A change of terms

So, you may or may not have reccognized that the very title of my blog has changed. Recently the Lord has been speking to my heart through and about "the story." I'm now reccognizing that there is no worldview apart from the story. God desires for us to know and share His story, his narrative, which is still in motion. We are all most simply alive to do 3 things. Be known by our God, know our God, and make our God known. We do so most effectively through the story. Your place in ministry is at it's core your stage to proclaim His story. Your business, your brush, your hands, your pen, your lens are to be tools to declare Christ's meta-narrative. What He has done, what He is doing, what is coming to be. So, with that being said; can I tell you a story?

  1. I like the idea of wherever God has placed us in our lives, be it artists, business men, or sports broadcasters, we have a mission to declare Gods story. While we may not all be great pastors or what not, that does not mean our place in ministry can not be found in places we have not yet thought of. Great encouragement of an idea that I have been processing.

  6. Amen to what Nick said, especially the donuts :) I love the simplicity of your statement though...I feel like we so often over-complicate things, when really, all we need to ask ourselves is, how do we glorify God? Thanks for your thoughts!

  7. I'm pretty much going to repeat what everyone said and say that this "Be known by our God, know our God, and make our God known" is awesome! It's such an effective statement and a great reminder goal here on Earth.
