Luke 1:1-4

The book of Luke was written to a man named Theophilus. We know nothing about him except that this book of Scripture and the book of Acts are addressed to him. Most Biblical scholars agree that Luke is the author of both. They were written records of eyewitness accounts of Christ and the early church.

Luke was a doctor and with that responsibility would have come a system of record keeping that was accurate and precise. He kept notes.

Theophilus is not a name we hear often, but it is a message we hear often. The name means “loved by God.” It is the message that will be woven through every page of our devotions this year. We are loved by God!

It is a message to us.

“Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.”

Luke 1:1-4

So, from the very first day of our study of Luke, no matter what lies ahead, we have a message to hold close to our hearts.

We are loved by God!

Learn it! Love it! Live it!

The book of Luke is addressed to one man, Theophilus. But it is addressed to all who are loved by God.
