In the time of Moses, part of the command to the Israelites concerning listening to and obeying the Word of God stated that:
8 “You shall bind them [the Lord’s commands] as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:8, 9)
If these commands were to be given today for the first time, then the section above would probably read something like:
“You shall post them on your Facebook wall and twitter account. You shall blog about them and record them on podcasts...”
This is simply because with time, mediums of communication have advanced.
But even with time, the Word of God hasn’t changed, and the same commission to spread the Word hasn’t as well! Hence it is upon us as Christians, and especially those who claim to be leaders, to carry out Moses’ command to continue spreading the Word using these modern forms of communication.
In his book, ‘The Conviction to Lead’, Al Mohler states, “Real communication is [also] happening in the digital world... Leaders have a message, and should be ready to use every appropriate platform and technology to get it out to others.”
Mohler also states that, “The leadership that matters most is convictional - deeply convictional.”
Hence my blog! These are my convictions!
