"A Letter From Christ"
"You show that you are a letter from Christ."
What do people see in that letter from Christ? Hopefully it will be the fruit of His spirit, supremely His love.
Listen to our message on your audio player.
If not in you, I wonder where
Will they ever see the One who really cares?
If not from you, how will they find;
There's One who heals the broken heart
And gives sight to the blind.
other day we were shopping at a BB's grocery store near Quarryville,
PA. BB's is a locally-owned discount store ran by the Amish with an
interesting, grammatically puzzling motto, "Bents, Bumps and Bunch of
Bargains". It generally sells items that are slightly damaged,
overstock and in some cases near or even passed their "Best By" date.
But if you search hard you might also find interesting items like the
time we found Apple lightning charging cords for $1.50.
And if not you, I wonder who
Will show them love;
And love alone can make things new.
If not from you, how will they learn;
There's One who'll trade their hopelessness
And give joy in return.
Paul had established the church in Corinth and spent 18 months as Pastor, "teaching them the Word of God" (Acts 18:11),
before moving on and leaving the church under the care of others. We
have more material written by Paul to the Corinthian believers than to
any other single church.
You show that you are a letter from Christ."
You're the only Jesus, some will ever see
And you're the only words of life some will ever read,
So let them see in you
The One in whom is all they'll ever need,
'Cause you're the only Jesus some will ever see.
Daily prayer: Father,
as we walk according to Your commands we become more and more like Jesus, as though we are a letter sent from Him written not with ink but by the guidance of Your Spirit with in us. We want to help those who walk in darkness to see the light of salvation through Christ Jesus; the One in whom is abundant life and life everlasting, the
One who heals the broken heart
and gives sight to the blind. May our lives reflect the very image of Christ in all we say and do. It is in His name that we pray. Amen.

"The Apple Cart" A touching story of being mistaken for Jesus!
* Here's a message we wrote about a time it was the presumed appearance of Jesus playing the piano! We also recall another time we saw "Jesus" cleaning our hotel.
