Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our faith.
All scripture is inspired by God.Matthew 4:4 NKJV and Luke 4:4 NKJV
Jesus always responded to the attacks of the Devil: It is written
Jesus is THE Word of God... The Word became Flesh...
There is a Story Teller who is above and beyond all story tellers. We are living out the grandest story in His-Story (History). John Eldredge of Ransomed Heart Ministries wrote an amazing book called Wild at Heart. He spoke of this grand story. God created Kings use His power in His Authority to rule this planet. Those Kings fell, died, there were ransomed and redeemed. Authors like John Eldredge, Ted Dekker, Frank Peretti, Bill Meyers, have written many books exploring this strange and beautiful tale that we are living in and through.
Everything that is said, written, or preformed of any eternal significance will refer to, quote, or be influenced by this book, this love story, this instruction manual, this epic call "The Bible" or "The Word of God". Every writer who will do anything worthy of publishing will, in essence, be diving into God's Word in order to bring some small nugget from it to our view. They may examine it, expand, expound, explore, magnify, or even beautify. Fiction and Nonfiction alike.
There is a reason that Epic stories and Superhero stories have the strongest pull of all venues. Pirates of the Caribbean, Iron Man, Superman, Batman, Lord of the Rings, and Chronicles of Narnia... these stories permeate our culture and our imaginations. The reason is that we know there is more to life than going to work in order to pay bills in order to go to work... etc. Some refuse and many don't know that there is in fact an answer to that calling within our souls. As children, created and adopted by the Most High Story Teller/Author there is an innate need within us of knowing, experiencing, exploring, and having... a grand adventure. There is no end to the stories that must be told, true and make believe alike. This is among the things I feel a call to do... but have yet to fully embrace... it is time... to take a step.
