Weekday devotionals for Christians

What is Your Story?

2 Corinthians 3:2-3
(2)  Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
(3)  Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

These are interesting verses.  We are a letter from God, written to this lost world.  Think about that………………………   No Pressure!   Ha ha…

Seriously though, this is a great thought to send to you today.  If a non-believer in Jesus were to “read your book”, what would He read?  This is a convicting thought to me because there are areas in my life that need to be worked on and improved.  Being imperfect and greatly loved, we are forgiven by God…and He forgets too!  Regretfully, I have found that people do not forget so easily.

If someone’s eternity and their ability to trust in Christ was greatly effected by one of Christ’s followers.  And that follower was you, how would you go about your day?  Would you change anything?  My toes are being stepped all over right now.  Let’s do our best to be a great epistle for others to read during this time of fear and panic.  We all will encounter a variety of people today and this weekend.  Let us all determine to be the type of epistle that would draw others to Christ!

Here is a poem that you might appreciate:

The Gospel is written a chapter a day
By the deeds you do and the words you say
Men read what you say, whether faithless or true
Say, what is the Gospel according to you?
