God’s Not Dead: Social Media Engagement

by Joe Handley

Rusty CoffeltThis past year, a friend made the following Facebook post: “God is not dead. His son died so each of us could have eternal life if we accept him. Do you accept the gift he has given you?”

Pretty bold!

It reminded me of a post I made for EvangelVision on how effective I found social media for sharing my faith, especially via simply praying for people.

As you can see from my friend’s post, several ‘liked’ his comment and a few commented. This capture was only a few hours after his posting, too. It was amazing to see the responses flow from his post! I thought, “How creative! This is a unique way to share your faith.” Beyond this, people respond to things like this!

Paul shares with the Corinthians, “Since we have such a hope, we are very bold” (2 Cor. 3:12). Sharing like this really isn’t that hard. It just takes a little courage. I’ve been surprised when I walk in my hope like Paul shares here. People respond far more positively than I imagined. Read the full chapter in Corinthians and see all that God is doing. You’ll be inspired!

How about you? What occurs when you share your faith like this? Have you tried? Give it shot and let me know what happens!
