Last week I came up with an idea. I’m going to write blogs about people I know.
I know, it doesn’t sound like an impressive idea, but impressing you is not the point. Power is the point. The people I’m going to write about are living powerful lives. They are demonstrating that there is a better way to live.
In 2 Corinthians, Paul writes to the church at Corinth, “You are our epistle written on our hearts, known and read by all men.” He goes on to say that this epistle or letter of their lives is not written with ink, but is written by the Spirit of the living God. And my friends, that is a point that is often missed.
God is alive. He’s active. He’s present. He’s moving. He’s dynamic. He is not off in some distant place. He is not sitting around watching this whole experiment. He is not withdrawn, detached, or disinterested. God is closer than you think. He’s doing things all around you. And my hope is that through these series of posts, you too will see what I’m talking about. God at work, in people.
One thought on “Living Epistles (Introduction)”
I love the idea of living epistles. Can’t wait to read more.
