What the Word of God Means to Me As a Writer

Gone is the speed.

There is more thought now.

Better care.

Openness for correction.

Even greater responsibility.

But more zeal, thirst, and love.

And it's all for JESUS.

That's how my life has changed since GOD made me born again on 6 September 2019.

As a writer and lecturer, I deal with words.

But why must I exercise greater care with thoughts and words more than ever? 

Because words, written or spoken, have power.

Matthew 12:36-37
King James Version
36 But I say unto you, 
That every idle word that men shall speak, 
they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, 
and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

A writer with Christ in her heart, must really take more love and care in the choice of thoughts and words.

Words can either be a blessing or a curse:

James 3:10
King James Version
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth 
blessing and cursing. 
My brethren, 
these things ought not so to be.

Ideally, all my words will have come from the HOLY SPIRIT alone, the One Jesus asked His Father to help us:

John 14:16-17
King James Version
16 And I will pray the Father, 
and he shall give you another Comforter, 
that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; 
whom the world cannot receive, 
because it seeth him not, 
neither knoweth him: 
but ye know him; 
for he dwelleth with you, 
and shall be in you.

When you become a true believer and follower of Christ, everything changes.

You change, your life changes, your work changes, your manner changes, you are simply a changed person.

You only profess and reflect all things Jesus in every aspect of your life, work, word, and deed.

You become a true follower of Jesus, believing that He is the SON of GOD, sent by the Father, and have come to save the world:

1 John 4:14
King James Version
14 And we have seen and do testify 
that the Father sent the Son 
to be the Saviour of the world.

And maybe the verse below applies to those of us who are renewed in spirit, with new work to do:

Mark 2:22
King James Version
22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: 
else the new wine doth burst the bottles, 
and the wine is spilled, 
and the bottles will be marred: 
but new wine must be put into new bottles.
