God Loves Stories

Article by Allison Kendall:

In my walk with the Lord, I have always enjoyed looking for ways that we as image bearers are
like God. It says in Genesis 1:27 that “God created man in his own image.” There are many
things about you and me that are like God. One way I believe that we are like God is that we
both love stories. I love to read books and watch movies where characters build their identity
and deal with the circumstances in their lives. I believe that God loves stories, also. I know this
by the way God teaches us. He has given us a collection of characters and storylines in the
Bible that serve as a guide for our lives. Stories of Abraham, Joseph, and Daniel fill our minds
with understanding and wisdom. We learn about life through these stories, and they give us
instruction on how to walk in light and life and how to avoid darkness and sin. What is also
beautiful is that God creates a story in each of us. We have our own set of characters and
drama. God has written that I would be born in Shattuck, Oklahoma, that I would come to know
him personally as my Savior in the basement of First Baptist Church of Laverne, that I would
marry Joel Kendall, and that one day I would get the opportunity to lead in a church (something I
had no idea was coming). What a wonderful way he has built my story and yours! But the most
important story that our God wants us to connect with is the story of His Son. Jesus left heaven,
came as a baby to live a perfect life as a human, and then died for our sins so that one day He
could give each of us an opportunity to add “redeemed” to the timeline of our life. Oh how I love
that story and how that one story has brought peace, joy, confidence, and freedom to mine.
I love to tell the story;
‘Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love
