2 Corinthians 3:1-8 CJB

1 Are we starting to recommend ourselves again? Or do we, like some, need letters of recommendation either to you or from you?
2 You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone.
3 You make it clear that you are a letter from the Messiah placed in our care, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on stone tablets but on human hearts.
4 Such is the confidence we have through the Messiah toward God.
5 It is not that we are competent in ourselves to count anything as having come from us; on the contrary, our competence is from God.
6 He has even made us competent to be workers serving a New Covenant, the essence of which is not a written text but the Spirit. For the written text brings death, but the Spirit gives life.
7 Now if that which worked death, by means of a written text engraved on stone tablets, came with glory - such glory that the people of Isra'el could not stand to look at Moshe's face because of its brightness, even though that brightness was already fading away -
8 won't the working of the Spirit be accompanied by even greater glory?
