LETTER WRITERS FOR JESUS
You are the light of the world.
This post comes fresh on the heels of a little victory: After submitting it on five separate occasions (twice in hard copy)—and personally calling the Editor three times—I finally prevailed on the staff of our (quite liberal) local newspaper, the Press Democrat, to publish a letter on a subject close to my heart: the sanctity of marriage.
In a moment, I will share it with you.
But first, an exhortation: Would you please give some prayerful consideration to becoming a habitual letter writer for Jesus?
The rewards are many.
It will deepen your grasp of the biblical worldview, forcing you to discern the proper application of biblical truth to the great issues of our time.
It will sharpen your skills as a researcher, thinker, and writer.
If your letters are published (and good ones usually are), it will give the Holy Spirit an opportunity to teach, convict, and encourage your non-christian neighbors.
God willing, it will nudge public opinion and the surrounding culture towards God and his truth, thus improving the quality of life in our community and nation.
It will encourage your brothers and sisters in Christ: As they see other believers thoughtfully, courteously, and fearlessly speaking up for the truth, they will not only be gladdened, but also emboldened to do the same.
And above all, it will bring pleasure and honor to the Lord.
