As Christian writers, let us write as giving praises to GOD. In anything we do, let it be an act of worship.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Paul writes,
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
There it is! .… Inherent in Paul’s instruction is to Praise. The key is to rejoice — praising and giving thanks about every single thing, and to pray continuously.
For whom are we writing
Everything is an act of worship when we live as followers of GOD’s Way. Everything. That means our lives are an act of praise and of prayer.
So, when we write, we write for the Father
Our audience may be young people or adults, Believers or secular. But our purpose is to honour the One True GOD and to celebrate His goodness and our ability to express ourselves.
When we doubt our purpose or our calling
Let us turn to Praise. Praise will lift us up. Praise will please the Father. Praise will bring direction, clarity, vision, hope. It builds our faith when it is weak. It strengthens our resolve when we feel uncertain. It brings our breakthrough and honours our GOD.
Let everything that has breath, praise the LORD. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 150:6)
