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: Whose church do you belong to? What church do you attend, and when people see you can they tell that you belong to that church? Do your actions and character reflect the teachings of that church? One of the things about being a true Christian is that one’s life will reflect what they are being taught both at home and at church. Paul told the church at Corinth that they were his epistle known and read of all men. So when people see you what are they reading? Are they reading about Jesus when they see you, or are they reading about the world?
Sing: He said if I be lifted up, if I be lifted up; He said if I be lifted up, I will draw, I will draw all men unto me.
