I believe with all my heart, mind, and soul that heaven is a very real place and I am going to live there forever. I believe that the Lake of Fire is a very real place as well and many of the people I know and care about are going to be tormented there forever and ever. I am going to heaven forever because I have believed in Jesus Christ, trusted Him as my personal savior, and I am following Him as my Lord. I now have the responsibility to share the good news of the free gift of salvation
All of a sudden the number of people that I can have a face to face conversation with is reduced down to mostly immediate family, so how do I share the gospel with people now? The Apostle Paul was a preacher and a church planter with amazing energy and toughness traveling all over the known world on 3 missionary journeys, but he also spent much time in jail because of his faith. While he was in jail he wrote letters back to the churches he had planted and to pastors he had mentored. Paul’s method of evangelism changed when his circumstances changed. The greatest work of Paul is what we have in the New Testament that he wrote teaching us how to know God and live for Him.
So I have made writing my primary method of sharing the good news with as many people as possible. I write my blog every day, praying diligently that God will help me to grow in my writing skill, and that He will give me great wisdom to know what to write and how to write it so people’s minds are captured and their hearts are changed. I also pray everyday that God will prompt people to read my blog, more and more.
So tomorrow I will tell you what has been my most important tool in writing.
