Have you been reading The Story with us? Have you been able to find your place in God’s story? So far we’ve looked at several people: Adam, Eve, Noah, Abraham, Sarah and Joseph. Each character was a flawed, everyday person. But it was because they had a relationship with God that placed them as characters in God’s Story.
Everyday Church is just a young community of everyday Christians in a big city. And we may be tempted to believe that in the grand scheme of things, we don’t matter that much to what God is doing in the world. But that’s not true, because we’re not just living our own stories – we’re a part of God’s Story.
“We’re Christ’s representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their difference and enter into God’s work of making things right between them. We’re speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he’s already a friend with you. How? you ask. In Christ, God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God” (2 Corinthians 5:18-21 MSG).
Take a moment and pray that God would use us (including you!) to bring more people into His Story.
