DAY 13 THURSDAY: AUGUST 2020

A CHRISTIAN IS AN EPISTLE OF CHRIST!

Clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart (2 Corinthians 3:3).

A Christian should take note of the fact that he is the epistle of Jesus Christ in life. The word, “Epistle” simply means the written word, letter or message. Furthermore, a Christian is the written word, letter or message of Jesus Christ to the world in life. The Bible says in the opening text that clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is indeed an epistle of Jesus Christ to the world in life. As an epistle of Jesus Christ he is expected to constantly reflect the glory of God in his life forever.

Jesus Christ is the Word of God that came to dwell in the flesh or human form in life (John 1:14). The Bible tells us that through God’s Word which is Jesus Christ, we were begotten by the Father in life. That is why the Bible says in James 1:18, “Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.” Therefore, God brought forth a Christian by the Word of truth and he became the first fruit of His creation in life. A Christian is an epistle of Jesus Christ because he is begotten by God’s Word in life forever.

Again, a Christian is not only begotten by God’s Word but he is also expected to live and abide forever by the same Word of God in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 Peter 1:23, “Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.” In fact, God’s Word lives and abides forever in the life of a Christian and that is the reason why he is eternally a living epistle of Jesus Christ in life. The Word of God is incorruptible and undefiled in life. Through God’s Word which is Jesus Christ, a Christian becomes born again in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian is an epistle of Christ because through God’s Word which is Jesus Christ, he is begotten and born again in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:18).
