At a recent press conference, President Trump asked a reporter, “Are you sure you are a reporter?”
I don’t know the context of the exchange, but I think that is a legitimate question to ask many who work in the media today. It seems that so many of them want to be the story instead of report the story. Too often we hear what the reporter wishes had happened instead of what actually happened. To ask if they really are reporters is a fair question.
We Christians are called to be witnesses to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are not the story; Jesus is the story. We must not slant the story in any way that reflects our own personal bias. We should simply report the facts.
That brings us to a very important question: Are you sure you are a reporter of the gospel message?
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses…”–Acts 1:8
