Christians Spreading the Gospel with Blogging

In Acts 1:8, Jesus told his disciples and us, that when we accept Him, the Holy Spirit will help us to witness to others: "... you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." The Internet makes it possible to witness for Christ to the uttermost parts of the earth.

I encourage Christians to use the Internet to spread the Gospel. Blogging, short for "Web log," is a great way to do this. Blogging basically involves writing short, diary-type entries on any topic, that one shares with the entire world. If you allow ads on your blog, you can earn money as well. Google has a great service that I use, called, which permits one to create a free blog and restrict ads to specific topics, such as Christianity.

Last year, the U.S. morning news program, Good Morning America, did a really good story on how one can use a blog to spread a message and earn money.

I currently have three blogs, the one you're currently reading, as well as a blog about the writing process and self-publishing tips, called Write On, Right On, Write On!, and Helmet of Salvation, a blog where I offer my opinions on topics of interest to Christians.

Have a blessed day, by spreading the Good News about Jesus!

Your Brother in Christ,
