The words of Isaiah 40:9 have been a very real picture:
“You who bring good news, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; Say to the towns,’Here is your God!’”
God was telling them to use what he had provided to accomplish his purposes. Use the high mountains to shout “Here is your God!”
During our time as God’s ambassador’s, God has given us the gift of the Internet: social networks (Facebook, Twitter), simple websites (WordPress, Blogger), video and audio (YouTube, Vimeo), inexpensive phone (Skype).
God is telling us:
- Use these things God has provided
- Lift up your voice. Be bold. Be “loud” in embracing these opportunities.
- Do not be afraid
- Show God to everyone
As one church leader said, inhabit the digital universe with a believing heart and to help give a soul to the endless flow of communications on the Internet.
