Mobile Technology (Part 8, Conclusion)
Press Star For God
Jesus said to her, 'Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father... But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth.'
John 4:21-24 (NKJV)
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things.
Isaiah 52:7 (NKJV)
If the earth is covered by mobile technology, if mobile technology is used for evil, if evil men will fall by their own devices, if devices are no more than tools, if a tool can be a hammer, then God's people must hammer His point home. They must press star for God--again and again.
What does that star look like on a two-inch screen? It looks like a Bible app. It looks like a positive text. It looks like a great picture. It looks like God.
When Jesus spoke with the woman at the well, He made it clear that true worshippers will not be confined to holy places. Because God's Holy Place was coming to them. His Name is the Holy Spirit, and He is mobile. Can He travel through technology?
God is the Creator. He is the Father of invention. His Spirit can travel whenever, wherever and however He commissions--even on the worldwide web.
Consider Isaiah 52:7. Consider those feet to be yours. Consider yourself climbing the mountains of arts, entertainment and media--with a cell phone in your hand: a reasonable thought in our 21st century. Now consider yourself an ambassador of Christ.
You've got good news to share. You proclaim peace. You bring good tidings of good things--through your face, your actions, your words, your talent--and mobile technology. That's how you press star for God.
