Do we begin again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as some others, epistles of commendation to you or letters of commendation from you? You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; (2 Corinthians 3:1-2)
Holy Spirit, please help us to be living letters showing forth your love and power.
clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart. (2 Corinthians 3:3)
Holy Spirit, write your word on the tablets of our hearts.
And we have such trust through Christ toward God. (2 Corinthians 3:4)
Jesus, let our trust of you lead us to your Father day by day.
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, (2 Corinthians 3:5)
Father, thank you that the ministry you give us through your Spirit does not depend on our own strength or goodness, but on yours.
who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. (2 Corinthians 3:6)
Holy Spirit, thank you for making all of us (lay people, bishops, priests, and deacons) sufficient to do the work you have set out for us to do. Help us daily minister in your love and power and not in legalism or our own strength. Thank you.

Sadly, I meet many people who somehow think they are self imprisoned for what ever reason. The sentence; self judgment. It is as if some people are hanging onto the vertical bars of a jail wall. Now, here’s the thing. Look to your left, look to your right, look behind you. No walls! So, let go of the bars and walk away… Now you are free indeed. Jesus came to set the captives free. “Therefore there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. ” Romans 8:1
