Paul I know who are you? (Acts 19;15).
I communicated unto you (Gal 6;6).
“But let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.”
Who knows you?
Do you take it for granted that you are known online?
There’s a difference between being “known” and being “noticed!”
And .. if you are noticed what is it that attracts others to you, what are you noted for?
We all want attention. Let’s get real none of us write blogs and posts videos without wanting readers and viewers and getting your audience is not automatic. You don’t automatically get viewers because you are known. You get viewers because you say something remarkable. Yes remarkable. Your posts get others to make remarks about you, good or bad. You provoke thought, you add value, you solve problems, you provide a service and you attract controversy. Sadly, not many have the patience to connect and respond to posts, that’s why they are wasting their time online. To get followers teach them something, follow them as you would have them follow you. Listen to them as you would have them listen to you. Respond to them as you would have them respond to you. Online connecting is more important than posting.
The difference between “posting” and “communicating” is extraordinary. God did not call you to use his time to “post.” God called you to use his time to COMMUNICATE
If you want to be known..COMMUNICATE.
But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased (Hebrews 13:16 KJV).
Yes being known requires SACRIFICE… I wouldn’t trust a preacher who just posted and liked the repossess but did not COMMUNICATE back. Your communication reveals interest, sincerity and authenticity of purpose.
To seek out a shortcut to being known. To have deniability because we got picked… What would your life be like if you had started “connecting” ten years ago? that is building ten quality partnerships with ten quality men/women of God?
The apostle Paul’s life was a prime example. Look at the students he raised up Timothy, Titus, the churches in various cities, he wrote letters to them, revealing to us the importance of careful and thoughtful communication. Folk’s knew Paul because of the depth of teaching he done, he didn’t just post one-liners or instagram posts, he followed up and followed through, mentored and instructed… how about you?
