Sharing the Gospel in This Modern World

I read a post this morning called “Mother Angelica’s Role in My Reversion to Catholicism.” It’s an inspiring story of a man who found his way back to the Lord with the help of the Catholic television show, EWTN. Reading the story did not only make me feel joyous, but also caused me to think about how the Gospel of Christ is being shared in this modern world.

Unlike the early followers of Christ who had to walk on foot across deserts or sail across dangerous oceans just to share the love and grace of Jesus, modern-day Christians are blessed with technology and methods that can make gospel-sharing easier and more far-reaching. How many of us are actually doing our part in spreading the good news of salvation? How many of us are actually obeying the command of Jesus to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”?

Each of us is called to share the Gospel, first of all through our lives and secondly by talking about it to others. With the technology in our hands, we can easily spread the love of Jesus to others.

Remember that we will only be going home until all the world has heard of the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. “And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14) Don’t you want to go home?

  1. Your three questions are very pointed, Erin.

    If each Catholic can ‘catch’ one, the present number 1.8 billion would double.

    Unfortunately, we made the technology ‘self-centred’, and not pointing to Christ.

    When we reflect at a deeper level, it is Christ Himself conquering the hearts of men and women of every generation, and for every generation the only topmost topic is CHRIST.

    Thanks for the post, Erin.

    • Prasad glad you enjoyed the post. I agree that many are more self-centered with their use of technology. Certainly I am not perfect, but I try my hardest to use technology to spread the word of God. Thanks for your comment.
