Yesterday I read an article about blogging. The article is by an author I read regularly. He says in order to be a successful blogger you have to focus your blog on what you are passionate about. The more you narrow your focus, the more you broaden your audience.
At least at this point, I am very fortunate. I have one passion, and I know only one area. Some authors have so much to write about they can go in many different directions. I only know one area. I don’t have to worry about focus. If I don’t write about Pastoral Leadership and Christian Living, I have nothing to say.
This became a painful realization for me several years ago when I received a gracious invitation to speak to a civic group about “something other” than religion. Once the presentation ended, I knew that I have nothing to say about anything other than faith in Christ!
So what’s the point?
Simply this. Beginning next Sunday, I will begin writing about a different passage of Scripture each Sunday. The Scripture and how it relates to my life and yours is my passion and focus. While I have a lot of interests, I am passionate about this one area.
This new subject for each Sunday is exciting to me. I really can’t wait. I want to take one verse or a particular passage of Scripture and do my best to help you see its meaning and relevance. If you are a new believer or someone who wants to go deeper with God, this feature will be for you.
I especially hope to help children and teens understand the Bible. If you have someone in your family who fits that description, please let them know about the blog. Like all of my blogs, I intend to write a brief article (300-500 words) to help kickstart your thoughts for the day.
Each Sunday we will look at a passage which I think every believer should know and understand or one which I want to know and understand. In either case, we will have the opportunity to learn together.
I have written the blog almost daily since last July. It’s been fun to watch the readership grow. Thank you for reading and commenting. You are a blessing to me.
