Today in the 31-Day Challenge we read…

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.”  1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Many people see the Bible as merely a collection of stories. In reality, God’s Word represents a single narrative, a thread from Creation to Fall to Redemption to New Creation. This is God’s Story. Once we understand this Big Picture perspective, it changes how we see God, what He’s done for us, and how we share His Story with others.

Today’s challenge is to sort out for yourself what YOU will tell the first chance YOU get to describe the story of God. Can you share the Big Picture of God’s Story in two to four minutes?

Here is a video you might watch for background information. Use it for inspiration but NOT for memorization. Put God’s Story into your own words so that you own it and can share it naturally.

Want an overview ‘script’ in printed form?

1) Here’s one in PDF format.

2) This text plus outline version is, according to some, easier to remember.

3) And this format combines print with pictures, in an attempt to make it even easier to remember. All three printed versions are similar.
