The Letter Written On Our Hearts

"Ye are our epistle. Paul's converts at Corinth were living testimonials to the genuineness of his ministry. Our hearts. Paul employs the plural in agreement with the use o the editorial "we" throughout this passage. Known and read to all men. to any who would "take up and read" Paul's ministry was authenticated (cf. 1 Cor. 15:9-10). This epistle is distinguished in two ways. First, it is not written with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It was supernaturally composed. Second, it was written not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tablets of the heart. The contrast is with the law of Moses. The force of the comparison is that Moses' law is external. the law of Spirit is internal."
