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 their stories

are so much more than

just a story

you may have learned in

Sunday school

because

HE IS

more than

just a story.

He is a

Real God

who

ONCE UPON A TIME

created

you

giving you

A Real Life

that He continues to edit

as

He takes you

From Rags to Riches

and that makes your

REAL STORY

more than

just a story

because it becomes

His Story

making you so much more than just a story.

REAL LIFE. REAL STORIES. REAL GOD.
