YOU’RE AN OPEN BOOK
(You’re A Living Letter Of Christ)
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.”
It’s not uncommon to find Christians who have the wrong idea that only the minister behind the pulpit should be preaching the gospel. They haven’t understood that preaching is not done only in words, but also in actions, and that we all ought to be witnesses for Christ everywhere we find ourselves. You should know that your life is being read like an open book by the people around you.
Your words, actions, and attitude transmit different signals to the people around you. This is why it matters how you live your life, because it reflects who you really are, and what you really believe. Furthermore, your lifestyle (not just your words) should influence those around you for Christ. In explaining this to the Corinthian church, Paul said to them, “You’re a living epistle (letter).” You’re a living proof-producer that Christ was raised from the dead by God and is alive today. Therefore, it’s important to bear in mind that as a believer, you’re a full legal representative of God’s Kingdom, qualified to bring to the world the good things of the Kingdom.
Be a worthy witness everywhere you find yourself: at home, in your school, and around your neighborhood. Share this life of Christ that you have received generously and influence your world with the grace of the Kingdom.
1 Corinthians 9:2
If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.
My life is for the glory of God. I’m a living epistle, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God, known and read of all men.
