My Online Mission

"Honor Christ and let him be the Lord of your life.  Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope." --1 Peter 3:15

My mom, sister, and I started a new daily devotional together out of a small magazine called Devozine.  Last night started the first one and I really loved the message.  It talked about having an online mission.

Sometimes, as a home schooler, I worry that maybe I'm too sheltered.  That maybe, if I went to a public/private school I could have witnessed to more people because I'd be around more people on a daily basis...?  Does anybody else ever feel that way?

What I didn't really realize until last night was that I am already in a HUGE mission field.  Right here on the internet.  

Did you know that nearly a third of the entire world's population is online?  1,966,514,816 people.  When I saw that number in the devotional book it blew me away!
I'm not saying that a third of the world reads my blog.  Far from it, I'm sure.  Haha!  But, I'm sure people do stumble across it sometimes...just like I stumble across other sites on the web.  What do people see for the short time they're on my site? 

What kind of example do I set? 

Am I making a difference in the mission field that God has placed me in?

I hope so.
