Dear Yashua,

I realize it has been much too long since I last spoke to you here.  I am distressed.  I take pride in going a day without sinning or with minimal unintentional sin.  It is hard for me to distinguish between being like you and being sinless.  I know being sinless will not grant my entry to Heaven.  Only faith, trust and reliance on You will do that.

That scripture about how on the day of judgement many will call to you, “Lord, Lord.”  And you will tell them you never knew them.  I desperately don’t want to be one of those people.  To try and straighten out and live my life the way You want, only to find out it wasn’t good enough, would destroy me.

Please Lord, help me to wake people up.  I have never gone on a missionary trip, nor testified to anyone but nearly everyday I try to show people what is going on in this world through Facebook and Twitter.  I feel most do not listen, nor do they care.  I know most of my posts are not of a religious nature per se but I’m trying to be a watchman.  I really am. Could you give me the know-how and strength to post things of religious significance?  I suppose Lord, that I fear offending friends and acquaintances.  Who will listen to me if they feel I have insulted them?  I do not want to be a Christian that beats people over the head with the Bible.  Please help.  I pray that I am worthy enough to escape those things coming with your return.

Love,

Good and Faithful Servant

Dear Yashua,

I am a dead sinner.  A repeat offender.  Lord I have fallen into sexual sin once again.  I do not know how to say, “No.”  I don’t want to hear you say you never knew me.  Though I’m told that through faith in you I’ll be saved but thats not a free ticket to just go out and sin as I please.  I know I am a man will sin until the day I die but I just don’t want to feel like I let you down.  Please help me.

Is my attitude towards Muslims wrong?  Because so many think Christianity is foolishness, does that mean I shouldn’t bother trying to show them the right way?  I’m so flawed myself Lord.  Most of the time I don’t feel worthy enough to speak to someone about you.

Was my attitude toward Rafat wrong?  I don’t think being a Christian means I must be a punching bag and let anyone do what they want.  You know it bothers me inside to see things the way they are in the house, Lord but I feel like he brought it on himself.  I’m not big enough to go to him and straighten things out.  Especially because I suspect things are bound to get worse when I head home and ask for the Comcast money.  I pray oh God that you show me wrong and have Rafat have the money prepared when I ask.

You know my many shortcomings Lord.  Please help me to get to know you better and let that show in my daily dealings.  In your name I pray, amen.

Love,

Good and Faithful Servant

Dear Yashua,

I have disappointed you much this weekend.  I’ve been struggling a lot recently with sexual sins.  Its tough for an unmarried 21 year old male to keep his mind and his body pure. Especially when surrounded by so many temptations.  I ask that you give me more strength to overcome those temptations.

I praise you for the opportunity you gave me today.  I feel really good inside for helping him out.  I ask you give me more opportunities in the future to show your love and even a chance to discuss you with whoever you put in front of me.

 

Love,

Good and Faithful Servant
