Daily Grace

Feb 26, 2019

The Bible is actually one story - from Genesis to Revelation, there is a unified narrative that all points to Jesus.  This is easily seen through four plot movements: creation, fall, redemption, restoration/consummation. You may have heard this referred to as the “metanarrative” of Scripture.  Understanding this will change the way you approach the Word of God and enrich your study. You’ll even be engaging in biblical theology, which is a type of theology that focuses on how the revelation of Christ unfolds in time.  And we’ll also talk about how knowing this grand narrative impacts our own stories. This unified narrative can help us in our trials - if we’re going through hardship, we can reflect back on the Fall and how God promised a Redeemer, and He came!  And He promises to come back again and make all things new. What a gift it is that we are a part of His story. May our hearts be in awe of our great God and His story of redemption.
