2 Corinthians 3:3

2 Corinthians 3:3

Having laid out the amazing victory we have in Christ, Whose sacrifice on the cross became a sweet smelling fragrance to the Father, Paul announces that in Christ, we too have passed from death to life and have been commissioned by God to be epistles of Christ declaring the truth of the gospel - not letters that are written with ink, but ones that have been inscribed, stamped and sealed by the Holy Spirit Himself.

2 Corinthians 3:4

2 Corinthians 3:4

The letters that are written by Paul, and the epistles that other New Testament apostles penned, should thrill our heart, for in them we gain exclusive information about our heavenly Father, and privileged access to Him, through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 3:18

2 Corinthians 3:18

Simply reading these inspired words of Holy Writ, which are part of God's eternal love-letter to human-kind, causes us to kneel in humble reverence before the throne of grace as we worship our Father in heaven and the Lord Jesus Christ, Who shed His blood, so that condemned sinners might be made perfect before His face: and so we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory.
