2 Corinthians 3:3 “Clearly, you are a letter from Christ…. This ‘letter’ is written not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on tablets of stone, but on human hearts.”
I was recently in an antique shop. While cruising through the various items in the glass case, I saw a wrist watch. The back of that watch was monogrammed with a person’s name. Obviously I wasn’t terribly surprised, but it did make me stop and ponder, who was this person? It kind of left me with a sense of emptiness. You wonder: Is this all that is left of who the person was who wore is watch for possibly many years during their lifetime?
For many of us, we are left with a sense of emptiness when we look back over our lifetime and wonder: What is there to remember me? What is there that tells others that come after us what our life was about and what our experience was? I guess for the rich and famous, that’s why they often write autobiographies, so they can create some written evidence of what their life was.
For us as believers, the scripture tells us that we all have biographies. They are biographies written not with pens and ink on tablets of stone or in books, but by the Holy Spirit on human hearts. These are not just written on your own heart about but are written by the Holy Spirit on hearts of others.
We as Believers have the ultimate Facebook that provides a story of who we are, shared on the hearts of others.
Today, do not despair by wondering if there is some evidence of your walk with Christ. There is.
The Holy Spirit writes on the hearts of all those who you touch and cross on your journey and walk with Christ.
I am certain that when we get to heaven at the end of this life, we will read that book on the hearts of others written by the Spirit of God.
Have a blessed day.
