Chuck Lawless on 8 Ways to ‘Redeem’ Your Cell Phone for Ministry Use

I’ve written in the past about why I believe that cell phones can hinder ministry, in addition to why I know I must put my phone down in meetings. I recognize, though, that cell phones are a part of our lives. So, perhaps these suggestions will help us “redeem” our cell phone for ministry.

8 Ways to Use Your Cell Phone for Ministry

  1. Enroll in a “verse of the day” email or text subscription, and read the verse many times each day. Not only will that commitment keep the Word in front of you all day, but you’ll also memorize some texts without even trying. You may even choose to do your daily Bible reading electronically, though I still prefer my hard copy.
  2. Commit to praying for an unreached people group each day by subscribing to the Joshua Project’s daily prayer list. Take the time to read about each group (usually no more than about five minutes each day), and your heart will begin to break for the nations.
  3. At least once each week, call somebody with a word of encouragement. They’ll be both blessed by your affirmation and surprised that anyone actually called them rather than sending an electronic message.
  4. Use an app to memorize scripture regularly. My students like both Fighter Verses and Bible Memory, though you may find another that you prefer. Treasure the Word in your heart that you might not sin against God (Psalm 119:11).
