This world suffers from FoMO
- The Fear of missing out.
We spend our days memorizing social media like a dictionary.
Drinking the wine of its definition.
Reading other people’s highlight reel like it is truth.
Watching staged, filtered, duck face, perfectly angled, to hit all the right
angles, pics until we are a library of pervasive apprehensive thoughts,
that others are having a better time than us; in fact other people are
better than us.
We follow and like,
and follow and like,
and follow and like until it makes us sick.
Still we drink again and again like we are bobbing for apples in Eden.
Welcome to the party.
This poisoned world tries to fill us with continually connected knowledge
of what others are doing.
We are full to the top with FoMO.
An overflow of fear that we have made the wrong decision on how to
spend our time.
We should be somewhere else.
We should wear something else.
We should be someone else.
There is always something better… if I can just Google what it is…
There is something missing.
So, we continually plug into our keyboards.
Add power bars to power bars to extension cords like more electricity
will bring us back to life.
Distraction is key.
But keys can set you free or lock you inside.
Keep you at home on Sunday to focus on Facebook.
Check-in, #SELFIE! Take a picture of your lunch
– You are having such a good time!
Quick take my picture…make me look like I’m having such a good
Pin each picture to your “Self Worth” wall and judge your worth in an
unworthy world by the of likes, views, and shares among friends you
don’t even know.
This world is selling you a super size version of everyone else’s life.
It wants to keep you looking for the upgrade.
It wants you to think that you can buy, whatever it is that you need.
But there is nothing that can purchase that Jesus has not already died
and paid for.
We are signed, sealed and delivered.

They will tell you the cross is just jewelry.
Instead of a reminder hangin’ from our necks that it should
have been us hangin’ there instead.
A Man died on the cross.
The world will tell you it is a historical fact
They will focus on the fact - He was a Man.
But in a report you must provide all the evidence.
Face the fact that there will be some facts
that you cannot face but yet they are true.
Fact: A Man, flesh and bone, knew He was to going to die, feel
wear a crown of thorns, be beaten, shamed, humiliated.
His skin would be torn, His blood dripping.
At His greatest moment of torture
His own Father would turn away.
Still he took every nail
for His followers,
for His enemies,
and for the lukewarm He walked straight into fire.
Fact: If there was any sin he had not taken on yet
Jesus would run toward it and impaled Himself on it.
If that meant one more heart would be saved.
Fact: There is a reason it is called “going viral”
It is an infection that has overtaken our minds and is aiming
for our souls.
Fact: I have a fear that the world is missing out on the sound
of His voice, caught up in a raging ocean of idols.
Fact: One drop of the blood that was pressed from Him could
the hole shaped like Jesus dug into your chest by the world.
Fact: The world is just the world. You will leave it behind.
So, check our status with Him before all others.
And instead of Facebook put your face in The Book.
