Letter to Church on Learning To Walk In Christ

Salutations dear brothers and sisters in Christ
Letter from Aphiah, a servant and child of God, and husband of Angel
Reflections on encouragement for our Church in Love by learning to walk according to the Way of Christ, our Lord and Saviour
May the Spirit of God increase you continuously in faith, hope, wisdom, understanding, mercy, unity, and especially Love

“And this is Love, that we walk according to His commandments”

So fellow children of God know this so we may not be deceived by our own wicked hearts, Love is not whatever we say it is by the deception of heart and desire of our flesh. Rather it is abiding in walking in the Way of Christ, who is Love, manifest in the Flesh, and born of the Spirit.

In sin we fall in fear and submit to the ways of the world. The world is against God, and as such is against you. But we are to love one another. So when the world looks upon the Church of God may they see us giving to one another joyfully and putting our brothers and sisters before ourselves so that our life remain as salt, and not lose flavour and preserve this Earth for His Kingdom…

No fall from grace can stop you, dear brethren. For you will overcome this world, just as He inside you has already overcome it. “For there is no fear in love, for perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because God first loved us.” Even when we were His enemies. And in this way we will love all of our enemies over to love. And even greater our love for brothers and sisters who we lay down our life for. For our life is no longer ours, but Christ’s.

And so we dedicate our lives to one another, as our time alive is for serving Christ, who remains faithful in serving us even when we fall short of remaining faithful to Him, so that by believing in Him, He will perfect us in abiding in Him.

Loving thy enemy dear sheep to slaughter…closer still…loving thy countrymen and neighbours…closer still…loving thy community…closer still…loving thy Church…closer still…loving thy spouse and family…closer still…loving Christ, who is God manifest in the flesh…And each step closer to you, oh Lord…the more we die to ourselves and take up new life in you, who is the Truth, the Way, the Life…

“By this we know Love, that He laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and in truth.”

Hearts zealously enflamed to empower Spirit of God which resides in Us, to abide in Him. Furthermore, leg can not do what arm does and arm not what leg does or our body will trip, tumble, n fall. But each of us, abiding to our One Spirit so that our One body works interdependently with one another submitting to each other peacefully as in unison. Forbid it please, that a foot should dictate how our mouth must operate. For is how a mouth functions in a foot’s instructional code? Therefore let each part communicate with Spirit, so that Spirit communicates with each part, and each part then to each other, threefold in unity, in how God has created each in accordance to each’s part. There are no small parts or one above another, for all are neccessary and unique to which one corresponds to our whole body in Oneness.

So in conclusion dear family of God, let us never put ourselves before one another, but be eager in cheer to serve one another, as Christ got down on his knees and He the King of all kings washed their feet. Let us remember to life, remember that cursed tree on which He hung each nail our sins of death poignantly pierced through His body. We are that One body where He wore all our curse, yet we are clean as He was clean? Because of His Glory! In Him persevere little children, my brothers and sisters. And not only endure, but surrender completely, so that all sin and doubt and fear are washed away by His blood so that forevermore we shall love one another in representation for our love for Him who casts out our fear and perfects our love

Being at peace with one another, not grumbling to one another, submitting to one another, teaching one another, exhorting one another, confessing to one another, forgiving one another, seeking good for one another, not repaying evil to one another, being patient and kind with one another, being merciful to one another, encouraging and building up one another, praying for one another, loving one another

With all our heart, with all our mind, with all our soul, with all our might, with all our Spirit, which is His, glory of God, forever and ever…Amen
