Writer, for whom are you writing? The answer to that question will determine the content of your writing, the purpose of your writing, and the destiny of your writing.
As believers, our paradigm of purpose centers totally and only on Jesus Christ. We write for Him, about Him, in Him, and through Him. Every word that flows through our fingers–whether via the pen or the keyboard–must exalt Him and Him alone. He is the Beginning, the End, and Everything in between.
Too often we are tempted to write for our own glory, but His way and His will are that we write for His glory. He alone is worthy of all glory, all honor, and all praise. For out of Him comes our writing gift, and to Him that gift must be consecrated. Without Him, we have no writing gift. With Him, our writing gift is sanctified and given meaning and influence.
So be filled with joy at the great privilege that is ours. The privilege of writing for King Jesus and for His Kingdom.
When all is said and done, we write for an Audience of One.
