There are several religions in the world, with some of them dating as back as centuries ago. It might be correct to say that some of the world’s renowned religions have a lot in common. Christianity and Islam, for instance, share a lot together. However, there is one thing that separates Christianity from all the other religions, including Islam, in which they have a lot in common. Christians base their salvation, not on themselves, i.e. on anything that they do, but entirely on the work of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Following His death and life, Jesus has acquired salvation for everyone who believed in Him. This explains why Christians are fond of stating the fact that salvation is by grace through faith. And that it is a gift that no one should boast. The fact that Christians do not count on their works to gain salvation explains why it stands out from the other world’s religions. And after one has acquired this salvation through their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, they are commanded to spread the Good News to others who have not yet heard about the saving works of God through His son Jesus Christ.
Evangelism is something that has been going on for ages, since its start by the apostles after the ascension of Jesus in their sight. More and more faithful servants have risen ever since. And just like the apostles, nowadays we have missionaries who have dedicated their life in ensuring that the message of the Lord Jesus Christ is heard all over the world. Fortunately, with the advanced technology, more and more opportunities and platforms to reach out to the masses are being realized. For instance, we now have the internet, where one can reach individuals irrespective of where they are provided they have internet connectivity. This wonderful opportunity brought into life Christian blogging, which has been influential in today’s world. Christian blogging is a great initiative considering the number of benefits associated with it. The following are a few examples. First of all, Christian blogging offers a good opportunity for anyone to share the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. A lot of people from various corners of the world have been reached by this platform.
The other amazing thing about Christian blogging is that it can glorify God. Christians are called to give God the glory in all that they do. And this include anything that they post online. There are quite a number of Christian blogs that are not only edifying, but also give God the glory that He truly deserve. Blogging can also help Christians to build their own communities. Just as there are a number of online communities of people with a common interest, there can also be a group of Christians using the same platform to encourage and exhort one another. And finally, Christian blogging, even though, should serve the core purpose of preaching the Good News, it can also be a source of income.
