God is amazing and all knowing. I have always prayed that we could learn how to use the resources available to promote the Gospel and God’s Word. Several years ago, we founded Daily Disciples Ministries and began writing Bible studies. We had no idea what God would lead us to do using technology. We had no idea how to use the Internet and at that time, social media had not been born yet. But God led us to build a website, way back in 2003; then, put the Bible studies that we were teaching on that website as an mp3 file. We videotaped our Spiritual Warfare study in 2006, which are still being sold to this day. I remember the comments from those who thought we were a bit crazy….at that time, these types of things were not that prevalent in Christian activities and not many people seemed to care.
The biggest comment we received during our early technology ideas involved our decision to start writing “daily devotions” to post on our new website. We were told that we would not be able to keep writing them…that we would eventually stop…that it would never last. Well, that was about 8 years ago and over 400 devotions ago. The daily devotions have several thousand subscribers as well as are posted on Crosswalk.com and are passed around the world daily. This past week, we took technology to the next step in our ministry and launched our first App. We thought it was appropriate that it be for our daily devotions. The Daily Disciples Devotions App is available on the iTunes store and App store, one of a few that are actually an App.
God has given all of us the power to learn and to grow. Pray and ask for Him to show you things and how to use these latest technologies. Our voice for Christ needs to be out there in every place and the online world is growing with the voice of the world. Let’s do everything we can as Christians to use technology to spread the message of the Good News. From Apps to online video teachings to anything you can imagine. With God all things are possible.
Our latest Bible study currently going is on the Book of Exodus. We are teaching in person but are videotaping the sessions for anyone to join us, anywhere in the world. Check it out and join us. Visit our new online store at http://www.DailyDisciplesStore.com. Keep in touch and keep the faith!
