Reconnect One: Love to Tell the StorySeptember 24, 2019
The old hymn declares, “I love to tell the story, ‘twill be my theme in glory, I love to tell the story of Jesus and His love.” Is that true of us? Do we love to tell the story of Jesus? Do we “love to tell the story of unseen things above; of Jesus and his glory, of Jesus and his love?”
The world loves to tell stories about Jesus – but the world’s stories are often not the whole story, so here’s an idea. Maybe we need to refresh the story in our own minds. Read the gospel of Mark. It takes about 90 minutes to read it in its entirety. Haven’t got 90 minutes? How about 20 minutes to read Ephesians or 5 minutes to read Jude? Seriously? Haven’t got 5 minutes to read Jude?
Friends, before we sing again about loving to tell the story maybe we need to refresh the story in our own minds and then actually tell someone else.
