I'd love to hear how you view the importance of God's story in your life. Thank you.
After thirty years of computer programming and business administration, I abandoned the technology I loved most so I could pursue what I hated most: writing and teaching. Why? Several vivid dreams led me to believe God wanted to change my direction. No matter how difficult that journey was, it had to be better than my own way. Therefore, in the twenty years that followed, writing and teaching became my greatest treasures in life.
I learned that if people wanted to experience God and fulfill the Great Commission, they needed to tell their life-changing stories. Well-crafted stories would deliver an experience of truth that the audience would otherwise reject. Also, the storytellers’ lives would be changed, and churches would acquire a new delight in feeding multitudes in ways that the hungry could never have anticipated.
The book of Revelation describes the powerful arrival of the Kingdom of God and the casting down of Satan by people who overcame by “the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.” The storytellers’ experience was so satisfying that they were willing to give their lives for the message (Revelation 12:10–11). For centuries, churches have preached the blood of the Lamb. But they may have missed the next important part: a ministry to help members tell their stories.
That’s why my Twitter handle is @ManWithTheSCOOP and I identify myself as “Promoting God’s Story in Your Life.”
Everyone has a story worth telling, and it should be told in a way that brings people closer to Christ. If you want to know more about the importance of a writing ministry, you need to hear Frank speak.
