If God were to write you a love letter, what would it say?
If you ever read the bible, you would know that’s exactly what it is! Many read it as a storybook or a history lesson, having no idea of the power behind it. But those who immerse themselves in it, who press in deer and deeper, know its power. They know that it is a book filled with love letters that have been written especially for them. Know that God’s loves is unconditional. Love is not a definition of God; God is infinitely more. Without Him, love does not exist.
God did not begin loving at the cross, nor will He love us more tomorrow than He does today. There is nothing one can do, think, or say that will change His love because there are no surprises for God. He knows us totally and loves us any way.
God openly express his love in the Bible. His words are a love letter that one reads repeatedly, because one desires to be close to the one who wrote it. Yearning to connect with and remember everything about that person. Wanting to understand how He thinks, yearning to hear his voice again in our minds. We crave his touch. When you hunger for those same things from God, you learned to appreciate His love letter-the Bible. Now if you don’t love the person who sent the letter, it is meaningless. It holds no life for us.
“I love you! (John 3:16) I created you in my image (Genesis 1:27) and I called you “very good” (Genesis 1:31). I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). I know the number of the hairs on your head (Matthew 10:30) and I am familiar with all your ways (Psalm 139:3). My precious thoughts of you are as countless as the sand on the seashore (Psalm 139:17-18).”
The key to receiving the full message in God’s love Letter is to Love God. Because you love Him, you hear his voice speaking to you when you read His Word. If it is read often, the words find residence in your heart and bring you life.
