“Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you.” Paul is telling the Corinthians that he doesn’t need letters of recommendation from them. Their lives are evidence of the successful ministry Paul and his team had begun with them.
He tells them that “This letter is not written with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on tablets but on human hearts.”
Paul continues to minister to us today. As we read and meditate on Paul’s letters to the Corinthians, the Spirit of the living God carves His truth into our hearts. It’s there forever. It’s eternal.
For those of us reading through the Bible this year, we’re 3/4 of the way through. I’m so proud of us keeping up or catching up as we let God word saturate our year 2012. Has he revealed new things to you? He has spoken just at the right time so you could have some wisdom for a situation in your life?
God has done all of those things for me this year and more! I’m looking forward to these last 4 months of reading – what has God been preparing us for?
Let’s keep going and find out!
