Sharing Your Story: “Instagram Stories”

The Story-Formed Way is a 10-week version of the Story of God and was designed both to lead people through the basics of the Gospel and provide a foundational structure for the key doctrines of Christianity.

The True Story: This 6-week version was written by Soma pastors to help groups engage the big movements of God’s redemption and restoration.

Week 2: God’s Story

In the first column of this chart, we’ve listed the dominant questions asked by each movement of God’s story. In the second column, we’ve listed some of the objective, biblical answers to those questions which come when God’s story is our dominant story. In the third column, re-write a few of the areas of disbelief you struggle with. In the final column, consider alternative narratives that reinforce this area of unbelief. What is the story you are believing instead of the story of God?

Week 4: Armor of God

The Apostle Paul explains our weapon in the battle of our mind is the “armor of God” found in Ephesians 6. “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil…”

Week 4: Fruit to Root Part 1

For this exercise, practice the “fruit to root” process by walking through as many areas of unbelief in your own life as possible using the questions provided.

Week 4: Fruit to Root Part 2

For this exercise, we reconstruct a right belief of God as it relates to those specific areas of unbelief.

Week 6: Engaging in Story

Do you know how to tell your gospel story? Or how to see Jesus as the hero of your story? Every person you encounter, every community you enter into, and every culture you engage has a dominant story with many sub-stories. The dominant story is the most prominent, compelling, and controlling informant for how people perceive God, others, and the world. Some call this a worldview because it is the lens through which they view the world. One’s worldview shapes how they receive and process information, engage in relationships, make decisions, and shape their philosophy and beliefs. This free guide is designed to help you discover your own dominant story, as well as equip you listen for other people’s dominant story by asking questions. Authored by Abe Meysenburg

Week 6: Jesus is the Better ____

Week 5 asked to list ways Jesus is “the Better…” in general areas of your own life. Now we’ll ask you to do the same, using specific images from the Bible.

Week 6: Instagram Stories

Each box represents a different part of your story. For each part of the story, draw a still-frame picture that captures the essence of that stage…

Week 6: Three Pillars

Reflect on three key events in your life, which have shaped, influenced, and directed the other elements of your life. Using the images on pages 8–9…

Week 7: Display the Gospel

In the first column of this exercise, write some biblical commands God gives his people in the Bible (in other words, who are God’s people called to be, and how does God command us to display the gospel?). In the second column, explain how each command reflects who God is and what he does. In the third, explain how God clearly modeled the command in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Then in the final column, write some of the results in the Bible as God’s people both did and didn’t fulfill those commands. We give you one example.

The Saturate Field Guide is another resource we have developed for groups to journey through together.

Check it out and see if this is a good next step for your group after finishing the Gospel Fluency Handbook.
