This picture is a sign of the times. How entwined with technology we are! Even though we may not have a car, still a computer is a necessity. Not just a computer, a website! Direct interpersonal relationships are becoming a thing of the past and those we have are via electronic means. We have added the machine to our life and it has replaced the natural order of things. Yet, if used correctly, even the digital world can add to our spirituality. Consider these words of the apostle Peter for a moment....
2 Peter 1:3-11 (WEB)
3) seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue;
4) by which he has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust.
5) Yes, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence; and in moral excellence, knowledge;
6) and in knowledge, self-control; and in self-control patience; and in patience godliness;
7) and in godliness brotherly affection; and in brotherly affection, love.
8) For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful to the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9) For he who lacks these things is blind, seeing only what is near, having forgotten the cleansing from his old sins.
10) Therefore, brothers, be more diligent to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never stumble.
11) For thus you will be richly supplied with the entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
God has blessed us in many ways and the computer can be a blessing as well, so why not use it to grow closer to the God of the heavens. Just as it can help us keep in touch with our friends, so it can be used in the study of the Scriptures and this can help us grow spiritually.
PS. I have started to post the daily readings from my Easy Read Old and New Testaments on the website. The daily readings start out small and gradually increase, so that at the end of a year the entire Bible is read through completely (or two years if you want to do the New Testament first)
