It’s been only a month that I have joined this medium of blogging. I was inevitably flabbergasted by its popular use by countless people. I have tried to blog two years ago and I thought I knew what I was going to do but It turned out to be utterly impossible for various reasons (I won’t state them). I am under impression that this thing is really utilized by a lot of people, Christians and non-Christians, around many parts of the world with different motives.
Today, I have an indelible question on my mind – and it seems like I can’t get over it. What do Christians blog about? I like to talk to people directly and explicitly – I feel like it makes more sense than talking ABOUT people. If YOU are a Christian, what are YOUR posts about? It really grieves my soul when I come across posts where Christians tell what they have had on their breakfast – Do we care? You write about what this man told that man on your so-called favorite TV show – Really? Do we care? Like the world, you are updating us when season 5 of “so and so” HELL-WOOD series is coming out – Do we care? Interestingly enough, you write about it as though it’s the most interesting and fascinating thing in the world to know. shame. That is a waste of time friend.
Our minds are very sophisticated and over the years, I’ve realized that people don’t like to be busy – People so much like the feeling they get when they know others know they are busy or involved in something. Can you make time for God in your life? It’s URGENT.
They are sooo many people around the world who are longing to read a message you can share with them on here. Can you give it a thought? Can you tell me how I, Charles got on your blog? Did you plan that a certain young man from a village of a tiny but crowded country (Rwanda) located in Eastern Africa will be reading your posts? DO YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH YOUR POSTS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST – yes your 200 or 300 words – CAN IMPACT OTHERS? Don’t you have an inexorable desire to see Jesus touching many lives?
I know some of you may NOT like what I am saying but remember this: “Bitter herbs” are good for health.
Believe it or not – Someone somewhere may stumble on your posts and you never know how they may impact them.
Here is my bottom line:
When It’s all been said and done – all our treasures, diplomas, famous websites, jobs and confidence – will mean NOTHING. ONLY what we’ve done for love’s reward will STAND the test of time.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
