Season One

The One Story is the story of the Bible, the whole story, the story of it all! Not of all that is, but of all that matters, into which all that is fits. You fit, so you have a role to play. What role? It depends! Can you follow directions and stick to a script? Are you interested in a leading role, looking to be a bit player, or intending to be a no-show? Your storyline won’t change the storyline, but will determine how the story will end for you.

Episode One - Good
Perhaps the most memorable line from the Bible is its first, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. So few words, so much wonder! With these words The One Story begins. Its Director, Producer and Star bursts onto the scene to create . . . everything. Everything The One Story requires, God speaks into existence! The most stunning case of “said and done”!

Episode Two - Very Good!
You are magnificent . . . because God made you magnificent! But don’t get a big head. All human beings are magnificent, in one essential way—not in our looks, our complexity, our ability . . . our anything. It’s in the way God made us to reside in us and live through us. It’s how we “work,” how we function. When we function as designed . . . magnificent indeed! When we don’t!

Episode Three - Very Bad
With Genesis 1 & 2 the stage is set. Creation is good, even glorious (showing the glory of God). Human beings are very good, even godly (like God in moral character). The One Story has all the makings of a wonderful story. All is well in God’s well-ordered world. Take a good, long look now. We won’t see anything this glorious again until the Bible’s final 2 chapters (Revelation 21-22).

Episode 4 - The Worst
Sin distorted God’s image, flipping it 180° out of phase. Without God’s presence producing His glory, we sought self-glory. Love for God turned to self-love. Trust in God shifted to trust in self. Godliness flipped to godlessness. To see the complete makeover sin made of us, just attach negative prefixes to everything God made us to be—ungodly, immoral, disobedient, misguided, deviant, inhumane, atheistic, irrational, illogical and nonsensical. Adam and Eve passed their distorted image to their progeny. They had children after their (fallen) image and likeness (5:1-2). When Adam fell the human race fell, because we were all “in Adam.”

Episode Five - The Best
Hairpin turn ahead in The One Story. Ready for it? You are, if you’ve gotten the message—We’re all “In Adam” living outside God’s blessing and contrary to God’s design, we’re hopelessly fallen . . . and we can’t get up! It’s “all-she-wrote” for humanity! So it would seem, and so it should be!
