thedayRejoice Always! I find it remarkable that some families begin preparing their Thanksgiving meals in October. With that in mind, shouldn’t we also prepare our hearts early by rejoicing?

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.” 1

A French Connection…

Recently, I was blessed to hear from Rev. Bruno, who is fighting the good fight of faith in France.

jesussavesHappy Labor Day! There is one thing I know from receiving hundreds of letters; people are hurt, frustrated and insecure in need of Jesus, Who said:

“The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” 1

A Welcome Response…

Dave from Florida wrote: “It’s been several years since I’ve written and honestly I don’t know why.”

Happy Independence Day! I did many things in my youth that I am now ashamed of, including the pain that I caused so many. The apostle Paul wrote,

“But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.” 1

A Springtime Response…

Being overjoyed with Amy’s response, I just had to share it abroad.

john316 2Happy Father’s Day! I wasn’t a fatherless victim, rather my disobedience through foolish choices and decisions separated me from God and my parents, resulting in loneliness, confusion and insecurity. But for believers led by the Spirit, the apostle Paul wrote:

“So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, ‘Abba, Father.’” 1

Scott wrote from Scotland, saying: “I imagine you get quite a lot of mail.”

mountain lakeSpringtime Harvest! Thank you for sharing with me how you’ve been blessed by the site. Otherwise, I wouldn’t know, nor be able to respond with joy.

“I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return.” 1

valentinesHappy Valentine’s Day! I believe that Valentine’s Day can be more than celebrating the legacy of the late Saint, rather a realization that God’s love empowers us to love others as He loved us.

“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins… We love each other because he loved us first.” 1

A Miraculous Testimony…

Chase said, “God came to me, and I felt His presence all through me.”

christmas2018Merry Christmas! Jesus was born to die for Adam’s sin, that had spread to all mankind. He took upon Himself sin’s judgment, giving us eternal life through His death, burial, and resurrection.

“…God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.” 1

Christmas Praise Reports…

Your response makes my day, knowing that these efforts aren’t falling on deaf ears.

Mothers day 2019Happy Mother’s Day! I’m trusting by now that parts of our world have opened back up after the virus; “a tiny disease-causing agent”, although devastating to many. In light of the Gospel, Jesus said:

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 1

A Rocky Response…

Aaron wrote: “I received your letter. Thank you for taking the time to reply. I also looked at the information you sent. It truly meant a lot.

cross easterHappy Resurrection Day! What a blessing to receive such wonderful responses to the testimony of Jesus Christ in my life; surprisingly from a whole new generation as a result of the 50th-anniversary remembrance.

“Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.” 1

Another Amazing Response…

mountain lakeWelcome! I quote John 3:16 often, where Jesus tells us how much God loves the world, but how about verse 17, where He tells us that he didn’t come to judge us. If anyone deserves His judgment, it is me, but listen to His words.

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” 1

Praise Reports…

So let us praise the Lord that he gave us this wonderful salvation, taking our judgment upon Himself. Trish writes,

valentinesHappy Valentine’s Day! Wouldn’t it be great if everyone was blessed and filled with happiness this Valentine’s Day? In God’s eyes we’re all blessed, because He views us through the blood of His Son, but in reality, so many are blinded, lost and defeated by the world.

“Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” 1

A Heart-Breaking Response…

Newyear2018Happy New Year! It takes 20/20 vision to be happy! The wisest man ever, other than Jesus Christ, King Solomon wrote: “Where there is no vision [redemptive revelation of God], the people perish: but he that keepeth the law [walks in love], happy is he.” 1

“In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.” 2

A Judge Responds…

“Having read your testimony, I wanted to write to you. It feels a bit strange to address, in person, someone who is a living (though notorious) historical figure. At age 61, I’m old enough to remember your crimes, which horrified me than and still do today. Even given the many factors which caused you to act the way that you did, your actions are still very difficult to understand.

Happy Birthday Jesus! We celebrate the Lord’s birthday on the 25th of this month. Why not give Him the best gift ever – your life? You are that treasure and pearl of great price He finds, Who sells all that He has and purchases you with His precious blood. 1
