Write It Down

1 Chronicles 16:8
Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.  Let the whole world know what he has done.

So what if…
No one ever wrote anything down?  Like, all the evangelists who write their messages, the great ministers of the ages, all the way back to Moses, the Prophets, and the Apostles.  What if no one ever shared his or her knowledge, and revelations, and experiences?  How would we have learned about God, and Jesus, and The Holy Spirit—only by word of mouth?  We all know how that goes.  One person tells something, then another repeats it but misses a few phrases, the next one enhances the story with a few thoughts of his/her own, and before you know it, the story is way different from what actually happened. 

That is why it is so vital to write things down; even if you think your story is not that great, or your writing skills are not polished.  When you get a word from the Lord, write it down.  That way you can remember exactly what it was in its entirety, and you can share this word with others, which is most likely what we need to do with that word anyways.

We are vessels.  Things need to flow through us to others.  Writing is one way that God might use us.  If we do not pass along things that we hear from the Lord, or other blessings we received from Him, we become like the Dead Sea, where things flow in, but nothing flows out.  Very soon, everything becomes stagnant and the life in it dies off. 

Keep it flowing!  Write it down.  Share it with others, all the way to the ends of the earth.  Use the Internet to share God’s message of the Good News of Salvation available through His Son, Jesus Christ.  E-mail, tweets, facebook, chat rooms; all these avenues are available to us to broadcast His message of love and redemption.  Write about everything that you learn.  Something that may seem simple and insignificant to one may just be the word that will save the soul of another.

Isaiah 64:3
When you came down long ago, you did awesome deeds beyond our highest expectations.  And oh, how the mountains quaked!

Psalm 96:3
Publish his glorious deeds among the nations.  Tell everyone about the amazing things he does
