This is such a beautiful message. I dig up this article every time I need some writing encouragement, and I have sent it to multiple friends – authors or not (you know who you are). 😉 Read it, and read it all the way to the end!
Here’s a quick excerpt from the article– but make sure to go read the rest!
“The Christian gospel has a way of making us all writers in some way, shape, or form. From text messages, emails, and written notes, to church newsletters, missionary support letters, blogs, articles, and even books, everyday Christians do a lot of writing — and chances are you do too.
Christianity is a word-centered faith. Our God created the world through words (Hebrews 11:3; ten times Genesis 1 tell us “God said”), and just as he said, “Let there be light,” so he speaks our faith into existence (2 Corinthians 4:6). God’s own Son is called his Word (John 1:1). And our very faith is sustained by “the word of Christ,” the message of the gospel (Romans 10:13) and ongoing word-ministry in the life of the church.
Christianity is not a quiet faith, but a loud one, full of words.“
Thank you so much for this gem, Mr. Mathis! ~A
