A Letter from Abba

Sometimes when I read the Bible, the words seem personal, meant specifically for me. I imagine I have received a letter. Here is one such letter I received some time ago from my Father in heaven:

Dear Dan,

I remember you with joy. And I know this for sure: I have begun a good work in you and will perfect it until the day of the coming Messiah. It is natural for me to feel this way about you because I have you in my heart … You are a partaker of grace with me. I long for you with affection, and this I desire: that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Messiah having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through him to the glory and praise of Me.

Love, Abba
