Would Jesus have a Blog?

July 29, 2008

Isaiah 52:7 ESV
(7) How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns."

Would Jesus have a Blog if He was alive today? I wonder about that sometimes. Why did God pick such a time as He did to send His son to earth. Mass communications was not then what it is now. Jesus could have easily have been seen by all the world with our TV networks they way they are. He could have flown jets, cars and other things that would have gotten Him from place to place a lot quicker then foot or donkey power.

On the other hand we have grown into a people too civilized to have a death on a cross. I guess He could have had a lethal injection but that somehow does not convey the same suffering for us.

Back to the question at hand. Yes, I think He would. He never lost a chance to tell the 'good news' as Isaiah calls it. He would have taken every chance He could have to tell others about the Kingdom of Heaven.

That now brings another question. If we are the body of Christ, and Jesus told others the 'good news', what are you doing to tell the good news?
