Thank you for sending your Son to give me eternal life (John 3:16), so that I might be saved through Him (John 3:17). You have demonstrated your love for me in this: “while I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me. Thank you for justifying me through His blood, and saving me from the wrath to come. Now that I have been reconciled through His death, how much more shall I be saved through His life! (Romans 5:8-10).
Jesus, you suffered once for all of my sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring me to God. You were put to death in the body, but made alive in the Spirit (1 Peter 3:18). You were despised, and rejected by mankind, You took my pain and bore my suffering, You were pierced for my transgressions, crushed for my iniquities, and You bore the punishment that brought me peace, so that by Your wounds I am healed (Isaiah 53:5).
There is no greater love than the love you have shown me. I don’t deserve it, I can’t earn it, but I gladly receive it. You are so kind, and so beautiful to me. I rejoice in God my Father, Jesus my Savior, and the Holy Spirit. For you have convicted me of my sin, convinced me of my need for Jesus, and I now I have the Holy Spirit with me.
I am eternally grateful for your love and mercy.
Your forever friend,
