Letters from Jesus

2 Corinthians 3:3  And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered 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.

We may not always realize the impact our lives have on those of others, but it’s a significant matter.  Our experiences with other people can change the way they think or feel about any number of subjects, including God.  How we represent Christ can make a difference in the way others see Him.

Jesus was sent to this earth as a self-revelation from God.  In Him we see all of the attributes of God in human flesh.  He walked the earth and those who lived during that time saw God for what He is.  Now, Jesus ascended back to sit at the right hand of the Father in heaven, so who is left to represent God?

The Holy Spirit was sent to do God’s work in and through us as Christ followers.  Now, we are God’s letters written to human hearts.  We are what people look on and see God’s character (although not perfectly as in the person of Christ).  The Holy Spirit connects our hearts with those of others, helping us bear witness to the work of Jesus and His saving grace.  At times it may not even be something we say or do that draws another to Christ.  It may seem unexplainable how they came to know the Lord through us, but that’s all the more proof that it’s Him doing the work.
