A Blog is a Web site that is continuously renewed, or a method to publish information on Internet systematically. The portal Moldova Creștină is a blog. In this article I will present seven reasons for each Christian to create a blog.
1.It is simple to create a blog. On http://www.wordpress.com you can do this thing following some simple steps. If you have a personal domain name, you can download WordPress on your own Internet space and create a blog that can be modified the way you wish.
2.It is for free. I have found on Internet a list with a lot of possibilities to create and moderate a blog for free. For many times I wonder to see how the best things are offered for free to people, but few take advantage of them. The same thing is with salvation from eternal death. It is given for free, but so few people take advantage of it. In fact, it is not for free at all… We receive it for free, but it has been paid a lot for our salvation. Here is the price:
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:16)(NASB)
3.The personal testimony can be accessible to all your friends at any time. Those who come to know you for the first time, can find and read your personal testimony how you have met Jesus Christ and in this way, they can follow your example. The personal testimony about the experiences with God have always had a great impact in other people’s lives.
4.Contributes to a healthy and strong presence of the Gospel on Internet. I am so sorry to see how, along with the good things and rich resources, Internet abounds in all kind of messages that propagate materialism, immorality, atheism, etc. Christians have the duty to profit of this opportunity of our century and to use it maximally to preach the Gospel and Christian values. If you create a personal blog, through this you will surely contribute to spreading the Gospel.
5.Shares your experiences with others. Every man possesses a capacity of knowledge and experiences that can be shared with others and this can be a good opportunity to preach the Gospel to people. Our sons, David and Daniel created their personal blogs to share with others interesting things that they find out from the books they are reading. Share your own experiences with others.
6.Invites people to your church or to the group where you study the Bible. You can use your personal blog to announce people about the activities that take place at the church that you attend, and in case you once forget to announce people directly or to call them, they can know what is the program of the church by visiting your personal blog.
9.Maintains a healthy communication with other Christians. This is possible through the blog which is an interactive site. People visit and read your articles, can post a comment at any time, you can answer to their comments as I did in this article.
Don’t put off! Today open a blog and write, write, write!
