“The Story keeps you hungering and thirsting for more, not only more of the old story, but the next chapter.”

Story - “When I was in high school and playing football I had a coach that was mean, strict, and well we called him satan. Now he was actually a very nice man, but we never saw that side of him...”
I’m excited about this Story. Why? because I’m apart of it.
My story started when I was in 2nd grade in Carole Dobbs and Carole Baily’s Sunday School Class. On a Sunday morning we were lead in the sinners prayer and at that moment I know Jesus came into my heart and life, as my savior and my guide.
1 Timothy 1:12–14 NIV
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 1:15–17 NIV
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:18–19 NIV
Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith.
This is the Command that was charged…
1 Timothy 1:18-19
1 Timothy 1:3–5 NIV
As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith. The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
The POINT - To love THE STORY is to own your story and get strength, courage, and mission from it, and that mission is a personal one.
