Where is God Working to Un-cancel Our Individual Story?

John 21: 15-19

In a world where we are quick to define people by their darkest hours and their mistakes, we tend to assume that our lives cannot be anything more than stories of error and failure. However, the good news of the gospel offers a different trajectory for our lives: one of transformation and redemption. When we examine ourselves and our lives through the lens of Christ rather than through a worldly or internal lens, we see hope, for our worst moments are exactly what the Father uses to write the most powerful parts of our stories. If we refuse to give into narratives of shame and failure, if we are honest with ourselves and with others about the fallen places we start from, and if we allow that honesty to drive us to love and follow Christ, then our lives become part of the Father's grand narrative, which is an eternal story of endless grace.
