I write this letter in tears, not tears of sadness or mourning, no not that kind of tears lord.
I’m crying out in awe of you. Just here in my room trying to fathom how awesome someone can be to love this much, just to thinking of how you would be submissive not just to life but to death, to the cross, u know,..I stand amazed.
Since I was born, I heard stories of you and what you did for the world, of how you subjected to the will of the Father to bring salvation and eternal life (ZOE) to all men even when it meant that you would be crucified on the cross. I mean these are people who you never knew of before or had any prior relationships with. I was told of how you lived your life, the extent of sacrifice you made, the vices and temptations of life that you overcame, just so you could fulfill your mission which was to save my life, Oh dear Lord I stand amazed.
In 2001, I decided to identify myself with you by accepting you for what you did for me and every man who lived and who will ever live in this world. I accepted you as my Lord and personal Saviour and received your Holy Spirit who now lives in me to be with me since you no longer live on earth physically. You see, being born again exposed me to the depth of your love for me. It brought me to that place where I realized that even if I was the only human who was created, you still would have come and died for me, I still stand amazed.
To be honest, I wondered how I could live this life you wanted for me, a life pleasing to the father, because, you see, I saw you as my WAY, my TRUTH and my LIFE *oh rakabasojote* (speaking in tongues), You are to me my Icon. Then I realized that you didn’t just stop at laying down your life for me to give me eternal life, (as if that wasn’t enough) you continued by leaving with me the gift of the Holy Spirit to live in me, meaning that you didn’t leave me alone to go through this life, you had in me a helper, a standby, a comforter, a strengthener, a guide, an advocate, the anointing and boyyy have I been soo privileged and blessed to have you live inside of me, it has made my life easier and worth living.
This realization and consciousness has made me a champion in life. By the epignosis (revelation knowledge)of your word, I’ve been able to ginosko (know) you and understand what this package of salvation you gave me is all about. The eyes of my understanding has been flooded with light and indeed it has been a sweet experience, as you’ve steered me in the right path not leaving me helpless. It has been Upward and Forward since I met you.
Our relationship not only saved my life, but with all that you’ve invested in me, I’ve been able to save others and bring solution to other lives (you see, you not only gave me the fish, you taught me how to be a fisherman ). It has made me a saviour, because of you my life has now become the good news. Little wonder, we say we are the reason for the season. Oh, how you love me, and what a testimony you have made me because you are more than a testimony.
You are the best friend any one could ever have, and you’ve taught me what friendship is all about. You keep being a true definition of Love to me. Oh how I love you! Though sometimes I have made mistakes and gone against your plan and will for me, you never pushed me away, instead, the warmth of your embrace gave me peace, you never shut me out. I still stand amazed.
Oh, Jesus, you are my shepherd, You are my guide. You are the Lord of my Life, You are my King.
You are my Increase, You are my song. You’ve been the potter as I’ve been your clay
You are the strength of my Life, You are my peace. You are my helper, You are my God
Oh, Jesus you are more than enough for me.
So today marking your birthday, I celebrate you and not only your death, but your resurrection from the dead (yaaaaaayyyyy you’re not some dead God, you are alive and alive in me for that matter). I wanna say thank you for being such a wonderful friend indeed. I worship you today, with the fruit of my lips, from the depth of my heart, with the lifting up of my hands, I say you are Great and Greatly to be praised.
Precious Jesus, I thank you for your blood, I thank you for your body that was broken for me and I remember all you’ve done for me, no I don’t forget. Thank you for the perfect sacrifice that you wrought in victory, all for my sake.
Thank you soo much dear friend, Lord and Saviour.
I love you.
I know all my readers have this same testimony as I have about our mutual friend and saviour. So as you are reading this right now, I want you to live this Christmas season with the consciousness that “YOU ARE THE REASON FOR THE SEASON”. Thank you for being the Jesus that the world now sees.
I love you all and have your self a very merry Christmas filled with plenty of joy to share around to your world.
Stay Illuminating, muah.
