Scholars and historians have speculated that one of the reasons why God chose to send His Son to planet earth in Century One is because of the Roman Road. It was through that road that news traveled all across the world rather quickly.
Today’s Roman Road, it seems to me, is the Internet. In particular, Blogs, Twitter, Google+, etc.
Information, knowledge, resources, and ideas spread quickly and widely via these modes. And sometimes they can have a viral effect, reaching thousands, even millions of people.
Yet . . . scores of Christians do not use these tools.
To my mind, every follower of Jesus should seriously consider getting on the Roman Road and use it to share what they are learning about the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s purpose, and what He’s doing.
Personally, I believe blogs are the most effective means for this. Especially for those who are motivated to see change in the Body of Christ. Of course, the new Roman Road is also useful to share Christ with those who do not know Him and are seeking to find Him (whether they realize it or not).
If you read this blog, may I encourage you to set up a Twitter account, join the new and explosive Google+, and begin a blog. Then begin sharing the things you are learning about the Lord and His purpose. Each tool is free.
Consider getting on the Roman Road. And if you’re someone who has a Twitter account, a blog, or a Google+ page, but never use it, consider activating it. And posting regularly. It just takes a few minutes each day or each week. And if you don’t have material of your own, link to other materials and resources that you find of value.
Notice the “Share” buttons on the bottom of each blog post. These are designed to make it very easily to share with others those posts that you find helpful.
And if you are a blogger (or plan to be one), I highly recommend the Standard Theme. It’s what I use for this blog. Since I’ve been using it, my traffic and readership has increased. Click here to order it.
Which parts of the new Roman Road do you use to actively spread ideas, resources, and knowledge with others?
