Leverage Technology

October 28, 2009

I just linked my blog to my Twitter which was already linked to my Reverbnation page which also posts on Facebook.  It’s nice that we’re finally getting to where we can consolidate these tools so that the things that are supposed to save us time don’t consume so much of it.

The truth is these things are inert, no power or bias of their own.  It’s all in how we leverage it.  A few thousand years ago, the gospel flourished with sheer conviction of heart and commitment of will under the direction of the Holy Spirit.  No big buildings, no projectors, no amplifiers, no hymnals, and certainly no Twitter.  Some churches are shunning technology and they are losing out on the language of modern American culture.  Some churches are in the midst of technology orgy and are being led by the promises of ease and speed.  I’m crying out for the middle ground!  We must be lead by the Holy Spirit, driven by a love for God and a love for people, and leverage technology for the Kingdom.  Remember, technology isn’t needed (God doesn’t need anything, not me, not you, and not a smart phone), but it can be useful.

Just remember nothing can replace time with God, without faith it is impossible to please Him.  Be careful that what is good doesn’t consume so much of your time that it robs you of the best – time with God, face to face time with people, and a sheer commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Be creative this week with your “technologies” and see how you can use them for the Kingdom in ways that allow more time with God, Family, Friends, and the Mission Field you find yourself in.

    Technology is a great tool to have if you don’t let it have you.
