Where is He who has been born King of the Jews! For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him…And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary, His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
-Matthew 2:2, 11, NKJV
As we open our hearts to write the words God has called us to write, let us do so as an act of worship to the King of kings!
If we write for the general book market, may we give Jesus the gift of words that are wholesome, encouraging, and godly instead of words that promote evil or darkness or ungodliness.
If we write for the Christian market, may we give Jesus the gift of words that speak truth and light to a hurting and troubled world instead of words that don’t offer hope or a strong biblical foundation.
May we always strive to honor Jesus through the words we write no matter which market we write for. May this truly be our gift to the Savior as the writers He called us to be. If we do, it will also be a precious gift to the world.
