More Than Just Letters – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 4th

(The Epistles: The Revelation Of The Body Of Christ)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 3:2
“You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men”

Several years ago, I was discussing the Scriptures with a Christian leader and I quoted a portion of the Scriptures he wasn’t familiar with. He was quite startled, and he asked me, “Where did you get that revelation from?” When I showed it to him from the Epistles, he was amazed. He had never known it, having never majored on the Epistles.

A good number of God’s people today have never majored on the Epistles. In fact, some of them see the Epistles only as letters to the churches, but they’re more than just letters.

In the same way, some people see the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as mere historical books of the New Testament. No! They’re the revelation of the man, Christ Jesus.

When you study the gospels, you’ll come to the conclusion that Jesus is alive. His words are as alive today as they were back then when He spoke them. That’s not history. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are the revelation of the Head of the Church.

The Epistles, on the other hand, are the revelation of the Body of Christ. Hallelujah! This refers to us: the new creation, the Christians, the ones that are born again.

When you study the Epistles, you discover you. For instance, there’s not a single place in the Epistles where the Christian is asked to have faith.

Rather, they let you know that you already have faith: “…think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you” (Romans 12:3 NIV).

This is a true picture of who you are; you’re a young man or woman of faith! The Epistles are the album of the new creation. Hallelujah!

I’m the epistle of Christ, the effulgence of His glory, the manifestation of His goodness and righteousness. My life is a message read by all men, through which many are coming to the glory, beauty, perfection, liberty, joy and knowledge of Christ. Hallelujah!
