The Greatest Story Ever Told

And he said, “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day.  It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’  You are witnesses of all these things.  Luke 24:46–48

It is the greatest story ever told.

Once upon a time, the Son of God came to earth, became a man, lived a sinless life, and showed the world a love that was beyond their comprehension.  It was a love greater than anything they had ever seen before.  This love was so amazing and so misunderstood that the evil people in the world sought to destroy it.   And they thought they succeeded.

But they were wrong.

The Messiah, the Savior of the World, suffered and died, and on the third day He rose from the dead.

Why did He do it?  This Scripture tells us the reason why.  It is the simple and beautiful message of the cross: “There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.”

This Scripture also tells us that the message will be proclaimed to all the nations.

Have you done your part?  Have you told the story?  It isn't a fish tale; it is a fisherman's tale.  A man came--a perfect, sinless man--having nothing but love for all humanity.  And, this man taught us how to become fishers of men.

May we continue to tell the miraculous story, the greatest story anyone could ever tell, that others might know the real life we find in Jesus Christ.
