What unanswered questions do you have about your life? Some of us struggle to find meaning, others wonder about identity, and all of us want to be loved. Your story–the events and relationships that define you–will guide how you answer these questions. But God has a story too. His story is about sending Jesus to this broken world to mend all that is broken. Pastor Robert K. Cheong helps readers connect their story to God’s story, which will transform how they live and love.
We all have our own back story–our sometimes unconscious beliefs–that have been shaped by our families, relationships, and life experiences. Our stories shape the personal narratives we live out: “I am not loved.” “No one cares for me.” “I have to be better than everyone around me.” “How I look is the most important thing about me.” Our back story guides us in how we relate to God and others. But are these reference points true? And how are they affecting our lives today? Cheong helps readers unpack their story and learn to live out of God’s new story. Readers will discover how to retell their story based on who God is, what he’s done, and the call to love him and others.
Learn how the dynamics of creation, fall, redemption, and consummation shape our past struggles, confirm our future hope, and ensure our ability to live in God’s power in the present. At the intersection of God’s story and your own, you’ll find that his love sustains you in your weariness, guides you in your confusion, and comforts you in your suffering. The story of his love will compel you to live for him.
