Today at Belgrave South Baptist Church we commenced a new series called ‘Getting Connected’
In his message Pastor Andrew Fisher talked about ‘Social Networking’ and how with some people the more they connect via social network sites and smart phones the more disconnected they become with face to face communication. Social networking can become a place for some of us to hide. This led me to think for myself, who has numerous social networking accounts. “Do my social networking profiles match my face to face profile?”
Ephesians 4:25 says “You must stop telling lies. Tell each other the truth, because we all belong to each other in the same body.” In recovery we all belong together. We are where we are through God’s guidance and we must learn to be open and honest with each other.
We all belong together and Romans 15:5-7 tells us to live in harmony with each other, the way Christ wants us to. Because that is how we will give glory to God and that is how we will honour each other.
None of us will like everyone we come in contact with in recovery, but we are in recovery with them for a purpose. God’s purpose and whether we like it or not they are a part of our spiritual journey. We all have a part to play in recovery. We all matter in recovery. So if you are involved in ‘social networking’ I encourage you to let your social network profile be a true indication of ‘who you really are’
