Has anyone ever asked you to write them a letter of recommendation and you felt less than enthusiastic about it? Well, I haven’t been in the exact situation but I have been called for a reference. Most people wouldn’t mind recommending someone you’ve worked along side and seen that they exhibit exemplary character.
But, how often do we consider and critically examine what recommendation we’re passing onto others. In 2 Corinthians 3:2-3 Paul reminds the believers that he had no need for written letters of recommendations to prove the effectiveness of his ministry. They themselves were proof enough.
Many of the people that our paths crossed during the course of our day are not taking the time to read God’s written “letters” found in His Word. However, you and I can be assured that they’re reading our LIFE-our attitude, speech, and behavior. Are you giving Christ a good recommendation?
The only letter of recommendation we need is you yourselves. Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you. Clearly, you are a letter from Christ showing the result of our ministry among you. 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. 2 Corinthians 3:2-3(NLT)
