Well, we all have a lot of extra time on our hands these days, at least I expect most of us do. The natural thing is to spend more time on social media, advancing your cause, getting your message out there, and “encouraging” the masses.
I’m that guy too, so as not to be overly offensive. I’ve had my time as a keyboard warrior, where I joyfully went to battle every day to rid the world of Arminians, Easy Believism “Christians, and the like…
I have decided that I’m over it, but really what I want to encourage you today, is to live like we’ve been called to live. If you profess Christ, then live the life you were called to live.
Standing for truth is important, Jesus stood for truth, Paul stood for truth, Luther stood for truth, but most of us aren’t Luther’s. The point I desire to make, is that there is a balance to these things. Is it unimportant to be right? No, not necessarily, but I don’t want to compromise to the shame of Christ. He didn’t call me out of darkness to the glorious light of his gospel that I get to be a Raging Bull.
I’m going to begin practicing “Social Media Distancing” not because I don’t care about people, or what people have to say, it’s just that I’ve been shown that I’m really not that big of a deal. My thoughts are not that relevant. Perhaps you are different, and that’s fine, you do you…
I’ve decide I need to chill out, take care of my family, honor my employer, try to do a good job in my education, do a much better job loving my wife, the list is endless, and social media needs to be at the end of it. Thus ends my rant, carry on, and don’t forget to pray for those government officials that have some tough decisions to make.
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. – 1 Timothy 2:1-4
