I Can Do It?

by jeremy

What can I do?

How do I (with my involvement) keep from thwarting the work of LORD yet remain actively engaged in His work?

“Trust in the LORD with all of your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths.  Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.  It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.” – Proverbs 3:5-8

Actively Seek HIM and Pray!

“Answer me quickly, O LORD!  My spirit fails!  Hide not your face from me, lest I be like those who go down to the pit.  Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust.  Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.” – Psalm 143:7-8

I know that these answers may seem to be oversimplified.  There is a reason for that…the LORD.  He made it simple (does not mean easy) for a reason.  In it’s simplicity I still frequently mess this up.

FOLLOW, BELIEVE & OBEY HIM!

Lord, I thank you for you patience, mercy, faithfulness, steadfast love, and for the promised and consistent help of the Holy Spirit.  Praise and Glory to Your Name!

As a minister one extremely easy tool I have found to reach the congregation is facebook, the popular social networking website.

Because of the overwhelming popularity of this site among students and adults, here are four features I’ve found for using this site to effectively communicate with those individuals.

  1. MESSAGES – This is a nice feature that allows you to communicate with the people that come through your ministry.  It is quick and easy.  All you have to remember is a face or name rather than a ridiculous email address (ilikebrowndogsinthefall@relevantcollegeministry.com)
  2. GROUPS - This feature allows you to create your specific group (ministry name) on their website.  When people “join” the group, facebook links them to the others in the group.  This provides an opportunity for connection with fellow believers.  It also provides a bit of advertising to the group.  When someone joins a group on facebook, the site notifies every one of your “friends” that you have joined that group.  Therefore, it helps promote your ministry.
  3. EVENTS – Another cool and useful tool on facebook!  This feature allows you to create an “event” and promote it on their site.  This can be used to announce a concert, to promote a Bible study, or whatever your ministry is doing.  Not only can you post events but you can also send out virtual invitations to everyone of your “friends.”  (They can invite their friends and their friends’ friends)  This saves a ton on postage and effort on getting the word out.  A definite plus for busy schedules!
  4. NOTES – This feature allows you to share your thoughts with your “friends.”  It is a cool way to communicate what the Lord is doing in your life, the life of others, or in your ministry.  Note posting is also a cool way to publish a little “devotional” for individuals to read.  When you post it, every one of your “friends” are notified.

An added and extremely important feature is…

IT IS FREE! A free tool for you to use to reach an enormous amount of people…It cannot get any better than that!
Enjoy using this tool, and let me know of other innovative ways you use facebook.
