Over 1 billion people worldwide use the Internet as a source of information and entertainment. Have you ever thought about how you can combine your "Web presence" with your faith in God?
Link to Devotional Gained Much Attention
Mike Evans, owner of Gulf Coast Fans in Damon, Texas, considered that as he developed his business' first Web site several years ago. "I was thinking about the site and thought, How cool would it be to help spread the Good News?" he says.
A friend had shown him Promises, a devotion written by Campus Crusade for Christ's late founder Bill Bright. Knowing people would visit Mike's Web site browsing for ceiling fan parts, he placed a link to Promises right in the middle.
"You're looking through for blades or switches and sandwiched in there is the devotional."
Mike began to receive e-mails and phone calls complimenting his business on including a Christian resource on his Web site.
"When people began to take the time to do that, it made a difference in my heart," he says. "Who knows what one link might do in a life? It could change it completely."
Now, years later, all 7 of Mike's Web sites include the link.
