Today I wanted to start off by saying thanks. Thanks for being a part of what the Lord is doing through #ShareJesus. It’s incredible that we have over 500,000 views of our #ShareJesus videos to date. The point of this project though isn’t about view counts of the videos; it’s about real people encountering God in new ways. You guys are doing a great job of sharing Jesus. I love hearing your awesome stories and feedback about the #ShareJesus videos, whether it how its how you are using them (like showing them in classrooms,) how they’ve personally inspired you, or how your friends and family are using the videos to encounter Jesus.
But perhaps, you haven’t really jumped into #ShareJesus just yet. It’s not too late to get started. Remember the goal of #ShareJesus isn’t to just watch a video, but to find opportunities to evangelize. Commit to sharing Jesus this Lent.
I have talked to people who have said to me, “I am loving the videos, but I don’t do social media.” That’s really okay. The point of #ShareJesus isn’t to convince people that they need to get a Twitter or Facebook account. You don’t need a social media account to evangelize your family, friends, and neighbors. If you don’t have social media, I want to encourage you to use our taking it offline suggestions. You’ve got plenty of opportunities to #ShareJesus that don’t involve social media.
In today’s #ShareJesus, Sarah Swafford talks about discovering a love that’s greater and richer than anything you’ve ever felt. What do you when the God high is gone?
Evangelize today by being social with the Gospel. #ShareJesus today on Social Media. Aim for at least two posts today: One with the video, one without always using #ShareJesus.
Let the Holy Spirit guide you in sharing Jesus.
The Good News is really good. God loves you perfectly and completely. It’s a love worth sharing.
On Social Media today consider these questions:
- What does it mean to you that God loves you?
- How do you believe in God in difficult times? What sustains you?
Don’t forget on Facebook, please share the video from our Facebook page. This way you’ll get a lot more views than if you share a Youtube link on Facebook.
From Twitter please use the Youtube link http://youtu.be/X6mc_iiA6-s with your posts and don’t forget to RT our tweets.
Taking it Offline
- Take some time to pray about what it means that God loves you.
- Reach out to someone you know who is going through a difficult time.
- Write down your story about how you have encountered Jesus. Pray for an opportunity to share it with someone this week. Look for an opportunity to do this.
- Continue to pray for those who you want to share the Lord with over Lent.
God has done great things. He is doing big things. Continue to be a part of it. #ShareJesus today.
