A Gospel Project Story

September 11, 2014 at 7:05 am Leave a comment

As part of The Gospel Project team, I often hear stories of how God is using this Christ-centered curriculum in churches all over the country. I recently worshiped with Eternal Church in South Carolina, where I was told the story of Evan.

Evan’s parents were new in their faith when they started visiting the church. One Sunday after a church service, one of the kids leaders saw Evan with his mom in the hallway—stopped them—and told his mom how well Evan was doing in class.

At that point, Evan turned to his mom and began telling her the story of God’s covenant with Abraham, how his offspring would be as many as the stars, and how his seed would be a blessing to all nations.

The mom, a new believer in Christ Jesus, began to cry. With tears streaming down her face, she said to the kids ministry teacher, “I am beginning to learn all these things. And when we talk at night about the Bible with Evan, he is teaching us the story of redemption.”

Here is the awesome part of the story. While Evan is learning Bible stories, he is also learning the Bible Story, the story of redemption through Jesus Christ. This is what The Gospel Project is all about. Helping people understand the gospel of Jesus Christ, and helping them see that—from Genesis to Revelation—Jesus isn’t just part of the Bible story, He is the point of the story.
