A good story has the power to change you. The characters, values, emotions, and even words of a good story have the power to change your life. But God’s story—the gospel—doesn’t just have the power to change you, it has the power to completely transform every aspect of life forever! In learning to walk in the way of Jesus, there are many things to learn in the “how.” How to treat others, how to speak the truth in love, how to act in anger, how to forgive those who have wronged you, etc. But if you don’t understand the “why” (which is found in the gospel story), you won’t have the power to experience the full transformation of walking in the way of Jesus.
