An Open Letter

You are a letter from Christ … written not
with ink but with the Spirit of the living God.
                —2 Corinthians 3:3

Everybody thinks about writing a book, but few ever do.

You may never get around to putting your life between the covers of a book for readers to leaf through; but you are read nevertheless. The old saw, “Her life is an open book,” is an uncomfortable truth. Like it or not, you are on display.

The apostle Paul wrote a lot of books, but the manuscripts he valued most were the lives of his converts: “You are a letter from Christ.”

A life well lived is a powerful letter.

A craftsman is judged by what he builds, an artist by what she paints, a writer by what he writes.

And all of us by how we live.

Few read the Bible; many read the Christian.
