#Living Letters

               First let me say that I am honored to have you here. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my blog. I look forward to digging into the Word of God with you and anticipate some wonderful conversations along the way. Let’s get started…

               I was pondering an interesting thought the other day about what it means to be an #author. I was fascinated by where my thoughts led me. I was reminded of #scripture that says in #Hebrews 12:2looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. So I looked up the definition of author and this is what I found; Author- A writer of a book, article, or document. We knew that already but check out this next definition. An originator of a plan or idea. Is that incredible or what!

               An originator is an inventor, creator, designer and maker; all of these are attributes and names of God. Should I be surprised? Surprised no, elated yes; why? Because for me as a writer it is amazing to see how even our language can and does point us to an #AuthorGod.

               Ok so what has this Author written? This is the breath taking part. Epistles (fancy word for letter) Check this out. Epistle- A poem or other literary work in the form of a letter or series of letters. It gets better. 2 Corinthians 3:2-3(KJV) 2 Ye are our epistle (letter) written in our hearts, known and read of all men: 3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle (letter) of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

               Wow! Powerful, right? Living letters for all to read. I wonder what words an Author like this uses to write these letters. Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God is living and powerful… He uses living and powerful words so that these #living letters (us, our lives) would be living examples of His living love.

               Go live something powerful today!
