The Epic Story of the Bible: Part 9, History is God’s Story
The Bible is our story. The Bible gives us hope and confidence because it reminds us of how great God is and what he has done and will do. It shows us God’s perfect plan and reminds us that he is ultimately in control of all things.
Searching for Happiness, or Joy That Comes From God
Happiness is not a bad thing, but it can be misleading. We can see how seeking happiness, rather than joy, got the first humans, Adam and Eve, in trouble. They were created by God in his image, were placed in a perfect environment with everything they would need, in the very presence of God, in relationship with him, and there was only one condition. God said, "You cannot eat from that tree."
The Epic Story of the Bible, Part 1: Genesis ; Creation and the Fall
The Bible may not be what you think it is. It is not a shabby collection of half truths, myths and contradictions that have no purpose. The Bible is filled with characters who do not just point to themselves, but point to Christ. Genesis shows us the God of wonder, our need for a Savior and our God of love through the story of creation, Adam and Eve, and the fall of humanity.
