Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

If I tell 2 friends and they tell 2 friends and so on and so on... by Kathy

I always wonder what to write about when I guest post on Kelly’s blog.
And I always start off in one direction, and wind up going another.
This time is no different. My thoughts were  getting so rambly, I couldn’t stand it. So I went outside to pray. And like always, God came through.
Matthew 28:19  Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Many times in the New Testament, Jesus commanded, go and tell. In this verse he says go and teach.
That is a command. Go out into the world and tell and teach each and every nation.
So I got to thinking. How can I reach nations? How can I even reach my community or my county?
And I had this thought……. You are through this blog. Because of this blog of Kelly’s, I started my own. Because of this blog I have met many different people, who love Christ as much, if not more than I do.
Because of this blog and mine and yours, we are reaching many, many people. And if you take all Christian blogs, and share them with facebook friends or twitter friends, and then they tell their friends, the numbers can be astronomical!!!!!!!
Remember the old shampoo commercial? At least I think it’s shampoo (I may be wrong, I have been before), where the ad says if you tell 2 friends and they tell 2 friends and they tell 2 friends,  and so on, and so on, and the screen keeps multiplying the womans picture. Get the idea?
Technology is a great thing. We are the generation that can reach others through the internet.  Television does the same thing. Because of technology, God’s word has reached a multitude of people who never would have heard it.
 Even though there are many nations and isolated places and cultures where technology hasn’t reached, we have to keep praying that in God’s time, those people will hear his word.  I thank God for the missionaries, who go to these remote areas and proclaim his word.
In our own way, we are missionaries too.
So let’s keep on writing and telling what God has done for us. Let’s share our stories with others.
Because if we tell 2 friends and they tell 2 friends, and so on, and so on, and so on…………………………
God Bless,
