Letter of Christ

2 Corinthians 3:1-3

Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some do, letters of recommendation to you, or from you? You yourselves are our letters of recommendation, written on our hearts, to be known and read by all. And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

"So, what do people discover when they “read” your life? If asked to describe what they learned from the “script of your soul”, would they compare it to the National Enquirer or some other cheap tabloid? Or would they point to evidence in you of a transcendent scribe, an author whose merciful and gracious penmanship has made himself known in how you speak and live and minister among others?"

Interesting commentary on this passage.
