I’ve heard people call the Bible God’s love letter to us, and it is. However, did you realize that each one of us is a love letter to the world from God? Listen to what Paul tells the church in Corinth:
“You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, to be known and read by all. And you show 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
If you haven’t noticed, all the Greek words for love that we’ve been pondering this month deal with relationships with people. When we love our families, our neighbors, our friends, our fellow church members, or complete strangers we are simply instruments, used by God, to deliver His love to the world. That’s quite a responsibility. God’s love may be perceived and experienced through us. Everyone you meet won’t read the Bible, but they will read about God through your life.
What kind of letter will you be?
