Are you a kingdom writer? In this post I'll share five characteristics of a kingdom writer.
But first, I'll begin by answering what is a kingdom writer?
Kingdom writers are inkhorn writers, scribes, creatives, and ordinary people called to build the kingdom of God by publishing words that impact lives.
Kingdom writers are co-creators with God (Matthew 6:33) in their discipleship, educating, and sharing Father’s heart to the world through the written word.
I am sure some may ask, but isn't the kingdom and Christian writer the same?
Yes and no.
While kingdom and Christian writers both write from a Christian perspective, the kingdom writer applies kingdom principles and protocols to their scribal writings.
Whereas, if not careful, Christian writers can get wrapped up in religious legalism and allow his or her scribal motives and spiritual insight to become tainted by a mixture of worldly aspirations.
Kingdom writers focus on God's kingdom strategies to impact lives.
Focus is defined as, “a center of activity, attraction, or attention; a point of concentration.” For example, if finding a new job is your focus, you will place your attention, energy, and direction toward getting a new job.
Your focus becomes the mission of your vision.
Kingdom focused writers place their full “activity, attraction, and attention” toward seeking and pleasing God in their scribal publications.
God's vision is the mission of the kingdom writer's assignment. (Habakkuk 2:2)
