You Have a Commission
As Christians we are commanded by Jesus to teach all nations of His love, His sacrifice on the cross, and His redemptive power - even the book nations. So many strong Christians and talented writers have been influenced by the enemy into thinking that our fiction shouldn't be Christian, that it doesn't have to be godly to impact others, and worse - that "preachy" fiction will never reach a secular reader.
But that isn't true. God has called us to speak light and life into darkness, and the only way we can do that is with the Word of God and the Holy Spirit - not with generic inspirational messages that go in one ear and out the other. If we are going to reach the hearts and souls of men, women, and children who don't know Christ, then we must plant a seed. If we are going to fulfill our purpose on this earth as disciples of Jesus and children of God, then we must work for the Lord and not for men, bringing glory and honor to Him in all we do.
That's a big task, I know, and most of us feel that we're not up to the challenge - but guess what? Christ has equipped us with all we need to write stories that edify Him and impact our readers – so don’t ever think you can’t do it.
Book Nations was created with you in mind. Whether you're feeling discouraged in your efforts, are uncertain of your calling, or have the newfound desire to write for the Lord and not for men, then this is the place to be. The purpose of this blog is to show you that you can write Christian fiction and to teach you how.
