Dear Friends,
 
Do you like true love stories? You can read the Greatest Love Story of all times in the Bible! That story continues in your life and mine. -- "For God so loved (your name) that He gave His one and only Son ..." (Jn. 3:16)
 
Our love relationship with God spills over into us loving people. No wonder Jesus identified the Greatest Commandments as loving the Lord with all of who we are and loving our neighbor as ourselves (Matt. 22:37-40).
 
Bible-based teachers therefore need to get beyond simply teaching the precepts of the Bible to helping people get to know the Person introduced therein as the Lover of our souls. It's on the basis of His love for us that we are then able to love others (1 Jn. 4:19) and develop healthy relationships with them in accordance with God's heart and design for His Church.
 
We can learn the art of great storytelling but if we want to make a real difference in people's lives, we've got to make sure we point them to the Author of the greatest story ever to be told.
 
This Valentine's Day take some time to reflect on His love and express that love to those around you.
 
Because He loves us,

Phyllis Kline
