You Are A Living Letter - Read By All



You are a living letter - read by all!

2 Corinthians 3
1 -3 "Does it sound like we're patting ourselves on the back, insisting on our credentials, asserting our authority?
Well, we're not.
Neither do we need letters of endorsement, either to you or from you.
You yourselves are all the endorsement we need."
o
You are a letter that anyone can read...
o
"Your very lives are a letter that anyone can read by just looking at you.
Christ himself wrote it—not with ink, but with God's living Spirit; not chiseled into stone, but carved into human lives—and we publish it.
4 -6 We couldn't be more sure of ourselves in this—that you, written by Christ himself for God, are our letter of recommendation.
We wouldn't think of writing this kind of letter about ourselves.
Only God can write such a letter.
His letter authorizes us to help carry out this new plan of action."
o
How does a living letter come to be?
o
"The plan wasn't written out with ink on paper, with pages and pages of legal footnotes, killing your spirit.
It's written with Spirit on spirit, his life on our lives!"
o
The Spirit of God in our lives, makes us a letter to be read.
A living letter, bearing good news...
