YOU ARE THE EPISTLE OF CHRIST

TEXT: 2 CORINTHIANS 3:3
“Clearly you are the epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God. Not on tablets of stone; but on tablets of flesh, that Is of the heart.”
As believers; the kind of life we live is being read by people around us. We are not living in this world unobserved; somebody somewhere is looking at you. What unbelievers are doing that people will not remark, if you as a believer indulge yourself in such thing, your Christianity will be questioned. Our scripture reference says we are the epistle of Christ written not with INK but by the SPIRIT. As long as you are genuinely saved, the Spirit of God has taken his place in you, thus you are not expected to do things in your old way any-more. Your living should be guided by the Spirit of God living in you.


Believers are living bibles (the epistle not written in ink). Unbelievers want to see you the example of God in your attitude, they want you to live what you preach, because we are their Bible written not with ink that they want to read. Some people may deliberately stir a problem so that they can see your reaction and know if you are really doing what you preach. The scripture says we should let everything that we do, be to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). Don’t wait till you get to church or when you are on the pulpit before you will put on your “Christ like garment”. Always remember that all eyes are on you as a follower of Christ, therefore use everything in you to preach the gospel and bring people to the kingdom of God. It is not enough to preach the gospel with your mouth, while your character and your attitude scare them away from coming to God. Having a good attitude towards everybody makes evangelism to become easy; people will be willing to come to Christ without much ado, if we live right. The bible that unbelievers would read is what they read in the lives of believers. There is a widely held saying that says “seeing is believing.” it is when unbelievers are convinced by our character and attitude that they will love to serve our God, Therefore live right daily.
