What’s on your mind?
Millions of people use social media every day to share what’s on their mind. While many posts bring people together, some online conversations have driven people apart.
You might be wondering what you can do to have a positive influence online. You might be thinking, “How can I use my social media to share God’s love?”
Thankfully, as Jesus Christ lives in you, He can help you use your platforms in sharing His comfort to the hurting, helpless, and hopeless.
Spreading the Good News anywhere is a blessing! So here are 5 ways on how you can share the love of God on social media:
1. Share the Word of God
Did you know that when you share a Bible verse, you are planting seeds of faith into the hearts of the people and helping them reflect on the Word of God?
In a study titled, Effects of Christian Faith Sharing through Social Media, researchers found out that faith sharing through social media significantly impacts the beliefs and behavior of those who encounter those posts.
So, share that morning verse you have read in your devotional book in social media. Post your favorite worship song. Retweet that powerful testimony so others can be strengthened, too.
Who knows, maybe one of your friends needs a little encouragement and that post could pop up just in time. You might not know the impact of those messages to their life, but God’s Word is alive, and He can use your posts to touch their hearts.

2. Tell your story
How has God blessed you? Share it today!
Your personal testimony is a powerful tool in sharing what God has done and continues to do in your life. It doesn’t just represent you coming to Jesus—it can also bring others to Him.
In his interview with Live the Word Love the Word, social media content creator Doug Kramer shared how he maximizes their family’s platform to share about the goodness of God in their lives.
They share their usual family activities like praying together, teaching their kids Christian values, and glorifying God in their successes and everyday lives.
Whether you have thousands of followers or just a few, your story and answered prayers can influence others, too!
3. Pray for your friends on social media
Noticed that friend’s post about health issues? Reach out to that friend and send a prayer. It will surely lighten the burden. If you know someone who is going through a challenging situation, grab that opportunity to share the love of God and pray for that person.
Another simple yet powerful way to share God’s love on social media is to ask your friends if they have any prayer request. Let them know that in every situation, they can always come to God through prayer.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” (Philippians 4:6 NIV)
4. Help others and encourage your online friends to do the same
Share God’s kindness by supporting your kababayans in need. While you’re at it, you can share posts on outreach activities, volunteer opportunities, and ways to support His ministry—like Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm—to encourage others to help as well.
As you experience God’s blessings, you can inspire your online friends that they can be a blessing, too.
5. Simply be nice
In the era of cancel-culture, endless rants, and online bullying, there is always room for kindness.
Make a difference by simply being nice on social media. As Matthew 5:16 puts it perfectly, let your light shine before your online friends, so that they may see those good works and glorify your Heavenly Father.
Maximize your online presence by sharing, inspiring, and encouraging others to grow in their faith. Tell your friends that God loves them so much that He gave His life to the world. Take every opportunity to share about God’s Word.
“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.’” (Mark 16:15 NIV)
