What a Facebook Friend I am to Jesus

Two men went onto the internet to status update/pray.

One, a prominent emergent/reformed/fundamentalist Christian leader said:

“Lord I thank thee that I am not as other men or women who run churches larger than mine.

For example I…(strike out which does not apply)

1. Publicly affirm my support for egalitarianism/LGBT rights/Palestine.

2. Confidently assert my Reformed credentials years before it became cool.

3. Never mention sex inside marriage from the pulpit.

4. Scoff at video link up sermons and meet for church in a traditional building/small pub/my house.

The other man would not lift up his finger to Twitter, but said, “Lord have mercy on me a sinner.”

I tell you, this man, rather than the other,  went home justified. For everyone who exalts himself on Facebook/blogs/Twitter/online will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.

There is no guarantee that Jesus will return in our desired timeframe. Yet we have no reason to be anxious, because even if the timeframe is not guaranteed, the outcome is! We don’t have to waste energy being anxious; we can put it to better use.
