Write it down

“The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen.” (Acts 1:1,2)

Writing does not seem to be important, but it is essential. What if the Holy Scriptures did not exist? How would we know about the greatness of our God?

Writing is more effective than talking because it follows a line of thought. It requires more concentration from us.

When we write, we pay more attention to the facts. We don’t want to let important things go unnoticed.

When I read the Bible, I make a point of copying the verse, because I’ve learnt that every word, every comma, every letter is important. If I only read, I can’t fully grasp the spirit behind those words because we normally read faster than we write.

Every time I make a note in my diary or post a message on my blog, I am exercising my brain and, at the same time, I am giving importance to the Word of God.

Reading the Bible or quoting a verse is not enough. I need to take the time to meditate on it so I may have life and, consequently, be able to pass it on to my blog readers. 

What if I did not meditate on it? What if I were not interested? Where would the people who are under my responsibility be? And how would I handle the many problems and pressures?

Dear reader, every word we write is recorded, and the only way to get rid of it is to destroy the paper. Several years may pass, but what you’ve written down will remain intact — just as the Word of God has remained intact.

I am sure that the day Jesus takes me to be with Him, the words I’ve written down will remain intact. In this way, I will be able to win souls even though I am no longer on this earth.

What about you, dear friend? Do you think making notes is important? Do you just read and speak about the Word of God, or do you record it in a special way?

Do you agree that when you write about something, years may pass, yet every time you read your notes you’re able to relive that experience?

Write down everything God speaks to you. Write it down, and you will never forget it; several years will pass, but what God spoke to you will remain intact.

    Yes it’s true and amazing how when God speaks to us we write it down, and when we go back to it we relive the experience and also are helpful to us 🙂

  5. I started doing this especially in services as I wanted to remember everything the pastor said and I also do it when reading the Bible as it helps me to remember what I got from the chapter or verse I read so I can always refer back and practice it. And now your post has helped me realise I can even use my notes to save others.
