We truly are part of an amazing story. It is a great unfolding narrative that spans eternity. It is not our story, in that we are not the hero. That is something the world often twists. However, our story is found within it. We are part of the story, we are woven in, intertwined, and participants. Therefore, as we start the New Year, there could be nothing better for us to do, than to remind ourselves of the story we live in, the gospel message. While the gospel is a declaration, it is good news, it is a statement of truth. It is also a story. It is the narrative of God, and the world, and us. It is a great rescue mission, a love letter, it is the story of all of us, and we are invited into it.
