Not With Ink

You are known and read by all men. 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 3:2-3 (NKJV)

You may be the only “letter from Christ” that many are presently reading.  One of the ways to consider what it means to “hide God’s Word in your heart,” is that as you meditate on His Word, by His Spirit, He’s writing it on your heart for others to read.  They’ll read it in…

  • your treatment of them and others
  • the words they hear from your mouth
  • your reactions to situations
  • how you talk about other people

I remember, as a young Bible Student, being bowled-over by the quip, “Your actions are speaking so loud that I cannot hear a word that you’re saying!”  It’s so true, isn’t it?  We’re far more apt to believe someone’s actions over their words.  Charles Spurgeon, known among his peers as “The Prince Of Preachers,” said it this way:

Sincerity makes the least man to be of more value (more fruitful) than the most talented hypocrite.”
