20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20, KJV).
Great writers write from their pain, creating characters full of pathos, letting their readers experience the sweet sorrow at the core of existence. This sorrow permeates the human condition, giving depth to both the writers and their characters who epitomize it. Being crucified along with Christ allows writers to experience the transformation of suffering through rebirth.
Wise writers gain insight . . . gain knowledge through their suffering, descending into darkness to rise again with inspired words, guiding other suffering souls into the light. After being chained to the earth, their spirits soar as eagles circling the sun (Son). Unchained, their spirits fly free.
And, while weaving words that set others free, writers transform themselves. Transformed writers send word wavelets into the world, singing songs of freedom, bringing gifts of joy, sprinkling seeds of love. And when these seeds sprout, love is reborn in the world, carrying Christ’s message on the wind.
