Excited to TELL the Story?

One of the best things about knowing the bottom line story of the Bible is that you can then easily share it with others. All of us have people in our lives that could benefit from knowing the greatest love story ever told, and God has asked us to be prepared to share it with them.

Take a minute and think about the people in your life who are far from God – people who need to know the story the Bible tells. Is it a family member? A friend? Someone you work with? A neighbor?

AYou can easily share the storyline of the Biblelso think about the believers you know who couldn’t explain the simple story of the Bible to someone else. Most Christians fall into that group. Do you have friends, family members, home Bible Studies, or Sunday School classes, that could benefit by coming to understand how the Bible all fits together into the one story of God’s love for us that is woven through the entire Bible?

The list of people could be endless because most people simply don’t know the bottom line story of the Bible.

Not long ago a friend of Bible StoryBoards told us about his 6-year old daughter who used his iPhone and our Bible StoryBoards app to share the story of the Bible with two different adults (an uncle and a family friend) who don’t have a relationship with God. Using the 15 StoryBoard pictures she talked them each through the story of God’s love for us and what He’s done to bring us into a relationship with Him.

Whether you are 6 or 66, Bible StoryBoards can help you tell the story of the Bible to the people in your life who need to know it.

Here are three tips for making the most of the opportunities that come your way to share the story of the Bible.

1. Prepare Yourself to Share the Story.

Like the Apostle Paul you want to be ready and willing to share the Good News found in the Bible with others (see Colossians 4:3). Here are some things you can do right now to make sure you are ready.

2. When a door opens, simply tell the story.

Simply Tell the StoryEveryone loves stories. That’s the mindset to have as you share the story of the Bible with others. It’s a story. So tell it like a story.

3. Tailor your approach to their needs.

That’s what Jesus did. With Nicodemus Jesus focused on his need to be born again. In His encounter with the woman at the well, He offered living water. With the rich young ruler, He dealt with the problem of possessions. Each unique opportunity needed a one-of-a-kind conversation.Draw the Storyline

There really are a number of ways to tell the story of the Bible. No one way is the right way. With a readiness and willingness to share the story, and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s leading, God will use your faithfulness to spread the good news that His story tells – God loves us and wants a relationship with us, now and forever. And that’s something worth telling others about.
