An online devotional for writers
John the Baptist, who was in prison, heard about all the things the Messiah was doing. So he sent his disciples to ask Jesus, “Are you the Messiah we’ve been expecting, or should we keep looking for someone else?” (Matthew 11:2-3, NLT)
Is it easy for readers or prospects to message you to get more information about your services and products?
Think about what John the Baptist had to do to get a message to Jesus.
John had been imprisoned for publicly criticizing Herod Antipas, the Roman ruler of Galilee.
He had been obedient to God’s call on his life yet was considered by many to be an oddity. Before his arrest, John had traveled across Galilee and Judea, telling people that the Messiah was coming soon – this, after 400 years of silence from the Almighty. On top of that, John wore camel’s hair clothing (rather than the typical linen, cotton, or wool of the day) and ate wild locusts and honey (rather than the usual diet of bread, wine, fruit, vegetables, dairy products, fish, and meat.)
Now, after devoting his life to herald the Messiah, John sat in prison and heard about what this fellow Jesus was doing.
John wanted to confirm that information. But in that day, he couldn’t punch in a few cell phone numbers and ask a question, nor could he log on and do a Google search or even ask to see the latest newspaper.
John used the best contact method available to him: he sent messengers to confirm Jesus’s identity.
Today there are multiple contact options that prospects can use to reach out to you to ask a question or confirm information. Do you have them in place?
If so, then a prospect can make a phone call, send you an email, complete a contact form on your website – even send a message through a social media portal. If not, then what are you waiting for?
