In Public School stories: 9/11 from The Joy War I wrote that I thought God began this story on 9/11. I was wrong. He just woke me up to the story that day. In reality, He began the story before Creation with Christ.  Here’s what I mean.

1 Peter 1:20 and Revelation 13:8 both make it clear that Christ was crucified before the foundations of the world.  Now, just this moment I realize why Tale as old as Time, from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast strums my heart.  We are the beast and Belle the Christ figure in this revised fairy tale.  Here’s a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ0ODCMC6xs .  Coming back to the point at hand:  God has been at work for us, He is at work for us, and He will be working right up until the time He returns.  What does that look like?
