HIS story continues


For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

That is a story of compassion, of loss, of life, of meaning, of struggle meets strength, of purpose overtaking pain.  Let this story deep in to your heart.  And when you are squeezed something will be seen that will far outlive you.  This is Jesus’ story that continues to inspire us.

Our series HIS story, YOUR story continues at The Community Fellowship.  Yesterday we talked through some of Hebrews 11 and how faith shapes our story.  Literally as we choose to please God our story becomes one with God’s story and His plan for our lives.

2 Corinthians 5:7  NASB
for we walk by faith, not by sight—

That is not what is normal.  It often will not feel natural.  Think about the fact that salvation is a one-time deal but is to be lived out.  Walk away from this story and find life even more difficult.

There is a price, a high price that has to be paid when we walk away from the life and story God desires for us.  If we stay close and follow, the blessings and rewards are going to be out this world.  We ought to desire those stories.

So, tell me about your story.  Have you found a connection with God?  Is there more to come?  Don’t let it stop here.

It is my desire today to add to your story.  I want to help you define faith in your life.  Think with me about how you came to faith.

Keep on.

Matthew 7:8  NIV
For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

May our stories continue to grow strong, and may we share our story with others so they will come to know our great and might God.
