Living Epistles - April 30th 2024

Tuesday, 30th April, 2024

By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome


“Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart” (2 Corinthians 3:2-3 KJV).          


1 Peter 1:23 says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” Every Christian is thus the epistle of Christ, because we’re born of the Word; we’re offsprings of the Word. James 1:18 says, “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.”

You’re the Word in flesh! This is what the Apostle Paul meant by us being “living epistles.” Today, anyone who wants to see the Word of God should look at you, for you’re the epistle of Christ! This is what the Church is. Hallelujah!

The Lord Jesus was the Word of God in human flesh: “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us...”(John 1:14 NKJV). Jesus was the epistle of God. He was the love-letter sent to the world by God. The same Word that became flesh gave birth to us.

We were born in the realm of the spirit to be like Jesus through the Word. Glory to God. Your life is the life of the Word. You're not born of the corruptible seed of man, but of God’s incorruptible seed. This is the reason the life in you is the God-life—the life of the Word. Hallelujah!


"I live the supernatural life and my potential is limitless because I’m born of the Word. The life in me is the God-life; therefore I’m divinely endued to live triumphantly according to God’s mighty power at work in me. Through me, many come to the knowledge of Christ today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen."
