For those that may have noticed, I for some reason have been writing a lot recently. I do not completely understand why other than it is the work of God in my heart, and this a lot of times is the way that I express that. My writing stems from my desire when I began my walk in the faith to share my experiences with others. When I learn something, I desire to tell others so that they can learn too and not go the ways that I have gone. I want people to turn to God first before they make the same mistakes that I have made or just mistakes in general that turn them away from Christ.
I do not write for the glory of man, though at times it is a struggle especially with something so public. Whenever the praise of man enters into the equation, it is easy for us to become puffed up in that instead of giving the glory rightly to God. As far as I know, all my writing has been for His glory and not mine. I do not write things (unless it’s say a survey…and that’s obvious) unless they somehow edify, challenge, and point towards God. I want to say this with all humility, I am not a good writer. I listen to music by artists, especially moreso Christian ones and I can see the inspiration and talent to go along with their lyrics. I am nothing compared to that. In my other writing, I cannot compare either. Please do not think that I am writing just so that people see or notice me, that is far from what I want. Read what I have written, I want God to get the glory for what He is doing and not myself. He is the only one that is worthy of all of our praise. So if you like something that I write, give the glory to God that He is using it and using me as His vessel.
For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
