Could you imagine if all you ever heard was Jesus?
There are over 250 million proclaimed Christians in the United States. I’m not going to debate that number (even though I could) but use it to show something quite shocking. Stats on the web show that in order for a topic to trend on Twitter, it needs approximately 30 tweets every 5 seconds. If approximately 500,000 people tweeted once per day something about Jesus, he would never leave number 1. Jesus would be the most talked about (trending) topic on Twitter every single day. And that’s only 500,000. Could you imagine if 1 million? 100 million? Instead of Jesus, we get trending topics like #20ThingsIDontLike or #CyberMonday. Those are just today’s most recent trends. Other days, it’s the name of the latest celebrity to get pregnant, or divorced, or both. For a while it was all politics. Food probably lands there from time to time. It is just ridiculous to think that anything other than Jesus would be number 1.
He is the Savior of the World, your Savior if you call yourself a Christian. Through none other will you receive the eternal security that you so dearly hold onto.
So how about you personally? What do you talk about? What trends in your life? As Christians, we are called to glorify God in all we do (1 Cor 10:31). Are we glorifying God when we spend so much time talking about the things we do? I know I’m not! It’s time I examined my life and so should you. The examination has to take place every day. I ask you join me in praying a simple prayer now…..
“Father forgive me for the time I have wasted on selfish and futile things. May I always live to honor and glorify you”.
Whether it’s Twitter, Facebook, the dinner table, the grocery store line, your job or school, it’s time Jesus is trending number 1 in your life.
