An encouraging word about blogging about Jesus, our Christian faith and how we are transforming the world.

Blogging for Jesus - Encouragment for Faith Bloggers

Me, Blogging for Jesus…

First and for most I am so happy you are here! If you are a Christian blogger or soon to be a Christian blogger. I hope this post encourages you and builds you up.

I’ve been a faith blogger for off and on since 2017. Why off and on? Well, I started Think About Such Things in April of 2017 and stopped in November 2017 when my daddy passed away.

I was very close to my dad. He had been battling dementia for about 3 years and I took care of him. His passing came by surprise and it was a very hard transition for my family. But I praise God I will see him again. I know my daddy is having an incredible time with Jesus.

It took about a year and 4 months for me to be able to pick back up blogging.

So, in March of 2019 I started to be active on my blog again. Since then God has blessed my blog with tremendous growth. I’m very thankful and blessed by it.

My heart and passion for my blog are for it to be a place where Christians are encouraged to draw closer to Jesus and Biblically equipped to follow His calling.

Ok enough about me….let’s talk about you! And how you are transforming the world for Jesus!

How Christians Can Transform the World One Post at a Time

We all know there is a lot of people who use the internet. But when you look at statistics things come to light.

According to Statista.com there were 4.3 billion internet users in the world (July 2019). The world population is 7.5 billion…. So, more than half the population has access to the internet. That is a LOT of people!

Now, if we start looking at some social media user stats. (Updated 2019)

3.48 billion people now use social media

  • Facebook – 2.32 billion monthly users
  • Instagram – 1 billion users
  • Twitter – 321 million users
  • Pinterest – 250 million users
  • Youtube – 1.9 billion logged-in monthly users

When I see numbers like that it goes way over my head. I live in California and the population for my whole state is only 39.7 million. All of America is 327.2 million. Basically the size of twitter!

The internet has caused a global impact on people’s lives. Some of it has been for good, but some of it has been for bad.

When I started blogging I didn’t realize how powerful blogs could be.

I have always worked in the church and done ministry with people who are right in front of me. When I started blogging I didn’t really look at it as a very impactful form of ministry.

I was so boxed in with the idea that ministry had to be with people right in front of me. That was my idea of ministry and that’s how you make a difference. That’s when a Lord started to open my eyes.

As Christian bloggers, we have the ability to reach thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are the salt and the light of the world-wide-web.

Touching the world for Jesus through blogging about faith

It’s amazing how much influence and transformation we can bring through what we do on our blogs.

I believe we are doing a great work for the Lord by blogging our faith. We are reaching both believers and non-believers with our teachings.

These are people we would never meet in the four walls of our church.

Now you may be asking how does a blog post transform the world? Let’s look at 4 different ways it can.

4 Ways Blogging for Jesus Can Transform the World

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mark 16:15

1. A Blog Post Can Impact a Future Minister 

When you click publish and your post goes on the web anyone can see it or read it. It reminds me of the story from Billy Graham.

It’s about how Billy visited this really small Church in the middle of nowhere. And a faithful small-town pastor was preaching the Gospel.

He had no idea that there was a little boy in his pews that would get saved through his preaching that night.

That little boy turned out to be one of the world’s most impactful evangelists.

You don’t know who is reading your blog post and what is it doing to them on a spiritual level. You could be writing to future leaders of the church. Your posts could be planting seeds of salvation in the hearts of your readers!

A young Billy Graham could be reading your blog…. Just think about that.

When you impact one, you impact many.

2. Writing about Your Faith is a Form of Ministry

I never thought that blogging would be like ministry in the church, but it is. You are helping believers grow and flourish in their faith like you would at Church.

You are reaching the lost and hurting like you would in church and out on the streets. The only difference is you are doing it with a computer.

Don’t let your idea of what “ministry” should look like stop you from blogging. God can use your blog to touch a multitude of people. A hurting wife, a confused teen, a warn out pastor…

3. Publishing a Post is Evangelistic in Nature

Sometimes we think Christian blogging is only for believers. The thing is when a post goes viral and it’s being shared all over. It is going to be seen by non-believers.

And when they see your blog post they might click on it and they might read it.

We have no idea that the Holy Spirit is working on this person and your post is playing a part in it. The Lord will use what you write to soften that person’s heart towards the Lord.

I pray every morning that my blog would be a blessing to people. I pray that those who don’t know Christ would stumble upon my blog and be touched by the presence of God.

Just think about it 4.3 billion internet users. The harvest is great!

4. A Blog Post is Helping to Equip the Saints

I want to make this very clear for every Christian blogger out there. You are helping equip the saints!

When Christians of all maturity levels come to your website and they start learning and growing in their faith. That is equipping!

When Christians mature and are better equipped they then go out and change the world. They will bring transformation to their families, friends, church, and city.

You could be the very vessel that God uses to take people and help them to mature in their calling in Christ. You also have the ability to reach Christians in nations where they can’t go to church or that Christianity is not allowed.

But they can go on the internet and they can learn about Jesus!

The reason why I wrote this blog post is that I want to encourage those who are blogging in the faith niche.

It doesn’t matter if you’re pageviews are small or if they are huge. You are still bringing an impact on people’s lives.

Those very 4 things are taking place with every post you write!

Don’t underestimate what God has put in you and what God wants to say through you. If He has called you to blog then know that He will put people in front of your blog to be impacted and transformed.

I firmly believe God is breathing in this area. Take courage in the work you are providing. What you do is not in vain, but you will be rewarded.

Before I close this post. I want to go over two key things to remember as a Christian blogger.

Important Reminders for being a Jesus Blogger

Ministry or Blogging

No matter what kind of ministry you do if it’s blogging or in the church (or even both). It should never take first place in your life.

God (your relationship with Him) should always be number 1 and after that your family.

No matter what kind of ministry you do if it’s blogging or in the church (or even both). It should never take first place in your life. God (your relationship with Him) should always be number 1 and after that your family.

If we neglect those two then what example of Christ have we set? God cares more about the “being” than the “doing.” His love for you doesn’t change if you do more “ministry”.

Stay Refreshed & Fed

When we constantly give we can neglect ourselves. We need to make sure we are spending time with God and gleaning from His Word and His presence. We shouldn’t be feeding ourselves to feed others.

We should be so well fed, that out of that we feed others. This will help avoid burnout in the future.


I hope this post has encouraged to keep moving forward with your blog. Stay strong and find encouragement with other Christian bloggers.

Please drop me a comment below. I would love to hear from other Christian bloggers and what God is doing through your blog.

  1. and SO important to think about what we post before we post!

  2. Thank you for this! It was very encouraging to read. I am thankful God would use us through writing.

  3. Thanks for writing this, it’s very encouraging. Amazing to think that God can use my little blog to reach people.

  4. What a wonderful encouragement to us bloggers! Thank you!

  5. Thank you for this! I have been struggling with whether or not I was doing what I was supposed to be doing because of the views I have received. Yet that is silly because on the first day I published my blog, someone reached out and was touched. If just one person is touched, and that one person begins to glorify God through what I have felt led to write then it is all worth it! I was reminded through your post that all the glory goes to God. I am serving him through my blog and continuing to be a positive light and have a positive outlook on this life. Thank you for refocusing my sight to God!

  6. This was such a great post! The two tips at the end really hit home for me. Thank You for sharing this!

  8. I just read your blog and it has encouraged me to continue with my plans to start a blog. I’m presently working on setting up my website. I’m building a site that will explain what Christianity is to a person who is seeking God but doesn’t understand. I’m writing on the fall of man now. God bless you in your endeavors.

  9. Thank you for your honesty and experience. I feel like you just had coffee with me and shared a bit of your heart. Let’s make another date sometime! ; )

  10. Thanks for this post! I am a new blogger and many times I get discouraged by the small page views, but your post really encouraged me, particularly the example with Billy Graham. We never know what God is doing behind the scenes and we should have faith when we can’t see it.

    1. Hi Carey, I am so glad that this post encouraged you. I know starting out can be tough especially when it comes to pageviews. Just be faithful to it…keep writing and ask God for wisdom. He will bless those posts for certain readers. <3

  15. Good morning. I am so happy I somehow found your post. It’s been a year that the Lord impressed this on my heart. I keep making excuses. I don’t have money to start this, l’m not savvy with computers or the language, I’m not a good writer, no one will see it and so on. It just seems so over whelming keeping up with the host and analytics. But He won’t let it go. Can you please share or give me pointers on how to start. Please pray for me.

  16. God bless you for this, I’ve had my blog on blogspot for nearly a year now and I’ve decided to be more serious about its impact and the posts I put up. This was really encouraging and I pray my blog touches peoples hearts and souls and changes them forever regardless of how small t may seem now

  17. AJ Williams says:

    I greatly appreciate this post! I lost my father in April 2020 and he also had dementia; so myself and my siblings had to take care of him. I’ll be starting a faith blog soon and my father, as well as my mother who passed away 3 years ago, are the inspiration behind it. I’m glad you posted this as it has encouraged me in my mourning as well as my life post the loss of my parents. God bless you!

  18. I am a Christian blogger and there were times I wondered if my words were reaching anyone, but your post just reminded me that God will put the people that need those words in front of it.

    1. You are right! God will use the words He gave you in the lives of others. He directs the hearts of kings and He directs our hearts. “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.” Proverbs 21:1 (NIV)

  19. You have really inspired me, thank you. It’s cool to see God leading believers to write about their faith. There are so many people that need to hear our testimonies and what God continues to do in our lives. Blogging is a great way to also build community and connect with others in different parts of the world. This article was really encouraging. Keep writing for the Kingdom. God bless.

  20. This is so true. I’m new to blogging as a Christian. I felt as though God wants me to use blogging to minister to others. I’m not an I’m person social individual, however, I love to write and tell stories. I feel like Moses. I’m called to minister, yet I have a verbalized impediment. This was a good read & so edifying & encouraging. Thank u

  21. Thank you for your words of encouragement. I currently have had thoughts for the past few months about beginning a blog or using my instagram. I have been praying about it and would like to begin. But I dont know where to begin because I dont want to delete my previous posts on instagram. Would a new one be a way to go?
    Thank you for your help.

  22. So true blogging for Christ is a ministry, evangelism and more. It helps get the Word out there and to the World. Thanks for sharing. Steve from CourageousChristianFather.com

  23. Thank you so much for this encouragement! I’ve been blogging for about 5 years, but my current blog just turned 3 years old this week- delightindifferent.com. Sometimes it just feels like I’m not reaching anyone, or that I’m not reaching the people I want to reach. But really I have no idea how God can use my words (that he’s given me) to impact others for the kingdom. Thank you so much for sharing!

  24. Thank you for sharing this! I feel very encouraged by this! May the Lord continue to bless you in every area of your life!
