I learned about a website last year and found it absolutely fascinating. A group called Global Media Outreach learned that every single day, two million people from all over the world were searching for God – by typing it into Google.
So GMO put together hundreds of websites in different languages so that when people searched for Jesus, they could discover the gospel. Amazing right?
Okay – so they also have a website that is an interactive world map that shows you – in real time – where the people are located that are searching for and deciding to follow Jesus.
What this showed me was that people everywhere really are looking for God. Maybe they aren’t walking up to a neighbor and asking “What’s the deal with Jesus?” or “How do I begin to follow God?” But in the privacy of their homes and a search engine, their inner hearts and longings are revealed.
Inspired? I was! Here’s what you can do to support this movement.
Pray! Obviously, prayer is not to be underestimated.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. James 5:16
Join! You can even sign up to be an online missionary. When a seeker responds at one of GMO’s websites, they are connected with an online missionary who interacts with the person through e-mail to help get them going in the right spiritual direction. They offer online training to help you and you can decide how many people you want to help each month.
