What is God’s Larger Love Story?
It is the story that determines all other stories. It is His story- and all of history is woven into its magnificent tapestry.
This story is about God, it is authored by God and it is told by Him. And because God is love, the story is a romance, a love story.
This story is about us, lovingly created by God, bearing His image, pursued by Him and invited to dwell in His community of love.
This story is about brokenness. A broken world and a broken people. A pervasive and complete brokenness that is being consummately restored to the beauty and perfection of its original design.
Which brings us full circle. This is a story about love. Love that is free and nurturing and healing. Love that is pure and holy and whole. Love that changes me and transforms you. The love our hearts are thirsty for.
“You can’t live the Christian Life without understanding the Larger Story”
Life in the Larger Story
Lonely. Isolated. Empty. Confused.
Shouldn’t life be more?
More fulfilling, more meaningful, more enjoyable?
As relational beings, we all long for connection. But the moments of satisfaction in relationships, that give our hearts a taste and feel of heaven, are often so elusive. Instead of experiencing the wholeness of heaven, we are daily overcome by the brokenness and barrenness of a small and solitary life.
Doesn’t the Bible offer peace, joy, hope, and love?
That is the promise of a life lived in the Larger Story. The only way to escape the slavery of a small story that is all about self is to daily choose to live free and fully alive to the greatness of another story, God’s story.
It all begins with thirst.
Anyone who is thirsty may come to me” (John 7: 37).
