Ten Suggestions for Christian Bloggers

Timely wisdom for Christian bloggers. I’ve been blessed by this blog post. Through this post, I’ve realized that I should be more careful and discerning of the things that I write in my blog posts for as as Christian – I’m an ambassador for Christ.

10 Suggestions for Christian bloggers:

10. Remember that you are an ambassador of Christ.
