GROWING IN CHRIST

"Inked By God"

Date published: 07/04/2010

2 Corinthians 3:2-3 “You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for 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.”  (NASB)

What an incredible Scripture to describe the end result of one’s walk with Christ!  Your life as a Christian will become a letter to the world.  Your letter about Christ will affect others in some way concerning their beliefs about Christ.  As a follower of Christ, you should positively represent Him through your life, work, fruit, and character.  The attributes of your life should show others of the power, character, and love of Christ.  This could easily be a burden… if it were not for the author of your letter—the Holy Spirit!  How can you allow God to better write the letter of your life?  The start of allowing God to ink His life in you is to develop a personal, responsive, and dynamic relationship with Him every day through prayer, Bible reading, and obedience.  The more you know Christ and build relationship with Him, the more you will be challenged to submit every aspect of your life to Him.  Can you visualize your life in the hands of Christ?  See His arms around you forming and directing your life as a great instrument for His love and purpose.  Allow God to write the letter of your life so that your letter is one that not only brings glory to Him, but others to Christ! 

Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God” (NIV)

Lamentations 3:22-23 “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases. His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness.” (RSV)
