The Heart

We are epistles

We are studying Second Corinthians in church tomorrow. To prepare, my family read through the book this evening. I found these verses particularly encouraging:

"You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts." -II Corinthians 3:2-3

Each believer is the unfolding of a beautiful story. A story of redemption and grace, of trials and victory, of love and joy. Each is a witness, bearing the Holy Spirit, alight with the life of Christ. How amazing is God's grace toward us! And how exciting is this epistle of life which we even now are seeing written before our very eyes! May God fulfill his plans and hopes in us as we seek His will!
