Posting for God

In Mark 16:15-16  we read ,"And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.  “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned." These are the words of Jesus just before He ascended into Heaven.

Today, in light of the New Evangelization started by Pope John Paul II, we have more access and more ways to spread the good news. On platforms such as Facebook and Twitter I have seen many positive examples of  spreading the "Good News".  Unfortunately, I also see examples of people posting things contradictory of God's laws.

How we spend our days here on Earth directly affects how we will spend eternity.  Are we continuing Jesus' mission or are we sabotaging it?  We should ask ourselves and answer honestly, "Would God approve?" When we advocate for things such as abortion, contraception, and gay marriage, who's mission are we promoting? God's? Or the Enemy's? Our personal beliefs do not compare to the laws of God. His ways are far above our ways.

So when you see a Facebook or Twitter post, think before sharing. Is this in line with God's teachings? Or is this furthering an agenda contradictory to God? Will we be building up God's Kingdom? Or attempting to tear it down? We are here to serve God. Will that post serve God?
