The Story We Find Ourselves In
March 18, 2021
As world continues to change by becoming more post-Christian and adapting to a post-pandemic world, the church finds itself in a period where change is the new normal. For this season, we are looking at the book of Acts to remind ourselves how the early church followed God as God led the church into the future that was unfolding before them.
As the disciples continue to preach the good news of Jesus, we begin to see a clash of stories. After his arrest, Stephen retells the story of Israel, but in emphasizing different points—namely the resistance of Israel to the prophets of God—those in the synagogue are enraged. As human beings, we all tell stories. It becomes important, then, to examine the stories we tell ourselves and hold those up against the story of God.
