we’re just happy about what it is that we do and say.

the joy of doing the actual thing that we’re discussing.
As a result, we write. When we write about the things that we enjoy or
find important to us, it’s important to identify the audience. For example, I wouldn’t be effective talking
about baseball if everyone in my audience enjoys
football. I also wouldn’t be effective speaking
negatively about football if the entire audience views football in a positive sense, either. So when we write,
it’s important that we appeal to our audience’
s attention or affection; that way, they can identify with
us in whatever it is that we’re saying so that they too
can appreciate what we enjoy most (in our case, that would be Messiah).
