Read Me Like a Book

Last night we overheard one neighbor talking to another neighbor about various people in our apartment community. Then she began obviously Corinthians, Paul's letters, mail, snail mail, cards, envelopes, handwritingdescribing our family and talking about us. We were blessed and humbled by the kind words she said. I am sure there are times my words and actions do not always convey good messages about me, but it is my desire that most of the time my words and actions point to the One who indwells me.

This morning during my Quiet Time I read through 2 Corinthians chapter 3 in The Message. In the first few verses Paul states: “You yourselves are all the endorsement we need. 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. We couldn’t be more sure of ourselves in this–that you, written by Christ himself for God, are our letter of recommendation….Only God can write such a letter….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!”

Your life is a letter….What is it saying about you?
