The Bible is not just a bunch of stories. It is the expression of God's love for people. Through it God reveals to us the message of salvation; a message of undeserved love. This is the story of God becoming man and giving up his life for people who are only focused on themselves. This is the story of Jesus buying you back from the grip of sin. This is the story of him buying you back and making you something you are not. This is the story of our of salvation... your salvation. The Bible is not just a bunch of stories, it is the message of redemption.
"In Jesus we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace." Ephesians 1:7
