Start first in Jerusalem

And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samara, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8b


After Jesus’ Resurrection and before he ascended into heaven, he commissioned his twelve disciples to share the good news about him with the world. But instead of commissioning them to share the good news first at the end of the earth, he told them to start in Jerusalem.



It’s important to follow the same strategy Jesus gave his disciples when you begin writing for  ministry and  publication. As a new writer, rather than submitting your work to a national publication, start with a local one. For example, submit an article you've written to a local magazine; submit a poem or a devotional  to your church's newsletter; write your own blog and send it to family and friends, or write an opinion-editorial piece and submit it to your local newspaper. As your writings are accepted for publication in the smaller markets and your credibility and confidence increases, the time will come when you’ll be ready to submit your writings to the larger ones.



Are you ready to make an impact on the world today using your Christian writings? Then start first in your Jerusalem.


Sharing the journey,


Jeaninne
