Did you just see that? Was it a bird, a plane or did the sky just open up? What about aliens!? OK, I see, it’s a rocketship that just launched. Makes sense. Man, what a sight to see.
Pretty good story, right?
Stories are a part of everyone’s life.
Stories are how people have expressed themselves for thousands of years and they were at the center of Jesus’ ministry.
“God has let you in on the inside story regarding the workings of the Kingdom—the hidden meanings. But the crowds—I teach them in parables as the prophet Isaiah predicted, 'So that when they look, they see and yet do not understand. When they hear, they listen and yet do not comprehend. Otherwise, they might really turn and be forgiven'” (Mark 4:11-12, VOICE).
Jesus was and still is one of the greatest storytellers of all time.
The parables He told were stories that helped people understand who He was and why He came.
Storytelling isn’t limited to talk at the dinner table with loved ones or during coffee with friends. You can now tell stories to everyone who is connected to you through social media.
Using the Story Features on Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook you can tell your stories — as well as the story of Jesus — digitally!
