2 You are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. 3 You show that you are Christ’s letter, delivered by us. You weren’t written with ink but with the Spirit of the living God. You weren’t written on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
2 Corinthians 3:2-3
In this portion of Paul’s letter, he is stating how wonderful it is to see the fruits of ministry in the people that the minister serves ( in his case, the people of Corinth ). It is a delight to see that success in the hearts and in the lives of those folks that they worked with and brought God’s Word to. Paul also makes a reference to how the Holy Spirit worked in them, that “Christ’s letter “ was not written with ink or on tablets ( reference to how the law was given to Moses ), but within their hearts.
Let us pray together – Great Creator , our Loving God – we thank you for the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. Since we were young, we have been taught about Your goodness, Your Grace and mercy to others , how the life of love is indeed a more perfect way. As adults we now want so much to take all that we know about You and spread this to all the nations, so that their hearts and lives can be filled with this same wonderful spirit of hope, understanding and peace. Guide us, Lord, that this can and will happen !! It is in Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
