Known and Read by Everyone


I don’t get mail much anymore.

Sure, I get a lot of advertisements.

Come buy a new car!

Our insurance is the best!

This credit card will work for you!

But real letters?

Written by a real person, just to me?

Asking me how I’m doing, telling me how they’re doing?

That’s rare.

I’m not any less popular or cared for than I used to be, it’s just that texting, emails and social media have taken the front seat when it comes to staying in touch with people.

Paul wrote these words about letters to the church in Corinth:

You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. 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.

—2 Corinthians 3:2-3

Have you ever considered yourself to be a letter?

Something to be known and read by everyone?

A letter from Christ?

Written by the Spirit of God?
