Paul and Timothy sent these words to the church of God in Corinth:
You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. 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.
II Corinthians 3:2,3
Many years ago when I decided to accept God’s forgiveness and follow Him, a young woman gave of her time every week to disciple me. Only a few years separated us in age. I was a new Christian; she was more mature in her walk with Christ.
Each week, we would meet for about an hour. When I look back on those times, I am grateful that she nurtured me in the faith.
As I consider the moments she spent with me, could I possibly consider myself to be one of her letters? Was her concern for me and my spiritual well being written on her heart for all to see and read?
Do I continue to be a letter from Christ—a result of her ministry, written on human hearts?
