Many inventions in recent years has emphasized the importance of science and technology. Transportation, health, communication, agriculture has been improved because men and women have been gifted with the grace to make these inventions. Just as we have noted, every invention has its purpose to serve, but there is an underlying Kingdom that it seeks to get the attention of. Having left the pillar of science and technology unattended to as a church, many have turned their attention to self as the God of man. This has led to secularism and may have lost their faith in God.
The church cannot separate itself from Science and Technology because it is a culture that influences the growth of the church. Ranging from the musical instruments, lighting system, electricity, through to the various payment options for tithes and offerings, the church relies on science and technology. As Christians, we need the airplane to travel from one country to another, we need cars to travel by land, we need mobile phones to communicate with other people, amongst many other things.
It is therefore important that we encourage ourselves to be active participants of the development of science and technology. For we have been called for the works of ministry, and we need to be agents of transformation. As others are using science to disprove the existence of God and technology to form the basis of their agenda of secularism, we can use the science and technology to advance the knowledge of God. For this is what God says:
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.Habakkuk 2:14 (NIV)
Let us rise up and take advantage of the wisdom and the spirit of excellence that God gives unto us to make Him known in this world. Let us create that atmosphere for the world to want to know the God we serve. For are Christ ambassadors, and He is making a public appeal through us to the world. Rise up and be a great ambassador in the pillar of science and technology.
Thank you Father for Your Spirit and power that you have made available unto us. I pray that you will continually order my steps to fulfil your purpose on Earth. AMEN!
