Jesus just invited me to be His friend on Facebook.
I never expected to receive an invitation from Him. I did not know He had a “Page.” But there was the request, “Yeshua Lord wants to be your friend.”
The request has brought a whole new meaning to the hymn, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”
I guess I should not be surprised that Jesus would be on Facebook. After all, He is omnipresent. However, considering the content often shared by this cyber community, I wonder if it will be comfortable with His presence.
Would we still use “OMG!!!” as often, or some of the other abbreviations that cannot be listed in this column? Perhaps his presence will remind us that he sees all of our comments, even the private “Messages.”
On the positive side, having Jesus as a Facebook friend would reduce ambiguity. His responses would come in written form, clarifying how He feels, and what He wants us to do.
Connecting with Jesus on Facebook would boost the average person’s communications with Him, since most of us spend more time on our computers than we do on our knees.
Facebook would encourage immediate access for those who like to use the “Chat” mode. Imagine spending an hour or two chatting with Jesus about anything!
Considering all of this, I guess Jesus invented Facebook long before Mark Zuckerberg. He just gave it a different name — prayer. He has always been everyone’s friend there.
