Let’s face it: most of us spend a lot of time on Facebook. I just wanted to drop in quickly today to assure you that your Facebook feed can actually be a source of great inspiration, encouragement, and godly wisdom. It’s all about the pages that you follow.
A friend recently told me that she spends a lot of time on social media for her job in marketing, and she was wondering how she could combine her time on Facebook with her desire to grow in Christ and expand her knowledge about His word. So, I’ve compiled a very short list of some pages that I follow that keep my feed filled with interesting and edifying articles. These are listed in no particular order.
The Gospel Coalition This page features content from pastors, bloggers, and people from all kinds of disciplines who write about current issues from a Christian worldview, the Bible, church, and lots more.
Thom Rainer If you enjoy thinking through church issues, or if you are in the ministry, you will enjoy Dr. Rainer’s content.
Tim Challies Tim rounds up some of the best stuff around the web every day (and once on the weekend), plus he writes about varied topics that are of interest to Christians. I always check Challies first.
Albert Mohler If you’re interested in the direction the world is taking and what Christian people should think about it, Albert Mohler will keep you informed. The Briefing is a short podcast where he discusses the issue of the day.
Richard Ross I look forward to Dr. Ross’s status updates every day. If you have a passion for seeing teenagers change the world for Christ, you will want to see what he has to say. His faith in the middle of trying circumstances is inspiring.
God Centered Mom Heather MacFadyen hosts this podcast that features guests who offer all kinds of insight on Christian living and especially Christian parenting.
So, this is a short list, and I’ve chosen these because there’s quite a bit of variety among them. But, this would at least be a good start in making your Facebook newsfeed a little more inspiring and Christ-centered. And, by the way, I do I have one more suggestion: Your Mom Has a Blog. Ha! I pray that this list is a help to you as you try to purge your social media of the time-wasters and hone in on some stuff that will make you more like Christ.
