Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. (2 Corinthians 3:1-3)
Today's Morsel: What do people read when they see you? What message does your life reveal? If we would stop and consider our lives, in many ways we are like billboards. People are passing by and reading us every day. Some may zoom by, while others will take close notice. One of my favorite billboard ads is the one with the green penguin in the midst of all the other black and white penguins. He stands out as being odd and different from the others. What we wear; how we look; how we stand or sit in the crowd. Our attitudes, humor, or even our etiquette sends out a message to others. Paul told the church at Corinth, "Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men." Whether you like it or not, people are reading you like a book. When the fruit of the spirit is in operation in our lives on daily basis, and when people see us, they should be reading Jesus about from every point and part of us. Isn't it a amazing that we still talk about Jesus today? And we only read His story from the pages of the Bible. But His children reflect Him. John said that he supposed that if the books were written of all the things that Jesus did that the world could not contain them. When your life impacts others, it will always be talked about. A book is so much better when you know the author. What has Jesus written in your life that He wants others to see?
Sing: Down from his glory, every lasting story, MY God and Savoir came, and Jesus was His name,. Born in a manger, to His own a stranger, a man of sorrows, tears and agony.
O how I love Him! How I adore Him! My breath, my sunshine, my all in all! The great Creator became my Savior, and all God's fullness dwelleth in Him.
