Day 29-Richmond, Virginia:
In the world that we live in today there are so many different ways that we can both receive and send information to each other no matter what your location is around the world. This is pretty remarkable, especially if you think about how in the 1800’s they hand delivered mail by horseback and it could take months for a message to arrive safely to the recipient. In a world filled with such instantaneous communication, where does God fit into our lives?
Since we have such effective communication methods that did not previously exist, it should be that much easier for the children of God to band together for one cause. There is a big difference between sharing a page on Facebook or a Bible quote to get a like, and gathering everyone together for a church function on Sunday. Some people enjoy sitting back and they believe that by superficially being on the outskirts of their faith that they are close to God. The fact of the matter is that it takes more than just the noncommittal responses to God.
In order for Jesus to be in our lives, we have to walk the walk and talk the talk, which as humans can be difficult. Be that as it may, we still have to fight the good fight and not give up or succumb to worldly pressures that say we do not need God or that He is never around when we need Him, so why bother. We do need God and it is not as hard as we think sometimes to allow Jesus to enter into hearts, mind, body, and actions.
With the technology we possess at our fingertips through Smartphones, Laptops, Tablets, etc., it should be that much easier to share God’s message with each other. Therefore, there really are no excuses for excluding God from our lives or not making the time to commit ourselves to our Father in Heaven as He is all around us waiting to hear from us. We are all one in Christ and starting today we can improve our communication with both God and each other without delay.
