Be The Letter...

You show that you are a letter of Christ, prepared 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. - 2 Corinthians 3:3

Don't you just love that challenge?! "Show that you are a letter of Christ." Like walking, breathing epistles... emissaries
under Christ's Lordship, ambassadors for Christ's Kingdom. We testify with our very lives to the good news of Jesus.

This isn't just a relaying of information; it is a subsisting on God's revelation. It's
carrying the Word of God in our blood, in the very marrow of our bones.

These are not just idle words for you -- they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess. - Deuteronomy 32:47

I try too often to live by bread alone. In my heart of hearts, however, I want to stop using Jesus, appropriating Scripture, and doing church... and begin trusting Jesus, living Scripture, and being the church.

I want to be a letter of Christ.
