Bible: 2 Cor 2:16-3:6
A Living Letter
3:1 Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? We don’t need letters of recommendation to you or from you as some other people do, do we? 6 3:2 You yourselves are our letter, 7 written on our hearts, known and read by everyone, 3:3 revealing 8 that you are a letter of Christ, delivered by us, 9 written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on stone tablets 10 but on tablets of human hearts.
3:4 Now we have such confidence in God through Christ. 3:5 Not that we are adequate 11 in ourselves to consider anything as if it were coming from ourselves, but our adequacy 12 is from God, 3:6 who made us adequate 13 to be servants of a new covenant 14 not based on the letter but on the Spirit, for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
