The answer to the question, ‘Who am I?’ can only be answered if we ask, ‘What is my story?’ And that can only be answered if there is an answer to the question…’What is the whole story of which my story is a part?’”
— Leslie Newbigin

Is life on earth just a billion different stories going on all at once without any meaning? Or is there something greater?

Many of us might feel the world is our own personal kingdom, and we are the rulers. If we work hard enough, we are rewarded with acceptance, accomplishment, and admiration. By default, our relationships and circumstances become informers of who we are in our own story, and how successfully (or not) we are living it out.

Sometimes our life is ruled by whatever commands our attention at the moment. Other times our life is ruled by trying to keep our frail kingdom from crumbling.

But life in God’s Kingdom isn’t just about us, and our story isn’t just about our story. Our story is a chapter within a larger, more encompassing Kingdom story that God, the Author of Life, is writing.

For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in Whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 1:13-14
