9 Reasons (or more) why Christians should be blogging [31DBBB-2]

Ok, you have probably asked yourself why you, as a Christian, should blog. Perhaps you think you do not know enough, or you have nothing to say. Don't believe that for a moment! You are a human being, with the Spirit of the living God in you; of course you have something to say!

Here are 9 reasons why you should be blogging:

  1. Our God is the Creator of the universe: Surely you have something to say about that. I am sure you have seen amazing things in God's creation, and that is enough to inspire you to write.
  2. To bring glory to God: The first question of the Westminster Larger Catechism asks, "What is the chief and highest end of man?" The answer is given as "Man's chief and highest end is to glorify God (Romans 11:36; 1 Corinthians 10:31), and fully to enjoy him forever.(Psalm 73:24-28; John 17:21-23)" You have something to write about that can bring glory to God!
  3. Jesus Christ is risen!: This fact alone, on which all of Christianity hangs, is good enough to get you blogging. Somewhere in your life as a Christian, you have been impacted by the resurrected Lord of life, Jesus Christ!
  4. You know the most profound good news that this world has ever heard: If you have nothing else to say, you can certainly expound on the salvation that Jesus Christ brought to the earth to save a dying humanity.
  5. No human being is empty: I am sure if you sit for a while and think, you can come up with something to say.
  6. You know something that others may want to read about: I think most people have a problem with blogging because they think that all blogs must be earth-shatteringly creative, containing profundity beyond human wisdom, but this is not true! You can blog about your daily life, being a father/mother, cycling, running, traffic experiences, geo-caching, news, entertainment, technology, science, and so much more!
  7. Blogging is a way of getting to know other people online from all over the world: Soon you will start getting comments on your blog and you will start meeting new people, many of whom also have their own blogs similar to your yours, and then you can learn from them too!
  8. Blogging, and writing in general, helps to keep our thoughts concise and to the point: Sometimes when you just sit their and think, it becomes quite difficult to keep those thoughts together and to the point. Writing helps to keep the mind focused on the point at hand.
  9. Blogging triggers more and sometimes deeper thoughts on a subject: It amazes me sometimes as I write, that one thing literally leads to the next. When you are forced to think on one subject through writing, it actually helps to think further on the subject than you would have if you had simply left it to your thoughts in your head.
  10. You can think of more reasons for yourself: The 10th reason, and those that follow, I will leave up to the reader to think of.
