Living Letters of Christ

2 Corinthians 3:3—“Since you are being manifested that you are a letter of Christ ministered by us, inscribed not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone but in tablets of hearts of flesh.”

Note 4 on hearts says: “Our heart, composed of our conscience (the leading part of our spirit), our mind, our emotion, and our will, is the tablet in which the living letters of Christ are written with the living Spirit of God. This implies that Christ is written into every part of our inner being with the Spirit of the living God to make us His living letters, that He may be expressed and read by others in us.”

Cross-reference “d” on hearts directs us to these verses:

Hebrews 8:10: “For this is the covenant which I will covenant with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will impart My laws into their mind, and on their hearts I will inscribe them; and I will be God to them, and they will be a people to me.”

Proverbs 3:3: “Do not let lovingkindness and truth forsake you: bind them around your neck; write them upon the tablet of your heart.”

  1. How awesome that we as believers are letters of Christ! I really want others to read and know Christ in me wherever I go. Every day there can be a fresh message with Christ as my content.

  2. I like the fact that God wants to make us living letters of Christ by inscribing Himself in our hearts with the Spirit as the divine “ink.” The more we give Him the opportunity to write in us, the more others will be able to see Christ expressed through our lives and be drawn to Him. “Lord, inscribe us with your Spirit more each day so others can read You in our lives.”

  3. FOR WE ARE UNTO GOD!
    CHRIST’S
    VICTORY…..
    IN EVERY PLACE THE FRAGRANCE OF LIFE UNTO LIFE OR THE FREAGRANCE
    OF DEATH UNTO
    DEATH AND WHO IS SUFFICIENT UNTO THIS….
