Will Your Books Go Up in Smoke?

I’m not speaking of The Bonfire of the Vanties’ here, nor am I’m referencing a Medieval book burning. I am speaking of something of eternal and lasting value.

Here’s a verse to support my premise.

Support #1-

1 Corinthians 10:31   “Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

Some may say that the world will keep spinning, but most know that the world, even our sun is not eternal. Everything dies including this world. So, for those who find it a moral imperative to leave a legacy behind we have to remember that our legacies are temporal and transient. Most of us after we are gone will cease to be remembered. But for those of us who write we are deciding to leave a deposit for those who may be interested.

Here’s the biblical rub which may rub some the wrong way:

All works done unto the glory of self, that are not done unto the glory of God will be swept away into a vast nothingness. All the time and effort, all the countless hours, all the sweat blood and tears will vanish and be forgotten. Do you smell smoke?

Sorry to burst bubbles.

Support #2

2 Peter 3: 7 “But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.”

Remember the Biblical flood? Water. The second global judgment-fire.

God is going to clean house. His real estate is going to be demolished. Like a painter who wipes his palette clean, he will apply fresh paint and create a new world.

Books will burn…every piece of God-opposed literature will be consumed in the flame.

Every careless word spoken, every atheistic blog post, every agnostic article, every journal filled with anti-Christ rhetoric will be torched with thermal-nuclear heat.

The man-centered books which appeal to their depravity and falleness will be whisked away with great fanfare.

For all evil in all its various forms and subtleties will be unpublished. The memory of them buried with the buried author.

GOD does keep record of all deeds done, every word spoken and unspoken so in one sense it is on file and cataloged. This alone is a frightening reality.

But for us, The Kingdom Writers,’

Our words infused with Gospel-centered intentionality, are in one sense otherworldly. We are a people of the world to come and we write about the King of that world.

Our words will last because they are rooted in and tethered to the great source of truth…the Word of God. And this will ring throughout all eternity.

Make your words count.

Don’t merely look to be an inspiration, but be an agent of transformation. Create for the King.
