Do you wonder what are the characteristics of blogging as a ministry?
Here is a sneak peek of my guest post for COMPEL Training Blog about the 5 characteristics of blogging as a ministry.
Do you remember the first time you felt God’s call to start blogging and writing for His glory as a Christian blogger? Did He give you a specific word or a message, or perhaps He talked to you through people?
Blogging as a Ministry
God’s invitation to start blogging was a process in my life. God talked to me through His Word, forming my identity as a writer, preacher, and poet. I treasured every specific word and its interpretation and wrote them down in a special notebook.
And then a day came when, while I was reading a blog post, God used a couple of sentences in this post to tell me clearly and without a doubt that I should start a blogging ministry. Yes, a ministry. From the beginning, it was clear this was not just writing, and it was not about me. It was initiated by God, meant to be carried through His power and for His glory, to encourage and inspire people.
