Imagine I pour the thousand pieces of a thousand piece jig-saw onto the table in front of you. If you are going to fit them all together you will need the picture on the box. When it comes to fitting together all the different pieces of our lives we need some kind of big picture to work from. The Christian conviction is that the Bible gives us that big picture.
Many people find it hard to get excited about the Bible. It seems to be nothing more than a collection of outdated rules and morality tales. But we will see that all sixty-six books of the Bible hang together to tell one beautiful story. It is a story that stretches back to before the world began and looks on to a future beyond our wildest imagination; it is a story that tells us why we matter; it is a story that makes sense of why we love and why we cry; it is a story that accounts for the beauty and for the suffering in our world; it is a story that sets us free from the past and give us hope for the future; it is a story that shows us what our lives are for.
But above all, it is love story: it is the story of the God who loves us and who has been unfolding his plan to rescue us and restore us to the life with Him that we were created for.
And with pictures on a clothes-line that is the story I am going to try and tell…
So, if you’re not sure what to make of the Bible because you’ve never heard its story, here’s your chance – all in under an hour.
