The Bible isn't just a bunch of stories. It is the expression of God's eternal love for people. From Genesis to Revelation, God reveals to us in his Word the message of salvation–a message of undeserved love for us. Chapter by chapter God gives us the account of that love in Jesus Christ.
Jesus fulfilled the law of love to all people for his heavenly Father. He took on the form of a servant so that, in perfect, obedient love, he could be everything we couldn't on our own. He bore the punishment for our sins on the cross. He rose from death victorious. He lives and rules...and loves...eternally! This story of love is the account of our of salvation...your salvation. The Bible is not just a bunch of stories, it is the account of God's eternal love!
"I have loved you with an everlasting love." (Jeremiah 31:3)
"God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
