Your Story

05/05/2011

Let’s pray:

 Gracious God,

In the beginning, there was nothing. That could have been the end of the story but it wasn’t—You created the Heavens and the Earth.

When we allowed Sin to enter the world, that could have been the end of the story but it wasn’t—You had a plan to send a Redeemer.

Jesus, when You were crucified by the very ones You came to save, that could have been the end of the story but it wasn’t—You took our Sins upon Yourself and died with them.

Jesus, when You were placed in the tomb, that could have been the end of the story but it wasn’t—You arose and the stone was rolled away.

Jesus, when you returned to the Father, thatcould have been the end of the story, but it wasn’t—You sent the Holy Spirit as a Comforter, Guide and Intercessor.

And when your believers die, that could be the end of the story but it won’t be—they will join You in Heaven, worshipping at the throne and singing, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty!”

We come now to worship—to find our place in the story. Your story. Thank you for giving us a part in it. Amen.

Great reminder -- one I need every day. This isn't my story it's God's story becoming my story and how blessed we are to have a part in it. And it's a story without end (the link is just for Kent, he'll remember it ). Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Kent!
