2 Cor 3:2

2 Corinthians chapter 3 verse 2 reads, “You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody.”

It’s a letter from Paul to the Corinthian people where he states with confidence that the people themselves – changed lives – are the fruit of his ministry and the letter of commendation for his team.

Isn’t that a cool thought? Defining ministry success by changed lives?

I hurt when people leave Antioch because I wonder if we’ve failed them.  If programs, events or other distractions have kept us from ministering to them.  I have to remember no church ever kept 100% of its people.

It’s a good guide, however.  Are the people, rather than the programs, becoming the letter of commendation for our work?

Paul continued, “You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”

I pray that our ministry may always be driven by the Spirit of the living God and that it may always reach to the level of human hearts.

I pray the church itself, the people, may be our letter.
