Letters From Christ

Paul explains in 2 Corinthians 3 that the Old Covenant or Law could not save us. The law, which was engraved in letters on stone, came in all glory to Moses. Moses and the false teachers of Judea used Moses constantly in their argument; his face was shining when he saw the glory of God on Mount Horeb. But later on, he had to wear a veil to cover his face to prevent the people of Israel from seeing that this radiance was fading, because of his sinfulness. Moses was not the Messiah! This ministry of the Law led to man’s death through their disobedience and imperfection to keep the law. Paul, himself, is nothing, but he is everything in Christ who strengthens him. Does he, Paul, therefore, need a letter of recommendation to commend him? No, the church is his letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, for all to read and understand. This is how we should be as the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ. We should be letters of Christ!
