The #WhyIWrite is all over Twitter today, and it got me thinking about the why of my writing.
Here’s why I write:
“I pray that he may grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with power in your inner being through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know Christ’s love that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us — to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:16-21 CSB
- I want to help, as best I can, God’s people comprehend God’s high-voltage love for them in Christ.
- I want my brothers and sisters to be rooted and established and flourishing in his love.
- I hope we can be strengthened by his power as we ponder his grace and love for us.
- And may God be glorified by the Church in this generation and the ones to come.
Only God can do this. And God uses our words, sentences, sermons, counseling, ministries—and writing.
Ephesians 3 captures why I write.
