Love Letter From Jesus
My dearly loved child,
I love you with a devoted, infinitely generous, sacrificially committed love
I want you to know that my love for you is patient; a long enduring, bearing with love
I want you to know that my love for you is kind; a gentle benign kindness; a tender-hearted kindness love
I want you to know that my love for you is not envious because I know there is NO ONE that will love you better than ME!
I want you to know that my love for you never brags but always honors; never boasts but always blesses;
I want you to know that my love for you is not a self-serving, arrogant, glory taking love; rather my love for you is a self sacrificially, humbly serving, glory displaying love.
I want you to know that my love for you is never rude; that I will never do anything that would not display my holiness and my purpose and pleasure in and thru you.
I want you to know that my love for you is not easily angered, or stirred up but rather easily calm, clear-headed, long-fused and easily brimming with sweet affections for you, sweet singing loudly my forgiving love over you like Zephaniah 3:17 says.
I want you to know that my love for you NEVER keeps a record of your wrongs. You do. I don’t, EVER!
I want you to know that my love for you NEVER takes pleasure in wrong, but in right; not in lies but in truth. My truth seeking love is a lie defeating love for you because I know that truth ever growing in you is what will bring you the most joy in ME!
I want you to know that my love for you is an eternally bearing with, holding on to you in and through ALL things love
I want you to know that my love for you is an always believing in MY best for you in ALL things love
I want you to know that my love for you is an always hoping in MY best for you in ALL things love; a certain-expectation of MY ways best for you love
I want you to know that my love for you is an always enduring love for you; when all around everything falls apart, you lose your spouse, job, friends, family- I am your constant; when you feel like you have no friends, I am your friend; when you feel like you have no spouse, I am your spouse; when you feel like you have no father, I am your father; when you feel like everyone has forsaken you, I WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU!
I want you to know and never forget, that my love for you is rooted NOT in what you do for me, but what I have done FOR YOU.
When you sinned, I saved. When you cursed, I blessed. When you despised, I delivered. When you hated, I helped. When you hurt, I healed. When you were faithless, I was faithful. When you were messed up, I was merciful. When you were dead, I made you alive…in ME, Jesus!
I want you to know that everything you need in Me, Jesus, you already have.
Everything for life, forgiveness, peace, joy, and godliness you already have in Me, Jesus. My love for you actually applies to EVERY PART OF YOUR life:
Because you are loved in Me, love. Because you are forgiven in Me, forgive. Because you are free in Me, be free from others opinions and acceptance of you, for I already accept you!
Because you are pure in Me, be pure. Because you are holy in Me, be holy. Because you are in Me, and I in you, walk in Me and My ways.
I want you to never grow weary of your daily need of this Gospel-Me! I Am your Gospel!
I know you want to grow up spiritually. I know you want to mature. I know you have many dreams for your life, marriage, family, career. I know your heart’s desire. I love you.
Above ALL those things know that what is at the center MUST be your faith in ALL I HAVE DONE FOR YOU & ALL I AM FOR YOU!
When you look at your future and your growth spiritually through this core Gospel you will find joy in the journey, freedom in the fight, peace in the path of righteousness, worship in the waiting moments and power to persevere, especially in forgiveness.
I want you to know that when you feel like you never measure up on the performance treadmill of Christianity, MY performance already has; when you feel like your guilt is too deep, my grace is deeper still; when you feel like your mess is to wide, my love is wider still; when you feel like your ungodliness is too high, my godliness is higher still; when you feel like your slate is too dirty and account too empty, my blood has not only washed you perfectly clean, but my perfect life has is NOW yours!
I do not love a future version of you.
I love you right NOW!
Feel it. Believe it. Rest in it.
IT IS FINISHED!
I forgive you.
I love you.
