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. I was cruising through the various items in the glass case when I saw a wrist watch. The back of that wrist 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 the person who wore this watch?
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 by? What is there that tells others that come after me what my life was about? I guess, for the rich and famous, that is 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 or in books but by the Holy Spirit on human hearts. These are not just written by your experiences but are authored by the Holy Spirit. 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, 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 on your journey with Christ. This is your real book. Your story will impact you and others with Christ.
Stay healthy and have a blessed week!
