An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Would Jesus Write a Blog?

(John 14:12 KJV)  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

We are all familiar with the phrase WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) which has a line of bracelets and such.  Often it is an interesting concept.  We know that Jesus came at the best time:
(Galatians 4:4 KJV)  But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
But what if He came today.  How would He communicate?  Would He have a TV ministry?  Would He use voice mail?  Would He write a blog?  I think the answer is “None of the above.”  The Roman world had ways to communicate.   They were crude by our standards but worked when the fastest mode of transportation was a horse.  Jesus used none of them.  Instead He used the time tested method of teaching and preaching.  He trained a few men, promised them the Holy Spirit and left them to do their job.  I think He works the same way today.

But “all of the above” are being used to proclaim Jesus.  Which makes me wonder if that is part of what Jesus was talking about in this verse.  I have heard that it refers to the Holy Spirit and how spirit filled followers can be in more places than the physical Jesus.  But what if this was prophecy that included the printing press, radio, and the internet.  Sin is often the corrupt and selfish perversion of something God designed for good.  The internet certainly has its share of perversion.  But by using it for His glory, we can sanctify it or allow Him to sanctify it through our righteous use.

Would Jesus write a blog?  I don’t think so, but maybe He wants you to do so.
