1 John 2:20 “But you have been anointed by the Holy One, …” ESV
I have never been a very good writer, this is to my much pondering regret. However, every now and again it seems that the Lord Jesus sees fit to give me some thing of value to write, pouring out upon it His fresh anointing. When He does this it comes alive and seems to carry upon the very words themselves, a dimension of power and life that is only possible through the Lord Jesus Christ. While this doesn’t in anyway make me a better writer, it does encourage me that what has been written has its source in the Lord Jesus Christ.
So much is it my desire to be and do all things under the Lord’s anointing, that whatever I do, say, and in this case write, bothers me deeply when I realize that it isn’t or might not be genuinely anointed. In all honesty, I truly realize that not everything I do, say and write is actually anointed of the Lord Jesus Christ!
