It’s so easy for us to lose sight of the big picture. We are surrounded by needs that call for our attention and resources. We are aware of our personal strengths (and weaknesses) and the limits of our energy, time and ability.
We receive a never-ending flow of calls to action from people with a vision, a ministry or a cause that they believe demands our attention and involvement.
In the midst of all this noise, shouldn’t we take the time to check in with the Creator of the universe on His agenda?
What is God doing? What is His story? Who is He, actually? Who are we and what role do we play in what God is doing? How can we partner with Him?
The Bible’s answers to these questions can powerfully change the way we order our lives and the priorities we choose.
BUT the Bible is a huge collection of literature – there is a lot to process. Getting familiar with the entire Bible takes time and can appear overwhelming.
As an easy first step for anybody – regardless of religious or cultural background – let me recommend “Creation to Christ”, a list of stories compiled by David Watson that track the broad story of Scripture, revealing God’s character and story, and where people fit in the story (see below for PDF file).
This is particularly powerful done in conjunction with a group Discovery Bible Study (DBS) (let me know if you’d like support in running a DBS).
I’d love to hear the insights that come as you do this!
