Day 1: More than a Story


Was Noah and the Ark

just a story about a flood?

Was David and Goliath

just a story about a slingshot?

Was Jonah and the whale

just another story like Pinocchio?

We all know the stories

But do we know that...

Noah was

obedient

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God...Noah did everything just as God commanded him. Genesis 6

But do we know that

David

Trusted,

The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine....

All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.I Samuel 17

But do we know that

Jonah

prayed

From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. He said:

“In my distress I called to the Lord, and He answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and You listened to my cry. Jonah 2

Was Christmas

just a story about a baby in a manger?

Was Easter

just a story about a man on a cross?

Is Eternity

just about good people go to heaven?

But do we know that

The Baby had a

purpose

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as Sons. Galatians 4:4-5

But do we know that

the Cross was about

Love

“For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

We do

know

the

stories

about

Trust

Prayer

Purpose

&

Love

But do we

Believe~

that it is

more than

just a story

you may have learned in

Sunday school

because

He is

so much more than a

Sunday School Story

making your story

so much more than a story.

Let's do our homework

and

read the only textbook we will ever need

filled

not just with

Stories

because

In the beginning

In the very beginning

God created....
