On night 3 of Fuge 2016, I preached a sermon entitled, “Timber.” The passage was from Romans 1:1-6 before venturing into a narrative of the entire biblical story regarding how the cross is the centerpiece and not a later addition. In the “Unashamed” theme, it was a way to encourage listeners to get lost in the big story of which Jesus is the main character.
- The Bible is not a collection of disconnected, moralistic stories.
- The Bible is the one story of how the cross of Christ will redeem a fallen world.
- I can either play the leading role in my earthly kingdom or a supporting role in God’s heavenly Kingdom.
