My Dear Son . . .
I thank God for raising you up to labor with me for the great work of serving our Lord. Thank you for sharing your life with me, thank you for your teachable spirit, thank you for believing in the hope of Jesus Christ to which you have committed your devotion, your energy, your life.
, never compromise your sincere faith, which is God’s will for you. Our every-changing world so desperately needs to see that absolute faithfulness. So many are faithless – which, I know, grieves your heart because it grieves the heart of God.
Keep your love for Jesus Christ “white hot” in your heart. Don’t let people conform you to their image or creed or speculation. Unashamedly, conform yourself wholly to the image of our Lord and Savior. Fulfill His Word in you and His mission through you. You know His righteousness and His holiness. You know His purpose for your calling. You know His Gospel.
Test everything you do and preach through the your dependence on His Spirit as you return again and again to His righteous Word and righteous way. Seek a discerning and wise life in order to live for Him so you will hear (as I desire to hear for myself), Well done, good and faithful servant. Nothing compares to that reunion with Him in Heaven one day.
Just as the Lord has allowed me to give His love to you and find His love from you, look for others like yourself in whom you can pour your life, which is really His life in you. Continue the fight, the race, striving for the prize.
