On November 1, 1997, a new movie was released that became the second highest grossing movie of all time. It as a great, tragic romance called “The Titanic”, the story of the doomed cruise ship that set sail from England for new York. It tragically collided with an iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland on April 15, 1912, where it sank. 1500 people lost their lives. It’s an amazing story, in how this tragedy could be hi-lighted by a love affair between the young man, Jack, and the young woman, Rose. Jack is a young artist that was doing his own thing along with his friend, while staying in the lowest part of the boat. Then, there’s Rose, who is the girl that became Jack’s
lover, and the romance between them. We see them standing on the bow of the ship shouting, “I am king of the world!” They took something that was horrible and told story after story, capturing so much emotion and feeling. It was the ship that couldn’t be sunk, but it sunk!

 

As I thought about it, this is what rolled in my spirit. Of all the things that the Bible is to so many, the one thing that it is, is a love story between God, the Creator, and man, His creation. We tend to see the Bible for so many other things. We use it for our economic welfare, for our physical and healing welfare, and for understanding things about business and money. We use it as a spiritual warfare weapon. I looked at it and said, “What this Book is really about is, it’s a love story.”  It’s a love story with tragedy all around it. It’s a love story that, if told correctly, you would be melting in your heart because you’d realize what it took for a father to give his son up. What a love story! It plays over and over throughout the creation, and throughout the establishment of God’s purpose on the earth for man. You see it and say, “Oh, my God! What a love story!” God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son. But, we read it as though it’s a rough tool in our hands to use to beat back the demons, and command healing, and stomp out the negativity and doubts and fears…” And, I’m not saying it’s wrong for these reasons, but put the sword down for a minute and realize, it’s a love story. When you read the Song of Solomon, you can’t help but see it in that light. The average reader is not told that this Book is a love story. They’re told, “Read this Book and your life will change!” But…read this book and you’ll find how much your Creator cares for you. He loves you! Oh! How He loves you! Oh, how He loves you and me!

 

Relationship is the reason God wrote the Bible and why He created Heaven and Earth. It’s the reason God created man, and stuck with him, even after he sinned. Relationship was his purpose in bringing his own son to die on the cross, and sending the Holy Spirit. God, the Father, wanted relationship with you.
