Would Jesus follow your social page?

I just had a funny moment. A notification was sent to my email that I had a new Twitter follower. The user name of this new follower had something about Jesus in it, and as I quickly read the subject line I read, "Jesus is now following you on Twitter!" I did a double take and then giggled. How silly of me! 

But then I got to thinking. Would Jesus follow me on Twitter? Or even here on my blog? Sure, it seems silly to think of Jesus being linked up to all the social networking sites, and maybe even checking in on an iPhone. But if He were here, on Earth today, don't you think that would be the case? And if so, how would you feel about Jesus reading your blog? I was recently disappointed in the number of so-called Christian blogs and twitter accounts I chose to "unfollow" because of vulgar, or un-christian content. Another Christian friend of mine commented that she too was doing the same thing, and was sad because some of these users were "Christians".

So, take a look around your blog or twitterverse today and see how you would feel if Jesus was a follower...
Even though He is not in your followers list, He is keeping up with the latest news! ;)

Good point! Being aware of His presence in our lives makes such a difference to our behavior. Thanks for reminder.
