Sharing God's Good News is not a suggestion...it's a directive. Like so many other areas in a Christian's life, the motive of our heart is the key.
Do we write and speak to draw attention to ourselves or to God's message of deliverance? For His is the only worthy message, and everyone needs to hear it, even those who do not yet know Christ.
But He doesn't expect us to start from scratch. Our message builds upon the foundation He's already laid, extending it to those in our circles. Our goal is to expand those circles. Marketing does that.
Can't God reach people without us? Oh, yes, but He invites us into to experience the thrill of helping those He gifted us to serve. So they are blessed, and so are we. Isn't He wonderful?
You and I are called to stand up in a crowded space--online and offline--and proclaim that which we know: God sacrificed His Son to pay for mankind's sins. Yours, mine, and everyone else's, for no matter what we've done or what's been done to us, He can make us clean and free again. Magnificent!
Marketing helps them find you--and Him--in the crowd.
For what value is your message (really, God's message in you) if no one hears it?
