Face-to-face is the original social media.
Conversations that used to take place over a meal or drinks after work is now happening on Facebook, Skype and Tweets.
Whatever the delivery system, online gurus say it has to have at least these four components to be meaningful:
- practical value
But even if all these components are there, I’ve noticed something – people are hungry for human interaction, not just cyber chats. They want face-to-face. They need to feel connected to others they can see, hear, touch and laugh with.
And no virtual delivery system can produce what a personal encounter can.
God knew that.
God, with all his supernatural abilities, could have designed a mechanism (better than Skype or Zoom) whereby he could communicate with us without leaving heaven to do it.
He could have sent angel messengers.
He could have boomed his voice from heaven.
He could have scared the life out of us with flashes of lightning and peals of thunder.
Instead, he sent his own flesh and blood Son to live among us, suffer alongside us, and die a horrible death and conquer the grave.
Where’s the value in that?
God knew the kind of mess we were in – we were dead in our sins and unable to rescue ourselves. So he fixed the problem by sending his Son Yeshua (Jesus) to live a life of perfect obedience to the law of God for us, and then die in our place and rise from the dead in order to pay the price for our sins.
So how is that relevant to me?
If Jesus hadn’t done that, you would have no hope of measuring up to God’s standards and being loved by him.
Only Jesus measured up and secured your relationship with God, so when you place your faith in his finished work for you, God fully accepts you as his cherished child.
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Messiah – by grace you have been saved – and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua.” – Ephesians 2: 4-7 ESV
By believing in him, for the first time in your life you have face-to-face communication with God through Jesus.
Now that beats anything you can have online!
