When we take our daughters out to shows, theme parks or to watch a movie they get so happy. But do you know what makes them even more excited?

When they see their favorite characters! I’ve noticed that they pick one character from every movie or show that they relate to the most. Many times they want to be like that character. We adults aren’t so different. That’s because we want to be a part of the story and play a good role in it. Everyone wants to be Batman, but no one wants to be Alfred the butler. Everyone wants to be Buzz Lightyear but no one wants to be Ham. Everyone wants to be Charlie with the golden ticket but no one wants to be an Oompa-Lumpa.

But what if you don’t know the role you play in the story? Few things are worse than not knowing your part in the story. You may even feel like you’re not a part of the story at all. But what if I told you that you are a part of a Master Story so incredible it spans beyond this life into eternity? You are a part of God’s story and you have an important role that will bring clarity and purpose to your life. Jesus died and resurrected from the dead so that you can be able to play that role and be a part of His Kingdom. It’s much better to play a part in God’s story than to try to make your own.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.   Jeremiah 29:11
