Did you ever consider that you are a letter to the world, written by Jesus?
“You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, to be known and read by all. 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.” 2 Corinthians 3:2-3
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think of myself as a letter from God written to people in the world. And he wrote that letter to the people who would know you and interact with you.
What kind of a letter are you? Do you encourage others or challenge them? Do you energize them, or deflate them? Do others feel like anything is possible when they interact with you?
Do others feel loved by Jesus because of how you live?
When I consider that I’m a letter written to my family, friends, coworkers, customers and vendors, I am struck by the idea. Is God using me to draw others to himself? Or am I repelling them?
Does your life help others move one notch closer to Jesus?
Today, please consider that you’re a letter from Jesus to the world. The people who have helped you spiritually have contributed to that letter, but in the end, everyone will know the author is Jesus. One day, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess him as the Lord of all. Let’s consider how our life can help others for eternity. It’s not too late.
