He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
My sweet son. I love you tremendously and cherish you endlessly.
This truth I wish for you to truly know in your heart and in your mind, that you are wonderfully loved by us and by God, that you have been saved and called to a holy life, not because anything you or we have done, but rather because of the purpose and grace of God the Father.
This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time and has been revealed through our Savior. May we always have our eyes set on Him as a family and as individuals. What a marvelous thing, that God has always remembered us, even before we existed, that the grace of our salvation has always been revealed in Christ and we are gifted the opportunity to witness it in the working of our own lives.
I would be remiss if I did not tell you plainly about the sweet gospel, my son. This is the greatest knowledge you can ever gain from me, the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
You are my sincerest ministry, baby boy. I devote myself to your fullness in life and not just a passive life that happens whether you’re present or not, but a life abundant, a life that boasts of the everlasting, a life being made fully alive. This sort of life I cannot give you, but I can lead you to the one who can deliver you in this.
He has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, He is truth and life and He is the way. I wish nothing more than for you to find hope and security and salvation with our mighty savior, Christ Jesus.
May these letters to you bring joy and hope and clarity on things most cherished from my inner dwellings.
I love you baby boy, this I know.
