A Good News Story for You and for Children

A few days from now Michelle and I will be in Chicago celebrating Christmas with our daughter Hannah, son-in-law Corey, and our grandson Lincoln. I’m excited for all the obvious reasons, but now I’m excited for yet another one.¬† There’s nothing I want more for Lincoln than that he understand the beauty and glory of the gospel Story. Next week we are going to be watching a beautiful short film about that Story. Here’s the good news about this good news: you can watch it today!

My friends at Spread Truth, who brought us The Story as a fantastic tool for sharing Christ, have done it again. This time they’ve created the Storymaker, a short film about the gospel Story especially for children. It is beautiful. Watch it for yourself, but if you are involved with children at any level, please check it out. Better, watch it with them.

You can now watch the film HERE. Please help spread the word on your social media platforms, at your church, and with others. Let’s let everyone know this great Story!

Good News for a Change: The Gospel Story and Some Great Resources

If you’ve been in my classes, read books I’ve written of late, or heard me teach at a church or event, you know how much I love talking about the gospel of Jesus Christ from the perspective of the great Story found in all Scripture. I’ve found this to be vital in my witness, particularly to those who don’t really get the gospel or what Christianity really is.

In class I use a couple of tools with students. One is the 3 Circles our own North American Mission Board utilizes. It’s a version of the Story one can write on a napkin–and I’ve led people to Christ with a napkin using it–to explain God’s grand Story. I also use The Story and have taught it often in churches and events.

The Story comes from a ministry called Spread Truth. Some time back they made a beautiful film telling this Story. I want you to see it here in case you’ve not yet seen it. It may be a great thing to show in your services this Christmas season. Here it is:

Tonight, Spread Truth is releasing a new film. I will share more about it tomorrow, but make a note to watch the new film The Storymaker as soon as possible. It goes live at 530 EST tonight HERE. More tomorrow, but in the meantime, watch the video above and enjoy some good news!
