If your life was a letter, what would it say?

Read: 2 Corinthians 3

2 Corinthians is actually a letter written by the apostle Paul to the Christians living in Corinth. When Paul wrote 2 Corinthians, letters were the main avenue of communication. Letters were handwritten, hand-delivered, and sealed by the writer to show the letter’s authenticity. 

In 2 Corinthians 3:2-3, Paul refers to us as God’s letter to the world. Non-believers may never study God’s Word, but they’ll study God’s people. Jesus’ work in our lives is like a letter showing His amazing grace. 

This may feel like a lot of pressure. But, it doesn’t mean we perfectly follow every law. We try, but the purpose of the law is to show us our sin so we understand we need a Savior. Because we follow Jesus, we get to live in the freedom of the new covenant. And as we get closer to Jesus — understanding more of who He is — He changes us to be more like Him. 

The letter of the law locks us in the prison of rules and regulations. The letter of love unleashes us into a life of liberty.

The letter of the law locks us in the prison of rules and regulations. The letter of love unleashes us into a life of liberty. It’s not whether people see us live up to the law, but it’s whether they see us live a life of love that shows them a picture of who Jesus is. 

Live in the freedom that it’s not the rules we follow that demonstrate our faith, but the difference people see in us as we grow in relationship with Jesus.

Reflect:

  • Are you constantly struggling to live up to the law, or are you experiencing the freedom that comes with living a life of love? 
  • What kind of letter, law or love, do people see when they look at you? Ask Jesus what your next step is toward a life full of His love.
