Im’a keep this short & sharp. Sharp enough to pierce through someone’s heart. But definitely not sweet because what I’m about to say will definitely make someone’s flesh & pride boil. But that’s okay cos I’ve felt that too before and that’s why I’m pointing it out. But let me make myself clear. I’m not perfect. I don’t claim that I’ve got it all figured out. And I’m definitely not claiming that I’m better than everyone else. All I’m saying and the reason why I wrote this post is to challenge you and to help you think and really re-evaluate the purpose and reason of why you blog, write, and post stuff. This post goes out to all the ‘Christian Tumblr Bloggers’ out there. And yes, I won’t be surprise if I lose hundreds of followers after this post and if I get all the ‘hate mail’.

Some of us think that we are some kind of a ‘Christian Tumblr Blogger Famous’ and that we got all the biblical knowledge and wisdom. Some of us worked really hard to get to where we are now. We’ve posted all these profound issues and topics which resulted to more popularity and followers. How many followers you’ve got? Hundreds? thousands? Good for you. I’m sure they enjoy all your post. Especially when they ask you about your love life and when people ask you if you’re still single or not and you gladly answer it with much excitement. On the other hand when people ask us about theological questions, some of us get into these debates and who knows what kind of questions we all get on a regular basis.

Here’s the thing though. Tumblr is a great social network. Our world and the society that we live in is advancing rapidly and technology is an inevitable tool. But for some of us, tumblr has become an idol in our lives to the extent where we use the very banner of Jesus Christ to create our own kingdom instead of His, and to make much more of our selves instead of God. Some of us spend hours and hours posting, re-blogging, answering questions, some are stupid, and some are just questions you answer for vain reasons so people would be more interested and curious about you. Admit it, we want the attention and we seek approval from people and we want some sort of status and name and we want to prove others that we are something in this tumblr world.

if you are still reading and made it this far, good job. But I’m sorry cos I’m gonna have to break your heart and cause your flesh to boil. Honestly, if you take pride on the fact that you have hundreds or thousands of followers, or if your post gets a lot of re-blogs and notes, or that people ask you all kinds of questions or if people adore you because ‘you are so good and so godly I wish I can have someone like you’ If you like that and take pleasure on those things, that’s a really sad reality.

Some of us desperately need a reality & heart check. This approach and mentality towards tumblr and the way you’re thinking that you’re something when really you’re nothing special besides the fact that you are a Child of God, is a sad reality. I challenge you as I’ve challenged myself from the past. Instead of spending so much time on tumblr why don’t you get up and get involved in community. Instead of posting hundreds of post every month, be productive and do something. Do you really need to post that much? Do you really need to hunger for questions so you have something to answer to every single day? Do you really need to be popular for the sake of your own glory, name and kingdom? Think again.

When all else fails, when you pass away and move to another ‘life’, no one cares and no one will remember that ‘fame’ you’ve built in this social world. All will be forgotten. So why spend so much time on here and bear fruitless fruit when you can do something for the kingdom of God in a much effective and productive way? Let’s re-examine our hearts once again. If you feel convicted then this post is for you and you know who you are. If you don’t feel convicted then, you’re not. Simple as that. Have a blessed day/night.

This is my dog tag that has been dangling in my car for years now. I got this back in 2007 when I came to the Lord Jesus Christ. I was reminded again by the Holy Spirit the Simplicity of the Gospel and at the same time the Power to CHANGE LIVES. It really is simple and people complicate it way too much.
God’s message is LOVE and He showed that through His son Jesus Christ when He died on the cross for YOU and ME. And rose from the grave 3 days later to prove that He is victorious over SIN and death therefore who ever put their faith in Christ will not only be victorious over sin and death but will have Eternal Life. Life everlasting.
First step is BELIEVE and put your faith in Christ.

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be SAVED. - Romans 10:9

 Second step is FOLLOW His examples and abide in His word.

“If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. - Luke 9:23

And any form of works or serving are done in faith and compelled by love because He first loved us. And Seriously this is the basic principle of Christianity. It really is that simple.
So If you’re a Christian and you heard/saw something different than this, I really suggest that you get a bible, read His word and wrestle with your ‘faith’ or seek a pastor/mentor.
If you’re not a Christian and you’re reading this and saying, ‘wait a minute, that’s Christianity? I saw/heard something different compare to what this guy is saying’ — Well whatever that is that you heard/saw from other ‘Christians’ if there’s one thing that I want you to know it’s this: 
There’s a God who created everything in this world and that includes YOU. The world that we are living now just didn’t POP out of nowhere. There’s a Creator. Just like your iPhone just didn’t POP randomly in your hand, APPLE created it. So if a phone has a creator, what more for the world? just think about that for a second.
He knows everything about you. Your struggles and success. Your pain and problems. And He wants to change that. He wants to have a relationship with you, walk with you, cry with you, fight with/for you, love you, take care of you, guide/lead you, fill you with joy, love and purpose…  by simply believing and putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. 
Would you like to do that? Just say a simple genuine prayer asking Him to forgive you from all your sins and surrendering your life and allowing Christ to take over your life. And that from this point on you will follow Him all the days of your life. — or if that’s too hard and complicated but you really wanna know more about this guy Jesus, message me and I will pray for you.In Christ, Mark M.P.S. - If you’re a Christian, re-blog and share the gospel.
