The Story video series artistically portrays the great story of our Creator, and our existence within that story. From the epic to the infinitesimal, exploring this story moves us closer to a God who knows us, loves us, and grants meaning to our searching.
“For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.'” Acts 17:28
Look around you. What do you see and hear? Take it in. Now have another look around, and think about this:
“The earth is Yahweh’s and everything in it.”
Every mountain, every tree, every insect, every star, every sub-atomic quark, every person… is right now finding it’s source and being sustained by Someone in particular. And that Someone really, really loves us.
That Love was loudest when our Creator entered into the experience of being created, just like us. He wasn’t recognised for who he was. He spoke from a very different paradigm than we’d grown used to; one where the last come first, we lose our life to find it, and love is the strongest force in the universe. He backed it up by healing the sick and performing lots of other crazy, meaning-filled miracles. In (what looked like) the end, he was arrested and handed down a sentence of capital punishment for his “disruptive” claims and behaviour.
But death did not have the final word.
The bodily resurrection of Jesus revealed so much—not least the extent of God’s ability and commitment to redeem all that’s lost, to reconcile all things, and to make all things new. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we, his followers, have been commissioned to go into all the world and make known this Good News to every creature.
