What Would Jesus Pin?

The phrase “What would Jesus do?” (often abbreviated to WWJD) became popular in the United States in the 1990s and as a personal motto for adherents of Evangelical Christianity who used the phrase as a reminder of their belief in a moral imperative to act in a manner that would demonstrate the love of Jesus through the actions of the adherents. This saying has become a guiding principle for many Christians.

As simple as it seems, the question—What would Jesus Do?—still leaves us wondering.

However, we’re flipping that around and asking you the question, WWJP—Would #Jesus Pin? or Post? Do You Really Want to Know?

First Peter 2:21 says that Jesus left us “an example, that we should follow in his steps.” So, it’s admirable and biblical to ask “WWJP —What would Jesus Pin?” 

what would jesus pinEveryone who knows anything about the gospels—and even those who don’t—knows at a basic level that Jesus was a friend of #sinners. Yet we find ourselves constantly challenged by Jesus’s example to make sure we do not turn away outsiders in a way that Jesus never would.

If the truth be told Jesus was a friend of sinners not because he winked at sin, ignored sin, or enjoyed light-hearted revelry with those engaged in immorality. Jesus was a friend of sinners in that he came to save sinners.

We looked at the four gospels with the above question in mind and discovered seven priorities that guided Jesus. He would seek the Father for the strength and wisdom to embrace, restore, confront, teach, serve, and equip the people around him.

These seven priorities should drive us back to the gospels to take a fresh look at how Jesus lived. As users of the social networking websites we need to keep asking ourselves—#What Would Jesus Pin? or Post. It’s a great question. But remember: If you’re not sure what Jesus actually did in his life, then you’re just guessing at what he might do in yours.

We’ve included some of the most compelling photos posted to Godinterest today.

Capture And Share God’s World With Pictures

We cannot be everywhere, yet photographs take us nearly everywhere. Our vision is formed by what we see from those images. For example their was a recent trending discussion on how terrible it was that young children, as young as two, were smoking in parts of Indonesia. Why? Because visuals of children smoking were posted on Godinterest. Such images hit us right in the gut.

Every week 100s of pictures are shared on Godinterest. In this post we are going to show you some of the images that caught our attention this week. Powerful pictures that everybody in the world should see. Photographs that will make you think, will make you stare  and feel the emotions of that moment and perhaps will make you weep.

Some of them are popular photos that you probably have seen before, and others are pictures telling stories of ordinary people.

You will see desperate people facing the end, photos of unexpected events and photos about affection, stories of war and stories of love.

A Picture Is Worth Much More Than A Thousand Words – Godinterest

They say, “a picture is worth much more than a thousand words”. When we read a story about the someone’s life experience — it often has a lot less impact on us than seeing the emotions captured in a photograph. To illustrate this further, here are some of the most powerful and captivating photo’s added to Godinterest this week.

…Philemon 1:4 I thank my #God, making mention of you always in my prayers as our praise is not predicated on what #God does, are praise is contingent on who #God is and since he never changes our praise should never change.

Pictures Speak Louder Than Words – Godinterest

You’ve heard the old saying actions speak louder than words right? Well today we want to tell you that online, it’s pictures that speak louder than words!”

Photographs are one of the most powerful tools of engagement online, and is rising in importance as the digital realm takes hold and more people look to online channels for browsing, shopping and socialising. There’s something about a photograph on Godinterest, one that makes a statement or just takes your breath away with its sheer beauty. Why?

In this fast-moving world, when you have a message to convey, people hardly have time to sit down and read. But if you’re able to capture the essence of what you want to say in a photo, you’ll stand a better chance of capturing your target audience. It’s true that our attention is easily distracted by pictures. Visuals are more effective than words literally and figuratively as people tend to stop and look at compelling visuals.

Studies have found that pictures facilitate the learning process, especially when it comes to children and others who are mentally impaired. They have shown that photo’s are easier to remember and associate with facts and that they can both evoke and are able to capture emotions that words cannot, no matter how cleverly they’re used.

In a #warzone, a crying child in the midst of all the rubble drives home the pointlessness of it all much more than the harshest of write-ups. The picture of a little baby praying is enough to melt even the hardest of hearts.

However, most often though, it’s not just the pictures alone that make a point. When combined with the best write-ups, visuals help to push home the message in the most powerful way and that’s how they ought to be used on #godinterest

…Depression is a doosey. A conversation I had with a friend the other day inspired this post. Depression runs rampant and it’s peculiar that so many people afflicted with this ailment are #christians. Why is that?

Godinterest Now Available In Eight Languages

Godinterest is a essential tool for evangelism and is focused on sharing the Gospel message around the world through pictures. Jesus told his followers to take the Gospel to all the world, but there are still language groups which can not use Godinterest in their mother tongue – the language they understand the best.

Since God reveals Himself to the extent that humans can receive it. He uses the words of the listener as well as the listener’s own understanding of language.

Starting today, people can use Godinterest in more languages.

We’ve translated our website into 8 new languages: Spanish (Español), Português (Brasil), Français (France), German (Deutsch), Italian (Italiano), Chinese (Simplified) (简体字), Hindi (हिन्दी) and Japanese (日本語).

Now, it’s even easier for people around the world to share posts that make us laugh, teach us something new about God or help us find out what’s happening in the Christian world.

We’re also going to be exploring ways to surface photos that are popular in a particular country. Wherever you are in the world, be it Japan, Brazil or somewhere in between, we hope this update makes it easier for you to discover and post content that bring us all closer to God and thereby closer to each other.

Godinterest – Behind Every Picture, There’s A Story

There’s a story, behind every picture, isn’t it obvious, considering that when we take pictures we want to seize that particular moment, whether that be a family photo or just a situation that you find interesting and intriguing.

All over the world and every day and every minute there is a photo somewhere being taken and each and every one of those photos, like the moment it captures, has a story.

The story maybe brief, or it may be long, or maybe not even known. The picture might even show its story, or hints of what it could be, but then maybe what is shown is not really true. None the less, for some reason we have taken these pictures, we show them, or hide them away, post them for others to see on Godinterest, and sometimes we wait to see what other people may say.

People often say that a picture is worth a thousand words, it implies something, it means something, you take it as you want.

The exact phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words” for the first time appeared as an advertisement in San Antonio Light newspaper in 1918.

Never underestimate that feeling you get when you look at a photograph or a painting, hear the lyrics of a song and think “Yes. That, exactly. That is how I feel right now.”

The beauty of the pictures is that it captures universal emotions and makes us feel a bit less alone.

There is a story behind every picture on Godinterest. Sad story, fun story. We hope you will enjoy the incredible story telling pictures we gathered only for you.

If there’s a story behind every picture or image, the above story is PERFECT ♥ John 3:16 says for [God] so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. King James Bible. God’s love is very personal toward us. It doesn’t matter where we’ve been, it doesn’t matter what we’ve done, it doesn’t matter what we’ve experienced – God loves us unconditionally.

Our feet may never come close to what these kids do. we’re sure it’s a long tiring day for them collecting scrap woo.

Missions at Freedom Fellowship has the goal of seeing lives transformed by the power of Christ. Their efforts are focused in India, Indonesia, China and Thailand.

July 4th was over 89 years before the 13th Amendment abolished slavery, however, human trafficking is still a problem in the United States and throughout the world.

11 Ways to Share Your Faith Online with Godinterest

While Godinterest is often referred to as a “photo sharing website,” in reality it is much more than that. In addition to posting photos, people also post funny images, quotes and text. And some people don’t post anything at all, they just “like” and comment on what others post.

Because of that we think it’s more accurate and beneficial to think of Godinterest as a social network where images are the primary medium.

Let’s talk about ways we can use Godinterest to share our faith online. Here are 11 we came up with:

1) Post pics of creation.  Give God all the praise.

God's creation

2) Post pics of Christian community. Share the fun and love you experience at social events at church and within your small group.

3) Post pics of serving in your community. When you serve the poor, paint a house or join in a community service project or cause, take, upload and share photos.

4) Post pics from missions trips. Missions trips are especially good opportunities for great photos because they often provide the opportunity to mix in beautiful pictures of God’s creation, culture and people from other country’s.
