I couldn’t help but think of the robot in the series Lost in Space
as I read this chapter.
People walk in darkness.
People have lost hope.
People are going to die.
And they are online.
“More people will log onto blogs, Facebook, and Twitter this Sunday than will go to church. More people will meet the person they are going to marry online than will likely meet at the church barbecue. And more people will share their joys, heartbreak, and revelations via status updates than will see the help of a counselor or a pastor this year.” ~@stickyJesus
We have the Light.
We have the Hope.
We have the Life.
We need to be online.
“It’s your responsibility to influence the online conversation and to tell a clicking, texting, searching generation that they can’t Google their eternal life.” ~stickyJesus
Danger, Will Robinson, danger!
This mission field is littered with lies.
That we can’t make a difference.
That nobody is listening.
That we are wasting our time.
This land is “heaving with darkness.”
And the enemy lies in wait.
To attack our thoughts.
To silence our words.
To suck our time.
To destroy relationships.
To swallow us in a cyber pit.
To. Hurt. Us.
“Studies show that our culture is literally living online, which is breeding serious problems. Excessive Internet use can weaken family bonds, create and feed online addictions such as gambling and shopping, increase emotional distress, and inhibit healthy socialization skills.” ~@stickyJesus
This is war, and we need to dress appropriately (Colossians 3: 12-14), put on our cyberarmor (Ephesians 6:10-17) and frisk our thoughts (Philippians 4:8.)
Energy cell exhausted!
We need to connect with Him before we connect with others.
To stay in His Word.
To stay plugged in to Him.
To trust Him to change us and others.
To periodically unplug, go digitally dark, and recharge.
And let Him fill us.
To spill Him.
