Love Letters

Do you remember when you were in school and you got one of these from someone you liked? Every day you would wait in anticipation to receive that love letter from that special someone. I remember getting them in middle school and high school. And I know this may sound a little sentimental, but I used to keep them all and put them in a binder. Hey, you know you probably did the same thing too. Today we get these kinds of letters through Facebook, an email or a text message. As I would read each letter, I got to know the person who wrote it and it was almost as if that person was right there, speaking to me. Did you know that God speaks to us through the Bible today? They are His collection of love letters written for us. The Holy Scriptures are 66 books written over a period of 1500 years. They are inspired by the Holy Spirit and through it God, Himself speaks directly to us. How do I know this? Because every morning I spend quality time with God listening to Him speak to me as I read the Bible. In these sacred love letters I get to know what God is like. I see in them His character of love and I discover the story of His wonderful plan of salvation. But the best thing of all about the Bible, God’s Love Letters, is I have come to know Jesus Christ personally. And friend, my prayer is that you will read the Bible and get to know Him too.
