You've Got Mail!

You’ve got mail!

You know the feeling: opening the mailbox and finding an envelope addressed to, of all people, you! You snatch it up quickly and tear it open, only to find it’s an organization asking for money or a bank statement. Your heart sinks and your excitement dissipates. But, then it could be a response from a famous celebrity, or a note from your grandma, and perhaps a letter from your fiancé. Your heart beats even faster as your eyes scan the page to drink in every word and pen mark.

Consider the last example of a letter: a letter from your fiancé. The man whom you adore. The guy who you are always dreaming of. The man who loves you more than anything else in the world. This guy who is always seeking to win your heart. And he just wrote you a letter! Faint! Sigh! :) Don’t we all dream of that day when we find a love letter, for us only, from the "one and only"? I do! (Don’t mind the pun.)

Think with me for a minute. Don’t you already have a love letter, written just to you? The life story of your Prince, the who is so in love with you that He sacrificed His life so you could live with Him, forever? Now you are like, "Oh, I know what you mean. That story. But it’s not the same." No, it isn’t. It’s much more amazing, because Jesus’ love will always be forever. You may never get married, may never have "Mr. Right", and your man will not last forever. Jesus Christ will always be there with you, always wooing you, beckoning you to read what He has to say in His Word, to spend time with Him in prayer and conversation.

Get your Bible out and open it up. Feel the breath of God on your face as He speaks to you. Read the story of your salvation again, and soak in the promises of heaven and the marriage supper of the Lamb. Love has written you; you’ve got mail!
