Would Jesus tweet?

If Jesus was wandering around earth with a Smartphone, I wonder what He would do?

Would He check in to a location so people could stop by?

Would He Google the local wedding announcements and crash the celebration?

Would He download an app to keep track of his disciples?

Would He tweet?

And if He did tweet, what kind of things would He say in 140 characters or less?

Way excited. So hungry. Dinner @ Martha’s.

Come by Mt today. Sermon 4 u will b gr8.

Love your neighbor as yourself – #importanttruths

Flashmob at 12:30. Bring own loaves and fish.

Yeah…. I’m with you.

Can’t really see it.

In fact, I wonder if Jesus chose the timeframe that He did so He could avoid all the techno stuff.  I can almost imagine the heavenly dilemma as He weighed out being born in a manger versus coming up with a clever Facebook status…

Hands down, He went with the feed trough.

I get that.

But I also get that Jesus calls some of us to the techno world. So while Jesus may have chosen not to tweet, I sense his smile as He’s asked me to pick it up—if only to entertain him as I try to compact profound spiritual truth into five words or less.

So there you have it. If you’d like to join me for the ride, and “follow” (Yes, I use that word very loosely), my twitter account is @elsakokcolopy. Oh, and if you have any recommendations of other folks I can learn from and follow, leave your suggestion in the comment section.

    I think He would say “Elsa, you rock. You go girl.”

    Great post, Elsa! I kind of like the idea that Jesus would tweet if he had chosen to come to earth “for such a time as this.” But I’m glad he came when he did and said what he said, how he said it. Way important stuff!

    I recently saw a poll that voted Tricia Goyer (author, speaker) one of the top 6 Christian women to follow on Twitter, so you might check her out. Also, Mary DeMuth is popular. Happy tweetin’!

    Christine Caine is a great follow! Also, Steven Furtick, Mark Hall(Casting Crowns), and Rick Warren(Always good!)

    I enjoyed your post. I came across this Twitter dramatization of the Easter story a few months ago. I found it strangely moving.
