Sometimes we have to wonder, "What in the world are people thinking?" I have seen countless e-mail addresses, websites, MySpace pages, pictures, and outrageous behavior that do not glorify God in any manner. It is funny how we claim we love the Lord, but our love for Him is not discernable in public.

I am not saying that we should appear to be "holy rollers," but when you truly love someone, you are not ashamed to show it. I have witnessed fellow dancers displaying provocative pictures, or comments with foul language on the intenet and scratch my head. If we are truly in Christ Jesus, then we are new creatures. If the old things of the world are still important enough to advertise in cyberspace, then we must do some soul-searching to find out if we have really been converted.

The internet is a great way to "go into all the world." If the Lord visited your site or page today, would He say "Well done?" Would you be embarrased to forward your e-mails to Him? Instant messaging to Heaven, anyone? If we allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to us, then let's make the changes that would honor the Lord.

1 Corinthians 10:23-24, 31-33 (NKJV)

All things are lawful for me,but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify. Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God, just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
