Jesus calls us Christians to be His light in this dark world. It’s imperative that we shine that light everywhere. We have today the power of social media to reach out to the lost, to the agnostics and the atheists who are using social media to knock Christianity.
Recently I got into a discussion with @GodlessAtheist on Twitter. His regular post (I’ve seen it more than once) is:
To most Christians, the Bible is like a software license. Don’t read it, just scroll to the bottom and click “I agree. #teamjesus #atheism
He posts with the #teamejesus tag to get us mad, but we must respond with Love. We need to prove him wrong. We have Truth on our side.
The challenge is that they don’t think that they are lost.
Don’t be afraid to quote scripture. Remember the Word is our sword which is the only part of the armor of God that is an offensive weapon rather than defensive like the shield & helment. We also have the Holy Spirit in us to tell us what to say.
Here are two devotionals that convinced me to use the tools I have to reach the lost for Jesus. We may not win them right away, but if we plant that seed….
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:20-21
These #atheists are crying out for attention. We must respond with the love and light of Jesus Christ. It’s What Jesus Would Do.
And don’t forget to pray for these folks.
To quote the last phrase in today’s Our Daily Bread:
To lead others out of the darkness of sin, let them see your light.
Then don’t forget Jesus’ words:
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” ~ Matthew 5:13-16
