We are letters from Christ.

"You show that you are a letter from Christ
-written not with ink but with the Spirit of the Living God." -2 Corinthians 3:3

"So much of the world does not read the Bible, nor come to church to hear the gospel. All it learns about Christ and the Christian life it must learn from those who bear Christ's name and represent Him. If all church members lived truly consecrated lives -
separate from the world;

loyal to Christ
in business,
in pleasure,
in all things -

it is impossible to estimate what the powerful influence of the Church would be, in example alone. We are all responsible for the influence of our example.

Our lives should be New Testament pages, which all can read."

-J.R. Miller
