Spilling the Beans
Sunday, we concluded the sermon series, “Tell Me A Story”, by looking at Jesus’ words to the disciples before his ascension. He instructs them in the Scriptures and reminds them of the change they have experienced in knowing him, Jesus, and the continuing transformation which will unfold over their life because of his death, burial, and resurrection. The disciples by the following of Christ and the repentance of sin have under gone a forgiveness which transforms. Jesus then tells them they are witnesses, by personal experience of this great truth, and they are to go and tell THE STORY. THE STORY comes alive when we tell our story demonstrating transformation at work. Our story of sin, shame, repentance, forgiveness, grace, mercy, and God’s transforming love working in us is a story we must share. Sunday I will share my story as we look at this passage. My story and yours is THE STORY lived out in evident and tangible ways for others to see. Are you telling your story and THE STORY?
