Have I ever told you that I love to tell stories? I really love to tell stories. A lot. Find me a good story, and I'll retell it a million times. It's safe to say they play an important role in my life. I find it hard to believe I'm the only one like this. Let's face it, stories play important roles in our lives.
My professor Brandon once said, "Stories are the webs that entangle all of us." Stories are so important, even Jesus used them to teach. The world communicates through stories.
Pastor Seth asked us a phenomenal question the other day when he said, "We are all storytellers. Are we living and making stories that are worth telling?"
Donald Miller has an entire book on this entitled A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. Max Lucado addresses this when he talks about how God not only knows your story but He wrote it.
And here's a secret: even though you are the main character in your story, it is not about you. Look it up; check the Bible. All stories, even your own life story, is about Jesus Christ.
Jeffrey Meinz does a great job of telling Jesus' lifestory in six minutes. The video quality isn't great, especially for the first 25 seconds, but it gets better. The very end gives you a nice shot of how many people where there. You should play Where's Waldo, and see if you can find me.
But seriously, friends, is the story you're living worth telling?
