Commendation

    2 Corinthians 3:1-4 says, “Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?
    [2] Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
    [3] 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.
    [4] And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:”

    Paul didn’t need any commendation for the work that he did for Christ. His commendation was the fact that those he taught were faithfully following Christ. Just as our faithful lives bring glory to God, our faithfulness also commends those who taught us and helped us along the way. Also, we should not need verbal or written commendation for the work that we do in Christ. Seeing those we have helped live faithfully should be commendation enough.
