Many of you will know that I am a bit of a Facebook addict! It can be really useful when you want to spread the word about something like a road closure or a special event.
As I said, it is great for spreading the word.... That should also read 'THE WORD'.... Each day I receive texts from scripture which I can then pass on and share with others.... Examples recently have included....
...But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed.
They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary;
they will walk and not grow weak.( Isaiah 40 : 31)
....I pray that your love will keep on growing more and more, together with true knowledge and perfect judgment, so that you will be able to choose what is best. Then you will be free from all impurity and blame on the Day of Christ. Your lives will be filled with the truly good qualities which only Jesus Christ can produce, for the glory and praise of God.( Philippians 1: 9-11)
Please keep sharing 'THE WORD' anyway you choose...
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.(Hebrews 4:12)
However, when it comes to communication with God, The Lord, Our Father, is just a prayer away.....we need no modern technology to keep in touch; he does not have a mobile phone, is not on Facebook or Twitter and his line is never engaged.....
