Last week, I went to Chicago…
And, I saw lots of different people with lots of different stories.
Young and old.
Rich and poor.
Black and white…
And everything in between.
We all have a story.
A story of where we’ve been…and where we’re going.
A story of who we’ve been…and who we want to be.
A story of what we’ve lost…and what we hope to find.
A story of when our life changed…and when it might change again.
A story of how we became who we are…and how we want to be better.
A story of why we think we exist…and why that matters.
We all have a story that is our unique story.
But, at the end of the day, we are all image-bearers…
Created by a God who doesn’t make mistakes.
Loved by a God who can save you from anything (including yourself).
Forgiven by a God who sacrificed his greatest love to pay for your sin.
Cared for by a God who knows your needs better than you know them.
Rescued by a God who does impossible things every day.
Accepted by a God who knows what it feels like to be rejected.
If you have a personal relationship with God, this is your story.
If you don’t have a personal relationship with God, this can be your story.
So, what’s your story?
