The gospel is THE three-act story. The biblical authors did not present the story of the Bible in three acts so we could understand it better. Instead, we understand stories better because they reflect the storyline of the gospel. We were created for stories that echo the gospel. Every Christian has the gospel storyline in their life. We all have a creation, fall, redemption, and God will resolve our story as well.
If you were looking in at the story of your life right now, what would you see? Are you at a peak or are you in a valley? Are you flourishing? Flourishing should bring to mind a vigorous state of thriving and prospering; of luxuriant growth. Are you languishing? Languishing is spiritual apathy.
