Ways to Share Good News on Social Media
Overcome the World with Your Faith Story
Throughout history when anti-Christian sentiments prevailed, Christ-followers overcame oppression and persecution with their testimony.
“They triumphed over him [the accuser] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony...” – Revelation 12:11 (NIV)
The same is true today. Your testimony – your life story – holds power over darkness. It is the key to overcoming the world and often, the door opener for people searching for something to believe in.
In the days of the early church, the building of Roman roads helped pave the way for the Gospel to spread from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth. The invention of the Gutenberg printing press in the 1500s made it possible for a commoner to own a copy of the Bible and read it for himself or herself.
And today, social media has paved the way for your post to influence people halfway around the world. A carefully worded social media caption can inspire your neighbor – or a struggling mom in New York or Poland or Japan.
What Should I Share on Social Media?
If you’re wondering what to post online, here are some easy ideas to help you share your Christian testimony on social media.
Did God sustain you through the layoffs of the pandemic? Tell someone! If you can word it in 280 characters or less, you can tweet about God’s divine provision to the world.
Did God give you supernatural grace to oversee your child’s online schooling last year? Take a picture of your kid’s shining report card – or your happy smiling face after surviving it all – and post it on Instagram. You never know who might need the assurance of God’s grace in the day-to-day situations of life.
Have you or a family member experienced God’s healing touch? Use a trending hashtag to let people know that God still heals today. #healingjourney and #healing are both trending on Twitter at the moment – and be sure to tag @PureFlix so we can retweet and share in your success! Your testimony may be the hope a woman battling breast cancer needs to keep praying and believing for a miracle.

“No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.” – Luke 11:33 (NIV)
