Serving God via the Internet

#1

When one thinks of serving God, they probably tend to think of going out there, getting our hands dirty, and getting real with people face to face. But do you think people can also do God's work through the internet? Such as, could God be using us when we post on this very website? :)

Why not? There are seekers/pagans/atheists who come here looking for...something. God alone knows which ones will end up genuine Christians later on. Every post may be used by Him.

If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.

Yes, I do. I myself try to start similar forum as this one but in Slovak. So far, there is only small number of posts written by me. What I learn here may then appear on my forum.
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
-- Philippians 1:6

God uses each of us, in whatever circumstance he puts us. Including the internet. Actually, what's a better way for the gospel to reach the ends of the earth, than the internet?
John 5:24
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

If the internet can be used to go against God, as it so often is, then it can be used to preach for God.
