Most of the Bibles I grew up with had the words of Jesus in red. You always knew that when you came to red letters in the Bible those were the very words of Jesus. Paul writes in II Corinthians 3:2-3 that the Corinthian people were like a letter from Paul—known and read by everybody. Then he says we are a letter from Christ Jesus because when people encounter us they should encounter Jesus if the Holy Spirit has transformed us our hearts and lives. May God make us all red letter Christians!
One thought on “Red Letters”
We watched God’s Not Dead in our ladies Bible study group recently…I like the part where the reporter is asking Willie Robertson, the Duck Dynasty guy about if he really believed all the stuff he says on his show. Willie quotes a Scripture and says that Jesus said these words, they are written in red and that means they are important! I am paraphrasing, but I think you can get the gist.
