Social Networking and the Gospel

Over the past several days, I've done my best to increase my presence on the social networking world. Social Networking is rampant in our society today, and over the past several months I've slowly fell off that wagon. To be honest, the constant narcism of social networking can often be a drag, because there are far to many status updates and tweets that just aren't worth reading. My hope is to better use social networking not for the promotion of my name or reputation, but for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My desire is to pack as much Gospel truth into 140 characters as I can for the encouragement of the church and the advancement of the Gospel. Now by no means will I be consistent in this or even succeed. Don't get me wrong, status updates concerning whats going on in your life can be good and beneficial, however I don't want to find my updates centered around the mirror of individualism, but centered on Jesus. I know how sinful I am and how easily I can become consumed with myself, but hopefully by God's grace, this is not my motive and desire in the age social networking.  My desire is to glorify Christ. In this pursuit of using Social Networking for God's glory, I hope to begin to blog regularly here at justindeeter.wordpress.com. Feel free to subscribe it to your RSS Feed.
