A Bibles & Bathrobes™ Devotional
Before buying something, many shoppers like to read the reviews.
Whether it be a product or a service, tapping into the experiences of others can be helpful before committing to the sale.
The same is true when we apply for a new job, try to get into school, or ask to be trusted with some type of responsibility.
To accomplish such things, letters of recommendation are often requested.
References from those who know us and can vouch for our integrity and skill.
In the same way, God wants us to be letters of recommendation he can use.
For others to see something in us that’s different from the rest of the world.
To see Jesus in us the way Jesus wants to be represented.
Not with labels that set us apart.
But with his kind of peace.
His kind of compassion.
His kind of mercy and grace.
His kind of unconditional love.
God wants to use the proof of his power in our lives to reach those who don’t yet know him.
Living in a way that allows us to be letters of recommendation he can use.
2 Corinthians 3:1-4 (NIV)
