Stories

Why Do We Tell Stories?

Stories bring honor and glory to Jesus Christ.

God is at work all around us and we can give him praise when we highlight all that He is up to. We do everything we can to let the church and the rest of the world in on the great things God is accomplishing, which deepens our worship of him through that knowledge.

Stories encourage the saints.

As our eyes are opened to what God is doing around us, we are encouraged to take our eyes off ourselves and put our focus on God and His work. We are encouraged to press on in the midst of disheartening circumstances, suffering and trials and daily discouragements. We are given the gift of hope as we remember the God we serve, the One who keeps His promises and is fulfilling His redemption story right in our midst.

Stories exhort our people to action.

Stories can be used to move in the hearts and actions of our body of believers as the Holy Spirit works in them to give them courage to embrace mission, step out in faith, and to believe God can use them. Stories remind us that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

Gospel Outposts

Posted by Kendra Duty on

Good Friday has been aptly coined a “bright darkness.” The sadness of our Savior’s suffering and death brought earth-quaking, curtain-ripping, sun-hiding blackness to the earth, but on this side of history, we can see the hope of the resurrection rising on that dark day. So do...

Gospel Calling

Going to the nations” is a phrase often heard in Christian circles, and with it comes the idea of traveling far away to share the gospel with unreached people, images of small, smiling children, and a courageous fulfillment of Jesus’ commission in Matthew 28...

The Long Road of Obedience

Posted by Allen Duty on

Six airports. Five flights. Four days. And that was just to get to my final destination so I could begin serving our missionaries in Asia Pacific last month. But the small sacrifices I made to travel that far pale in comparison to the sacrifices our missionaries made to get there. After...
