop telling yourself you’re not good enough at public speaking or writing to put yourself out there. You will never need the permission or go ahead from anyone but God to go out and do something to further the kingdom. If it’s a God given vision/calling, He will align the people in your life to pay for it, to arrange it, to make it happen. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline” -2 Timothy 1:7

Be assured that God give you power to be the person you need to be, to strengthen the areas that you’re not good at. Depend on Him, let him build you into a better public speaker, let Him bring the finances together, let Him give you the people you need to encourage you, let Him bring that special someone into your life. You can try all you want, but you cannot get around destiny. Your destiny is to be a world changer for the kingdom, God wants to turn you from a nobody into a somebody, all you have to do is let him. Stop fighting it, get on your knees and let him take control. He will never fail you and will arm you will nothing more and nothing less than you need. He will meet your every need to change this world! Don’t be changed by the world, be a world changer!

“And Jesus said unto them … , “If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to younder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you.”
Romans 1:17

“Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Then he climbed into the boat with them, and the wind died down. They were completely amazed”
Mark 6:51

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Proverbs 3:5-6
