They said he said, “Go west, young man.” Whether he did or not, Horace Greely is considered by many as the greatest editor that ever lived. Founder of the New York Tribune, he was one of the most influential men that lived in the 1800’s.

Seeking good writers, avoiding sensationalism, the “Tribune” was regarded as a provider of credible news. Greely was the first editor to provide bylines for writers and his editorials had great impact among the masses. The legacy of his work continues to effect writers today.

But, was Greely the greatest editor ever? One before him has that distinction.

The apostle John was a prisoner on the Island of Patmos when he heard, “What you see, write in a book…” It became part of the only book ever written that contain no errors. Can I say it this way; the perfect editor edited it perfectly, and inspired the writers that wrote it.

Christian writers today find direction and inspiration through reading the Bible. It challenges us to be faithful in doing the little things, to give generously, to right wrongs, to share God’s love. We are writing the story of our life, and for others.

If we have sought the guidance and approval of the greatest editor ever – the author and finisher of our faith, then boldly submit for publication. Jesus has work for us to do.

R. G. Lee was known far and wide for his sermon Payday Someday. The greatest payday a Christian writer can have is to hear our editor, our Lord and Savior, say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

This editor doesn’t say “Go West.” Instead, He invites whosoever will to come. That is the underlying theme of Christian writings.

This was an interesting article. I like how you compared and contrasted the editors we know to Our Lord and Savior. It's true that he wrote the only book without any typos. ;) Thanks.

An interesting approach on the topic. Our Lord is the Editor of our lives and I agree with you on that. I like the point you brought up about "We are writing the story of our life, and for others." That's what I do when I write devotionals. I write about my life in Christ to share to others what great things the Lord has done. We certainly ought to seek His guidance when writing for Him and His people, to pen down what God would have us write. Thanks for sharing this.
