"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).
This is what you are, dear Christian-an open letter of Christ for all to read. The writer is God; the ink is the Spirit of God; the subject is Christ. It is a delight for the blessed God that Christ would be revealed in us for all to see.
We should ever remember that Christianity is not a set of opinions, a system of dogmas, or a number of views; it is pre-eminently a living reality-a personal, practical, powerful thing, telling itself out in all the scenes and circumstances of daily life, shedding its hallowed influence over the entire character and course, and imparting its heavenly tone to every relationship which one may be called of God to fill.
I trust that you will enjoy the great articles in this issue during the summer months. It is our prayer that the Lord would use them for building you up on your most holy faith and help you to be established. Thank you for your e-mails and notes of encouragement. We love to hear from all of you.
Please keep praying for the Lordï¿½s blessing on Toward the Mark.
Yours in our soon-coming Lord,
Emil S. Nashed
