letters

PRAY

Father God we thank you that your Spirit is in us. Thank you that when we become a new creation that you put your Spirit in us and begin to guide and use us. Lord open our eyes to the reality of who you say we are, and work in our hearts to change us into who you see us to be…

WRITE

READ 2 Corinthians 3:1-3

“Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some do, letters of recommendation to you, or from you?  You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our[a] 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 3:3

  • As Paul writes to the Corinthian church, what does he call them?
  • Who was the letter from?
  • Who was the letter to?
  • Who was used to write the letter?
  • On what was the letter written?
  • What story of transformation has the Spirit written on your heart?
  • How can you be a letter from Christ today?

GROW

Dear Father God, you have put your Spirit in our hearts for a purpose. Yes – to reconcile us to you and to seal us for eternity – but also so that we can be your letter to the world. A letter from Christ and written by you. Lord work in our lives today so that we can be a witness to your love for us and for the world. May you use us as you used Paul to encourage others and to show them a picture of who you are. May we be open to your guiding today and every day so that our lives will be a living sacrifice and evidence of your glory. In Jesus name…amen!

“A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
Proverbs 15:1

I sometimes shudder to think of what I must sound like when I respond angrily to my kids. Lord may you give us hearts that love earnestly and answer softly.

Read all of Proverbs Chapter 2 – One of my favorites!

My son, if you receive my words
    and treasure up my commandments with you,
making your ear attentive to wisdom
    and inclining your heart to understanding…
Then you will understand righteousness and justice
    and equity, every good path;
 for wisdom will come into your heart,
    and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
 discretion will watch over you,
    understanding will guard you,
 delivering you from the way of evil.

Proverbs 2:1-3, 10-12

If…Then! If we seek after God’s word, Then He gives us understanding which guards our hearts and protects us from evil and temptation. Praying you will “hear” the wisdom of the Lord today!

As in water face reflects face,
    so the heart of man reflects the man.”
Proverbs 27:19

What is your heart reflecting today? Jesus reminded us that it is from our hearts that our mouth speaks (Mark 6:45). What are your words saying about your heart? Ask the Lord to create in you a pure heart so that you can walk in His ways and love with His love. Praying…

It’s been a long time. The Lord took me on a beautiful journey on a different path of service to Him. But, He has directed me back to this one. Next week I will begin blogging again. Pray for me. That I will honor our Precious Savior Jesus in all I write and share.

Get Ready…We’ll be digging Deep into Romans 12:9-21

He is worthy!

Revelation 5:13

“And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,

‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!’”
Revelation 5:13

  • Who is pictured here worshiping God and the Lamb (see also Romans 8:19)?
  • What strikes you about this kind of woship and who is seeking the Lord?
  • This includes you!  You are part of God’s creation…write the words of praise spoken in this passage in Revelation.
  • Now write you own praise to the Lord of Lords & the Lamb that has taken away the sins of the world!
