Complexity of Modern-day Christianity (Simplified)

How should we respond to refugees, politics, the fallacies on Facebook, my misguided christian friends on social media, my non-christian friends social media, and so on. I’m sure as a bible believing christian you have an answer for all those things. What to say and how to say it. (oh yeah this one, how to navigate the misery of being a single christian) I’m sure what we have to say is valid. But have we over complicated it all? Christianity was not meant to give you the ability to simply be right. If you can win an argument, what have you lost in return? Are we in relationship with Jesus so we can be right on Facebook? What did christians do before Facebook? I know for a fact that I served a lot more than I cared how people responded to a post. Stop posting about what christians should be doing and go be one. (I would put an exclamation point, but that might seem harsh) Stop asking for permission from your followers, and walk in authority from your Father.

John 14 (read it)

Stop worrying about whether or not you have a place. You have been left with the gift of peace of mind and heart. (peace of heart is for the singles) Know Jesus and know the Father. Do good because of your love for the Father, not to be better than the next christian. This is christianity, know Jesus and be Jesus. You should be known for your love, not your knowledge. Be willing to ask anything. You are born to do greater works than status updates. Let your platform be a place of testimony. He has revealed Himself to you and not to the world. Now He lives in you, so reveal yourself to the world and your are revealing Jesus. Share your story not your opinions. I love how this chapter ends. Jesus knew his mission. Even knowing the difficulties of what was set before Him, He still set His mind to do it. That is peace of mind. Knowing what is before you and trusting God through it. Even unto death. “Come, let’s be going.” Let us be known for going, not for knowing and doing nothing except updating our friends on what we know.
