second resume


devotional post # 2157

2 Corinthians 3:1-3

2 Cor 3:1 Do we have to demonstrate our qualifications again? Or do we need, as some do, letters of introduction to you or from you?
2 Cor 3:2 You are our letter, written with our hearts, known and read by all men
2 Cor 3:3 because it is being made clear that you are a letter about Christ, delivered by us, written not by ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

second resume

Paul appears to be shaking himself, frustrated at the apologetic tone that he has taken in his letter. If anyone wanted proof of his authenticity and authority as a missionary, they need only look at the Christians in Corinth themselves. Their existence is Paul’s resume. No matter how many degrees we accumulate, no matter how many books and articles we write, no matter how many titles we hold. It is the people we influence who authenticate us.

LORD, thank you for the hearts we touch with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
