One of my son’s teachers was lamenting the way he communicates with his students. “Emails are passe! I have better success using Snapchat!”
It is a remarkable sign of the times and evidence of the rapidity of technological change. It has only been about 20 years since I have been using email on a regular basis and already it is outmoded or replaced by other technologies such as texting and other forms of social media. Who knows what the next few years will introduce? Holograms? Or maybe something that has not even been invented yet!
Even the Word of God is being distributed by newer technologies. MP3 players, powered by solar batteries, are now programmed in hundreds of different languages, embedded with the spoken Bible.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.
Isaiah 40:8 (ESV)
Whether you hear the Good News of Jesus Christ through an online program or MP3 player, read it in a book or email, or view it in a movie or hologram, you have a choice and decision to make. If you confess and repent of our sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will have have your sins forgiven, salvation, and eternal life.
Technology will continue to change and advance the means by which we communicate God’s Word. But although our methods of communication may change, the message remains constant. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
