Jesus was a master story-teller, taking common occurrences from the world around him and crafting them into lessons of insight for those who had ears to hear.
Many provide insights into future events, like the coming of God’s Kingdom, the end of the world, final judgement.
But many give insights into how Jesus means his disciples to live right here, right now. It is these specific stories that we focus on this summer, seeking to have our motives and perspectives and behaviours shaped by the purposes and will of Jesus himself.
So come, listen to Jesus’ stories. Be shaped by his heart, his character, his Spirit. Have your own perspectives changed in the hearing.
And step more deeply into Jesus-Shaped living.
