Follow me. Like my status. Comment on my blog. Direct message me. Just about everybody has a Facebook, twitter, and a blog in 2012! It has become easier to promote causes, businesses, churches and whatever else we decide. Information is instantly accessible on numerous devices. It creates an easy avenue to promote. Let's apply this to ministry/speaking. I struggle with this whole idea. We hear the slogan, "it is not about me" often. It is a true statement. Is it possible to have a fake sense of humility because if we try we are afraid to fail? What I've been asking myself is, "am I passionate about doing all that I can to further the kingdom of God?" Am I the only one that finds this difficult?
I'm passionate about communicating the gospel. Plain and simple. I want to do it as much as possible. I do not want to promote myself but promote Christ. If we have a message of hope for those who are lost don't we need to promote it? Or, do we simply sit and pray only?
I guess what I'm asking is where do we draw the line between promoting ourselves (ego-driven) and promoting Christ (kingdom-driven)?
I'd like to hear your thoughts?
