The next time someone asks me what I do – I hope to answer with:
I am a Storyteller.
I get the privilege of telling the story of God.
From a school lesson, to a youth lesson, to a weekly bible study, to leading a service, to delivering a sermon, to sitting across the table when having coffee with someone, to all of my life… I AM A STORYTELLER.
And so are you!
What sort of story do you tell?
And sometimes that requires words
Other times it is seen by our actions…
What is the story our lives portray?
The Greater Story is:
God created this beautiful world that we get to live in.
Sin has caused brokenness in the world.
The world needs fixing. It needs a Saviour.
The world needs a reminder.
God is alive and well and near.
He is not a mere option.
He is the Life Giver.
He offers us a better way to live and see and be.
He will come again. To restore all things.
We get to be part of the process.
That’s the story we get to tell!
But have you noticed your words?
Have you noticed how others speak or live?
They live in such dread
They live such gloomy lives
They live with “woe is me” chapters
They story they’re telling is rubbish!
Psalm 145: 4 says this:
“One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.”
We need to tell the positive story.
Get rid of negativity!
Get rid of all doom and gloom.
Yes, life can be tough
Yes, sometimes we’re dealt a tough hand
Yes, we are the sum of our own choices (think about that)
Each day is a gift.
Each day we have something to be grateful for.
Each day WE CAN see God doing something.
You and I, we are storytellers.
Let’s tell it right!
