Have you ever stopped to consider the significance of a LETTER…?
…few people ever have and it has cost them everything.
People have given their lives over a letter. Blood and tears have both been shed proving a letter’s worth. The power of a nation waging war against another has been brought to a complete halt by a simple letter. Letters have decreed both the life and death of countless individuals.
Why is the letter so important? Where did its significance arise from and why would one ever dare to give their life for its deliverance and authenticity?
I believe the answer to this mysterious question is profound and should NOT be taken lightly. The significance of the letter is not so much the letter itself, nor the words which are contained in it…… but the value of the letter lies with the author of the letter.
The greatest letter written of all times is the Letter which so many of us possess but so few read or have read. Countless thousands have given their lives for this Letter and many tortured being persecuted on behalf of the name of the One who wrote it. As one studies the Letter closely, they will quickly come to find it was not merely written to a mass of people located on some planet, but instead each Word was penned specifically for every individual who reads it.
The Letter is the Word of God and His Son is the One who has given His life to deliver it. All those who receive it can obtain eternal Life IN Christ Jesus. Each page unfolds more and more of the character of the One who wrote it and reveals the mystery of its message to mankind. Its Words possess the key to inheriting an eternal treasure which no man can take away…peace with God through a personal relationship in Jesus Christ.
So the next time you receive a letter, stop and think of the significance of THE LETTER…God’s Letter to you; His written Word!
A Letter to Dad
You are not my father, yet you are the very best father that I have ever known. You have been the protector –providing a roof over your children’s heads and clothes for physical protection. You have the ability to say “no” to protect them from emotional harm or unwise choices.
You have been a provider for them… all their needs physically are met by your diligent, hard-working example. You provide a safe environment for your children to talk to you with a listening heart.
You are the spiritual leader who not only leads our family in a time before the Lord but leads by example. Many mornings I have heard you on your knees in prayer before the Lord, memorizing His Word and often humming a tune from a hymn. You pray a blessing on your children. You humbly admit when you are wrong. You are a father that exemplifies Christ to them.
Love Always Tammy
You have showed us what a life redeemed by the blood of the Lamb looks like. Thank you for being a channel of God’s Truth and mercy to your far-from-perfect children.
I Love You!
Dearest Dad, Happy Father’s Day!
You mean so much to me and our family and so many others. You have challenged me to be the person that I was meant to be. You are my spiritual hero and role model…I admire you greatly because I have seen you sacrifice many things in order to fulfill God’s bidding. Your integrity and stand for principles and Godly living have inspired me and given me courage to stand for truth. Thank you Dad for your demonstration of true love…Happy Father’s Day, Dad!…I Love You!

Dear Dad Paine,
Thank you for not just being the wonderful, loving, kind, generous and sweetest father-‘n-law, but thank you for raising the most amazing son in the whole world. We admire you more than words could ever express and there is nothing we enjoy more than spending time with you; you are inspiring! May God pour His richest blessings on you! We love you to the moon and back a billion times!
Love, Your Favorite daughter-‘n-law (for now)

One thing that has always stood out to me about Dad is his sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. He always taught us that obedience is better than sacrifice; he lived this out even when it didn’t make sense. Thanks Dad for letting your actions speak louder than your words.

Only God knows the eternal impact that you have personally made on my life. You are a man that seeks after God and it is evident not only in your words but also undeniably through your actions. Your commitment to serve our family and others is a proof to the life of Christ living in and through you. Your dedication to the Word and prayer testifies that your treasure truly is in Heaven.
Thank you for allowing Jesus Christ to flow out of you and impact the lives of thousands around the world. May God richly bless you this year with HIS wisdom and understanding as you seek Him first in all you do!
Love Your Son,
I want to thank God for allowing me to have a Dad like you! Your devotion and love for the Lord is a constant inspiration to me! I pray the Lord will bless you, enlarging your effectiveness for Him. Also, that His hand would be with you always and that He would keep you from evil (1 Chron. 4:9-10). I love you Dad, Happy Father’s Day!
I love to sit back and watch you interact with others. No matter who they are, a complete stranger, family or friend, you are genuinely interested in their spiritual wellbeing. You truly have followed Christ command in letting the Light of Christ shine through you.
I Love You,
I am so blessed to have a father that is so sensitive to the Holy Spirit. I have seen you obey the Lord even when it didn’t make sense and when it seemed like a big mistake to others. Though, the outcome of obeying the Lord’s promptings in your life has brought about incredible blessings that only could have come from following Christ. Your childlike trust in the Lord has been an example to me personally and many others. I am so grateful to have you as my Father.
I Love You,
You have been a good example of Christ to me and others as well as a spiritual leader in the home. I am thankful for you!
Love Your Son,
Thank you for showing me my weaknesses and being an example to me.
Happy Father’s Day, Love Daniel
