Top Five Reasons I Post about Jesus on my Facebook Status

>> Monday, April 12, 2010

I'm often asked why I post about Jesus so often on my Facebook Status. Well...a bunch of reasons, but I've scribbled down the biggest ones, counting down:

#5
When I type it for all to see, it becomes even more real to me.

#4
He leads me to a verse or a thought about Him that I have to share. After all, it is GOOD news!

#3
Feedback: Every "Amen" encourages me...every question challenges me...every opposing view sends me back to the Word or to prayer...

#2
It keeps me humble. Almost every time I post about Jesus, I lose a "friend."

#1
The status box asks, "What's on your mind?" And well, Jesus is almost always on my mind. When He isn't on my mind, it's not really worth my time--our yours! ;)

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love & of self-discipline. So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord...by the power of God, who has saved us & called us to a holy life--not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose & grace."
2 Timothy 1:7-9a




*** I'm also at the Internet Cafe tomorrow (Tuesday). Please stop by if you can... "Getting There"

Good on you Laura for letting you're light shine in the darkness.

Great way of keeping Jesus foremost in your thoughts too :)

Thanks for not only sharing Jesus, but also for sharing your reasons as they may serve to make us bolder in being ambassadors for Christ.

Isn't it sad that you would lose a friend over something like that.
I thought about that when I posted my latest giveaway, but you can't care. Jesus is who we are and if people don't like it then that's okay. Just the word Jesus offends people.
Just know that I love ya AND your FB status'.
Have a fabulous day my friend.

Keep livin' your faith outloud! I've lost "friends" as well; so has Christ. He takes the offense every time.

Love you.

Sorry I don't facebook. I love your reasons though. If you lose a "friend" because of Jesus...think of your reward...and they weren't a friend to begin with.
Thanks for sharing. I'm your newest follower and I invite you to look over my blog and perhaps become one yourself
