A man who loves his wife will love her letters and her photographs because they speak to him of her.
So if we love the Lord Jesus we shall love the Bible because it speaks to us of him.
The husband is not so stupid as to prefer his wife’s letters to her voice, her photographs to herself.
He simply loves them because of her.
So, too, we love the Bible because of Christ.
It is his portrait.
It is his love-letter.
John Stott (1921-2011), 1956.
