Children, especially small ones love to hear stories. The sad thing is that too often they think the whole Bible is just a story, a fantasy or make-believe.
Even sadder, is that today many adults do not accept the Bible as fact either.
We need to be passionate about relating the truth that is in God's word. We need to let people know that we BELIEVE God's word to be true.
My friend here is a work in progress, part of a children's story I'm writing. But - let me be clear....I believe in dragons. They are mentioned in the Bible, along with unicorns, leviathans (sea-beasts) and dinosaurs living the same time as man. If you read the description in Job of the behemoth with a tail as a cedar of Lebanon you have to accept that it was a dinosaur. (Job 40:15-18)
What about a man over 9 feet tall (1 Samuel 17:4)? Or the sun moving backwards and also standing still (2 Kings 20), (Joshua 10)? Or dry bones coming to life (Ezekiel 37)?
We so easily chatter about a TV program, silly videos we watch or movies we see. Why not talk about the A-MAZ-ING, true stories in the Bible? You would be surprised at the number of people who do not even know the story of Adam and Eve. And how will they know unless we tell them?
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
