How Efficient Are We?

Today, I am attempting my first ever blog entry from my Blackberry, the revolutionary device that makes me more efficient...or does it? I just finished reading "To The Golden Shore," the biography of Adoniram Judson, the first American baptist missionary. I was both inspired and convicted as I read of the life and witness of this great man of God, but it was not only his outstanding faith that blew me away. Adoniram Judson accomplished more in his life than most of us colud ever dream to accomplish, and that was in a day before computers and mass transit. All of this caused me to question what I am doing with the many conveniences placed at my disposal.

----

The fact that I now understand is that it is not the device or technology that make a man efficient, but rather the efficient man or woman who takes full advantage of technology. God has blessed us with technology beyond the wildest imagination of thinkers even fifty years ago, but what are we doing for the Kingdom of God with what we have been given? In other words, of what value is this Blackberry if it does not enable me to reach more people for the cause of Christ. And to you as you read this, because of the computer with which you have accessed this page, you have a tool with which you can impact the world for Christ. So, go forth, be efficient with your gadgets and tools of convenience and change your world with the love of Christ.

Very true! We have to change with the times, but our goal should be to proclaim the name of Christ and reach as many as possible with our technology!
