Salvation Story

How would you summarize the story of salvation?

I would say that it’s about sin. Our sin.

Jesus died to forgive our sins.

But, what is sin?

What if you were part of a generation that didn’t identify with the idea of sin?

Taking that further, if you grew up outside the church would you even understand the concept of sin?

I bring this up because most of the messages I’ve heard focus on the idea of sin.

What do we do if people don’t identify with that?

Maybe we need to shift our focus.

Change our perspective.

Tell a different story.

Now, I’m not proposing that we change the Bible. I’m proposing that we change the way we present it.

What if the salvation story was about restoration?

What if it was about making things new?

What do you think?

Would it make a difference?

  1. Yeah man I agree! It is getting tougher for the church to relate with those who don’t know (or want to know) about words that insiders know.
