Rebranding God's Story

“Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. And he said with a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water."”

Revelation 14:6-7 ESV

          Marketing is ultimately a business of storytelling. Brand recognition is no accident. Companies spend millions communicating a carefully crafted image. We need to retell God's story. The world needs to see him for who he is and they need to encounter a brand of Christianity which genuinely reflects his character.

          We can't go home yet, God stands ready to empower us to finish a work every man and women of God has been striving toward for thousands of years. This work is the communication of the everlasting gospel which is captured in the verses above and is summarized below.

Everlasting Gospel: Our Father fought to bring us home and was victorious! Believe and be saved!

Worship: Our God alone is worthy of our worship! Give honor where honor is due and surrender to the only one capable of bringing you true joy, the one who knit you together in your mother's womb.

Affirmative Judgement: Rejoice for redemption is drawing nigh, all heaven stands with us! The accuser is rebuked and powerless to pry us out of the Father's hand.

Creation: The intimate picture we have been given of our Creator in Genesis is no fairytale. We live only through our connection to the source of all life. We are not God's unto ourselves but priceless treasures of the one true God.

          When we engage by faith the theory of God's character as revealed by the everlasting gospel everything changes. Step by step, through time set aside with Jesus each day, our savior will translate the theory of his love into reality before our very eyes. 

Still Seeking His Face,

Pastor Andrew
