Hastening salvation is what we've been called to do, but how does one "Hasten Salvation" exactly? We hasten salvation by sharing the Gospel, we are called to share the Gospel with everyone. Not just with the nonmember, but also the less active, the recent convert, the struggling member, and also the member who is enduring to the end. Facebook allows us to do these things, and if used effectively, it makes a huge impact with minimal effort. So how do you use Facebook effectively? Here are 8 ways!
MR says: The apostles have counseled us to share our testimonies over social media, but how can we make the biggest impact without sounding too pushy?
If you've shared something once normally it is good enough. If you REALLY like it, wait for Friday, and post it as a #FlashBackFriday post. But multiple posts of the exact same thing is spam. Also, pace yourself, don't bomb everyone's feed with dozens of gospel posts in a matter of minutes, remember you've been called to SHARE not to SPAM.
Share miracles, studies, or uplifting posts.
Share your testimony on Facebook, or take opportunities on anniversaries to share church related events. Or your current activities with the missionaries. This is one of the most powerful ways to share the Gospel.
“With the blessings of modern technology, we can express gratitude and joy about God’s great plan for His children in a way that can be heard . . . around the world. Sometimes a single phrase of testimony can set events in motion that affect someone’s life for eternity.”
~ President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
