Get to Know the Author of Love

I was told this story of a man who had written a book. He later met a woman and asked her out on a date, just as a friend. At the end of the evening, he gave her the book to read. Two weeks later, he asked how she liked it. She said, "Frankly, I didn't like it at all."

They went out on another date. She read the book again, and this time she said, "It's okay, but this kind of book is a dime a dozen. It was nice, but there was nothing special about it."

The relationship grew and he asked her to marry him. She read the book again and fell in love with it. On their honeymoon, the woman read the book a fourth time. Now, because her husband was the author, she loved it more than ever. What made that book special to the woman was its author. As she got to know the author and grew in her love for him, she was able to appreciate the expression of his heart.

It is the same with the Bible. The thing that makes this Book priceless is the Author. When we know the Author, we will love the Book. Every word will be fresh, every category will have its rightful place as a wall of doctrine is established in our souls. Thank God for that.
