Life On Display


Lately I’ve been thinking about this idea of me being a light to the world. It’s a huge responsibility. Something not to be taken lightly. I was reminded of this in one of the strangest ways recently.

A young woman named Justine is part of a growing group of people who are “lifecasting.” I don’t know if you’ve heard of this, but it’s worth checking out, it’s actually oddly addicting. is the live webcast of Justine’s life. She has a web cam that she takes with her during her daily activities (getting coffee, working at her desk, going to clubs) and she willingly and happily broadcasts her life over the internet for the world to see.

She carries on conversations with people that are in her chat room talking and answers questions in real time, she’s just a free lance video editor who has a slightly odd passion for internet, I guess.

What’s interesting to me is that when I started asking myself if I were to broadcast my life over the internet and people could see what I do when no one else is around, what would they see? The answers made me think.

Of course, I would want people to see the same thing they see when I walk into a room ready to hang out, work, go out, whatever. Is that what they would see?

What would they see in you?

It’s questions like these that actually have me considering this lifecasting thing. My life should be an example. An example of the grace of God, the love of God, the passion of Jesus Christ and His saving power.

In reality, my life is on display everywhere I go. So is yours.

What are you broadcasting?
