Here are 5 Reasons you should Select Christian Blogging as your Niche

If you are still searching for a blogging niche, let me offer you five reasons to consider creating a Christian-focused blog:

  1. There are Several Content Sources

There is a wide variety of content you can develop when you start Christian blogging as there are several sources of content including the Bible, Churches, Christian music, movies, literature and other Christian personalities. If you broaden the scope of your blog, there is no way you will ever lack content. Never.

  1. As you Inspire, you are Inspired

As you create content for others to consume, you get inspired also. If you are the kind of Christian who goes on ‘break’ when situations do not go as you wish, then Christian Blogging must be your preferred niche. When you have to constantly soul-search to create content which will educate and inspire others, you may want to stay on the ‘right path.’ More like practising what you preach.

  1. You’ll be part of the larger Christian Blogging Community

You’ll be amazed at the number of Christian bloggers there are – both locally and internationally. These bloggers are doing very creative things and are waiting to guide, interact and share ideas with you. Don’t be a hermit when you start blogging (both Christian and non-christian bloggers). Comment on other people’s post, follow their blogs and they will do the same to yours.

  1. Your blog can be a tool for Evangelism

You may never know who will be reading your blog but your words in a post can encourage someone and ultimately win a soul for Christ. That also does not imply using the blog as an excuse to not ‘go out and make disciples.’ A blog is just a single tool for evangelism. You may employ other tools as well.

  1. Christian Blogging Develops your Creative Abilities

If you are willing to take this path, then your creative abilities will be developed immensely. As you are given a message, you will have to find ways of communicating it to your various audiences. How are you going to do that? Will it be through visuals, short stories, videos or audios? In what formats are people more likely to click, read and understand the message? That also does not imply ‘deceiving’ people with catchy headlines which are not be related to the post. That is not encouraged.

So there you have them. These are some of the reasons you may want to consider Christian blogging.

Unravelling the Mystery of Ceaseless Prayers 

“Prayer must be very hard. I doubt I can ever pray like these people,”

These were thoughts of young Abu, a man who accepted Christ not too long ago, while he observed a group of believers praying in other tongues.

Abu was born into a typical African Traditional home and had heard tales of a particular faction of Christians – the Charismatics, who were aggressive when praying but this was his first time observing them. 
He never thought praying could be this vigorous and perspiring, however, Abu made a remarkable observation. 

These charismatic Christians prayed for several hours, more rigorously by the time, in a totally different language but they appeared refreshed throughout the process.

This scene kept playing in his mind while he sat in church the following Sunday. Mysteriously, his pastor’s sermon that dwelt  on praying endlessly.

“To pray without ceasing, according to 1 Thessalonians 5:17, means to pray uninterruptedly,” said  Reverend Paul to the joyous congregation who seem to understand what that meant.

“How can that be possible? I don’t think anyone can follow through with this,” Abu thought. 

He grew increasingly confused but nurtured a desire to learn more about this ‘endless’ prayer.

This desire pushed him to interview Reverend Paul after close of service.

“Prayer simply means communicating with God but there’s more to it,” says the Reverend. “Prayer helps you to be conscious of your ‘new’ life in God and grants you means of receiving from Him.”

Conscious of my new life? Abu interjected. 

Reverend Paul noticed it was a good time to dwell on the subject of the new life since that would allow Abu to grasp the subject of prayer better. 

He invites Abu into his office so they could have a detailed discussion on the subject.

Find out how the conversation between the Reverend and Abu transpired in the next part of this post.
