YOU’RE GOD’S MESSAGE
(The Letters Of Christ To The World)
TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 3:2-3 NASB
“You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for 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.”
As you study the Word of God, it’s important you don’t miss the points that the Spirit of God wants you to grasp. An example of such powerful and important truth is what the Apostle Paul gives in today’s scripture: you’re the letter of Christ, written by the Spirit of God. What does this mean? It means you’re God’s message to the world—you’re His Word! Hallelujah! No wonder Jesus says you’re the light of the world. God is using you to give a message to the world every day; that’s why you’re so peculiar!
John wrote concerning Jesus, “…The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). When they saw Jesus in Bible days, they saw the Word walking, talking and living amongst them. No wonder they called Him “Emmanuel,” meaning “God with us!” Back then, anyone who wanted to know what God was like would only have to look at Jesus.
But today, in the New Testament, anyone who wants to see God’s Word alive should look at you! You’re the letter of Christ today. So, when you study the New Testament, you’re looking at yourself. You might not agree with this, but James 1:18 says, “Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth…”; meaning that you’re born of the Word of God. If you’re born of the Word of God, then you’re one with the Word. Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. You’re the offspring of the Word of God. So, who are you? The Word—His letter! Glory to God!
I’m not an ordinary person; I’m the epistle of Christ. When you look at me, you see the manifestation of the Word of God. I’m a message read of all people, and because of me, many are coming to the knowledge of Christ! Glory to God!
