On my trek from North Carolina back to Kansas, I passed near Joplin, MO and saw a billboard for the Precious Moments Chapel near by. A few precious moments characters were pictured on the billboard, along with the words “Have You Seen His Story?” Cute little characters were waiting to illustrate the news of God’s love, if I only had time to take the proper exit and drop by. But I didn’t.
But that wasn’t the end of it. My writer’s brain grabbed me with strong hands of conviction and stared deep into my soul. And that still, small voice said, “When someone reads one of your books, will they been given the opportunity to see His Story?”
Writers, we are simply ambassadors for Christ on the printed page. So may we agree with the hymn writer and find great joy in telling His Story to our readers. It will be our theme in glory…let’s become accustomed to it here.
