Paul is literally in chains for the gospel. I have to wonder if I too am in chains for the gospel, at least in figurative ways. I have given up things for God, which actually in the big picture is for me because it’s what’s good for me. I’m in God’s chains in a way, but this is a good chain, not like Paul’s chains. But Paul see his chains as good too.
Anyways, today, after meeting with my accountants, I’m once again reminded of some of my situations that are less than ideal. It doesn’t matter what happens, I know that it will eventually become something I can testify for God.
Paul is a preacher. I’m hesitant to say that I’m a preacher, as I’m not like an ordained preacher, but all Christians are called to spread the gospel. That is “the vision” given to all of us through the Word. This is why Paul sees his chains as a good thing, because it’s helping to spread the gospel. Even the people who are preaching with the wrong motives are still preaching Christ.
I’ve made couple videos of my QT now, and I’ve joked with some people that I want to become a youtube star and if I do, I think that’s be fun and interesting, but that’s not why I’ve stepped into this territory. I see “the internet” as my place of ministry. One of the questions that was asked at last year’s NYBC was “where’s your place of ministry?” Everyone should be spreading the gospel. Where are you spreading the gospel. My answer in two part, was with those who are around me, and the internet. This is when I started posting my all of my QT’s every day as a testimony to God. This in now starting to advance to new media in the form of videos. As I make the videos, I should focus more on the message, and not so much the technical side of the video production, but at the same time, I don’t want to get tied down to perfecting the message, because then I will never post anything. I’ll just do what I can, with what I can, with what I have, and if God uses it in some way, I’d be happy.
