Writing to make disciples




Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the son and the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19, 20, NLT

I’m always excited to hear when my Pastor puts emphasis on our congregation going outside of the walls of our church to share the good news of Jesus Christ, for it’s just a reminder of our primary purpose as Christians – to go and make disciples.

Did you know that your primary purpose as a Christian writer is also to go and make disciples? For you are called to write words to help others know about the good news of Jesus Christ. You are called to write words to let others know about his compassion, love and concern for others. You are called to write words to let others know of the wonderful plan God has for their lives when they choose to place their faith and trust in him. You are called to write to let others know of his desire to heal them from their deepest hurts and their deepest wounds.

Christian author Marlene Bagnull states: “While we may never never go more than a few hundred miles from our homes, our written words can go around the world and make a difference for all eternity”.

Are you ready to use your written words today to make a difference for eternity? Then go, write and make disciples!

Sharing the journey,


Responding to God’s call to write:

As you reflect on the great commission found in Matthew 28:19-20, in what ways is God wanting to use you today to write to make disciples? Post your answer on my blog. I enjoy hearing from you!
