Like many young girls, when I was growing up I’d dream of being a beautiful princess waiting for my handsome prince to rescue me. He’d slay all the dragons without fear. He’d love me enough to be willing to die for me. He’d save me from those who wished me harm.
And then real life began creeping in. The princes were really frogs. The dragons were too strong. I wasn’t safe from harm.
I lost hope in romance. I lost hope in love.
Until I found the greatest love story ever written. This is an incredible story of love, intrigue, betrayal, and the ultimate sacrifice.
This is a story with a Prince who is more powerful than any dragon yet more humble than any servant. He is strong and fierce yet kind and merciful.
He loves tenderly. Even His rebukes are loving and gentle. His touch is healing. His words are comforting.
He says we are His bride and that we will be together forever.
But, just like any good love story, there is an evil enemy pursuing our Prince at every turn.
He could run away, but He loves us too much to leave us.
If He runs, we perish, and He would never allow that to happen.
Our Prince is faithful and true.
So He stays. He stands between us and the evil enemy of our souls.
And He says, “To get to her, you have to go through me.”
Our noble Prince is betrayed, captured, beaten, and eventually murdered.
He dies for us. And, because He dies, we are saved.
But the story doesn’t end there. This is a story to restore all hopes. This is a story of unending love.
Our Prince is raised from the dead. He slayed the dragon. The battle is over, and He is the victor.
And then He comes back for us. He says He will never leave us: “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20).
Our Prince. Our rescuer. Our savior.
This Prince’s name is Jesus Christ.
The greatest love story ever written is the story of Jesus’ life from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in the Bible.
Jesus loves you more than you could ever imagine. He is greater than any of the princes of your daydreams. He will rescue you if you’ll allow Him.
Jesus is the restorer of hope. If you believe in Him, you will have everlasting life with Him (John 3:16).
But don’t take my word for it. Read it for yourself in the Bible.
