What is it and what's the point of a social network?
For the world: it's a way to know different people, know new friends and even getting into a relationship with those people, for others it's their world! They can be who ever they want virtually, be what they can't be personally. Social networks are so active in a persons life that they appear to even have two lives, one virtually, where they create their families virtually (husband, wife, friends, family, etc) and even manage to maintain their family in real life (where in reality they're not satisfied.) The more popular they are on social networks, the more fulfilled and happier they feel but it's only temporary and not real.
For the children of God: it's a way of not losing touch with those that helped us on our spiritual journey of faith, and to help each other out, keeping in touch no matter the distance. It's also a way to keep in touch with family and friends that live far away who need to know about Jesus.
Social networks can be greatly used after the moment we realize that our life with God comes in first place. And if your life with God comes in first place, only people that'll add to your spiritual life will be on your social networks, right? Unfortunately this has not happened in a lot of profiles of those who call themselves Christian, they want to have this double-life people in the world have… their friends lists usually have: ex-boyfriends, ex-friends of the world, people who only post things with curse words, people who only talk about sex, who slept with a lot of people at parities etc. This is the worst! Sometimes you keep people because you have this idea, "Oh, but I want to win souls for Jesus!" But HAVE you won them? Or has the opposite happened? I'll go even farther… There are some people who have two profiles, one of a Godly person and another of the world! What for? Why deceive ourselves?
During the purpose of the Fast of Daniel we have received + of God inside of us and that is priceless! For many it was really difficult to achieve. And we also know that many end up losing this due to their profile friends who want nothing to do with God. Perhaps you say, "Mrs. Gracy, it's not that bad! They're just there, I don't even talk to them…." But just the fact of them being there, by posting your statuses, you'll also be up to date on what's going on in their life… How will it add to your life? Friend, get your self out of this trap!
Today you'll decide on your social networks, make a prayer, ask God for direction and don't act by emotion, right after, remove all the people whom you do not know, all those who made up part of your past one day who don't bring back good memories, ex boyfriends, ex-everything. Also, if you have two profiles, one of a Christian and one for the world, remove it! Have your faith defined! Of course, only if you want to keep having + of God. Make a cleaning in your contacts list with no emotion and definitely by faith! Have zeal regarding your relationship with God and afterwards comment here the amount of people you removed, it'll be proof of this task.
If you want to keep having + of God it's necessary to empty yourself of the world! I want to see who'll be courageous… If you're not, forgive me but you're not ready for this training… If you are, do what you have to do and come back to this blog on the 21st .
