You Are A Letter From Christ

As a Christian, whether you realize it or not, you are a letter from Christ. Those that interact and observe you, see you sharing what Christ has done in your life and the way you live because of Him. That means that you are "being read" by those around you and they are hearing your story about your life in Christ.

What kind of letter from Christ are you? What are others hearing and learning from you about the blessings and grace of Christ in your life? 

Are you a:

Complaint letter - constantly highlighting all that is wrong with life and the world and those that are not Christians

Short letter - with little to say because you keep Christ all to yourself

Run-on letter - filled with complexity and mystery about what really is a simple message of God's grace

Resignation letter - letting others know that you tried but are giving up on Jesus and being his follower

Thank you letter - telling real life stories of the way God has been there for you and can change the lives of others

Love letter - sharing words of encouragement, joy, love and praise and the truth about the Good News of Christ and God's love

Today and every day, you represent and reflect Jesus Christ to the world. Are you a letter worth reading? Do you present the love and truth of Jesus to those hearing from you?
Choose your words, message and tone carefully. Remember, you may be the only letter from Christ read today. Make sure you represent Jesus Christ well.

"You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, to be known and read by all. And you show that you are a letter form Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the Living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts." Corinthians 3:2-3
