Now more than ever, we need better rules of engagement and rhythms for online life that protect the work of God within us as He molds us into more faithful followers of Christ.

 

In the early days, the followers of Jesus were called Followers of the Way. Those who responded to the invitation, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Followers of Jesus were invited to be with Jesus, walk like Jesus and talk like Jesus and hung on to every word of His. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Following Him has a path laid out already. The narrow path, as we are told in scripture.

From the invention of telegraphs, that would be distributed in town squares, to the radio, that would broadcast information along an even further radius, to the television and now social media that spreads information in seconds. Each technological breakthrough has proven to be an instrument that has the potential to propel our mission as followers of Jesus. Each innovation has also as well as the potential to threaten our devotion and compete with our allegiance to Christ.

 

Through biblical teaching, Maria shares what it means to be a digitally connected follower of Jesus covering some of the issues we run into in our allegiance to Christ including:

  • Identity

  • Devotion, Distraction and Destruction

  • Idols and Disordered Loves

  • Biblical Illiteracy and Scripture Engagement

  • Content: Consecration and Compromise

  • Online Influencers & Stewarding Influence

  • Zeal and Legacy

  • Community and Discipleship

  • Emotions

In Faithful Follower, Maria delves into our lives as followers in light of eternity and work backwards into the present digital age examining what it means to be a digitally connected follower, remaining anchored to where our true identity lies and our mission on earth as deep, resilient and devoted followers of Jesus no matter what innovation comes next.

 "I urge you to lean into the truth and wisdom in this book and go on a self-discovery journey to heal and become whole. When you take this journey, like Maria, you will take others along with you, and you will change your world."

And He said to them, “Follow Me [as My disciples, accepting Me as your Master and Teacher and walking the same path of life that I walk], and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed Him [becoming His disciples, believing and trusting in Him and following His example].

Social Media Rule of Life

The term rule of life has its origins in the early church fathers and has been used to help communities develop rhythms for their minds, hearts, and bodies for their spiritual formation and flourishing. A good rule enables followers of Jesus to follow Him more faithfully and fruitfully. A rule of life for technology/social media creates rhythms and boundaries that guide your relationship with these tools and platforms which in turn flows into growing in love for God, neighbor, and self (the healthy kind, of course). Every person’s rule of life looks different and may be based on the individual’s current relationship with social media and technology.

 

Some of the questions we must ask ourselves before developing our rule may include:

 

  • What is the vision of my life? (What is my mission/purpose?)

  • What are my values? (What beliefs or principles guide my life?)

  • Why do I have a social media account?

  • How much time do I currently spend online in a day? A week? A month? A year?

  • What impact does my social media content consumption have on my Christian spiritual formation (growth into Christlikeness)?

  • Is what I am consuming reflective of the life of a follower of Jesus?

  • Is what I am creating/posting reflective of the life of a follower of Christ?

  • What are the predominant emotions I experience during my time online? How do I feel about myself/my purpose/my online and offline neighbor after I have spent time online?

“Let us see that habits shape the heart. Let us stop fearing that limits are a threat to our freedom. Let us see that the right limitations are the way to the good life. Let us build a trellis for love to grow on. Let us craft a common rule of life for our time, one that will unite our heads and our habits, growing us into the lovers of God and neighbor we were created to be.”
