Facebook Live

We have been doing a bit of an experiment over the last few weeks with Facebook Live. Facebook has made a feature available that we can put our services online for free. This is a great tool to be able to show folks what is happening at Hopewell on Sunday mornings.

Going live like this is not a way to encourage folks to stay home, rather it is doing a couple of other things. First, we realize that there are some people who would love to be with us but are either sick or out of town and cannot be here in person. Second, many recent studies have shown that people will check out your church multiple times before walking through your doors. Going live allows us to meet both of those needs.

Hopewell Church desires to spread the Good News of Jesus to the world. We are called to be light to a dark world. If putting our worship service on the internet reaches one single person with the Gospel, the effort is worth it.

As followers of Christ, we are called to be witnesses of what Jesus has done in us and for us. To point people to Christ, we don’t need to be able to explain every theological issue or answer every question. What we must do is explain what we have witnessed in our own lives through the cross and the resurrection of the Savior. Even better is that we don’t have to rely on ourselves alone to do this. Jesus said, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

So, with that said, what are you doing to be a witness for Christ? Are you going to any lengths to share His love and grace that has happened in your own personal life? If not, why not start today? It can start with a simple statement that you can easily say to someone you come across during your day, “I’m wondering if I could take three minutes of your time to tell you about why I love Jesus?” And then, give them an elevator conversation about your Savior. Who knows what God might do with that little conversation. Give it a try.
