Love Letter Devotional


Date—provides a time. Do you provide time for the Lord? Do you provide time for your fellow Christian?

Psa 90:9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

We often spend our time doing things for ourselves.

Greeting—Dear, Dearest….shows care and love.
Don’t ever forget that God loves you.
Jer 31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

We are to love Him and love others!

1Jo 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

***Remember—it’s not about you.

The Body—the message; Are you telling others about Christ? He cared enough to save you. Are you spreading that same opportunity to others?

Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

The Closing—Provides the name of the person who wrote the letter (sometimes).
God has written us a large letter. The Bible.
Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
He was not ashamed of us. Sometimes people will not sign their names to letters. They might use a “pen name”….but why? Is it due to fear of what the letter says?

God was not afraid to send His son. Jesus was not afraid to die for you.

You should not be afraid in your life.
Isa 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

Post-Scriptum—an after thought or addition to the letter.
P.S. I love you (commonly used).
God has given us an addition to LOOK FORWARD to…
Joh 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Joh 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
Joh 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.


I used this devotional during a meeting where we wrote letters to missionaries and those who are going through a rough time in our church. I brought in some collected stationary I had and encourage the other ladies to do so as well and some to bring in stamps.
