Presenting the Gospel on Twitter

Greg Gilbert at 9 Marks posted a blog about being able to present the gospel Twitter style in 140 words or less. He asks readers to post their best efforts. Here's some of his thoughts:
"I realize some might have questions about the propriety of "tweeting" the good news of Jesus. Honestly, I don't. Rob Bell's statement 'You can't really tweet the gospel' notwithstanding, I actually think you can, and I also think it's not a bad thing to do so. For one thing, it's no bad thing to be able to articulate the core truths of the Gospel in a very concise form. Of course there's more to the gospel than can be confined to 140 characters; but that's not the point. If we were to say everything there is to say about Jesus and the good news, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written. But there are some simple, easily articulated, easily understood truths at the center of it---truths that can be expressed even in 140 characters."
