If you have listened to The Storyteller for a while you’ve probably noticed that though each one’s story is different – there is a common theme. They all have found a new life when they put their hope and trust in Jesus Christ.
We’re not talking about religion here… we’re talking about a real, life-changing relationship with their Creator. They have experienced the power of Jesus – that He is greater than the spirits and stronger than their fears. Those held captive by addictions, shame, and grief have been set free. They know what it is to truly be forgiven for their wrong-doing and walk in peace with the Most High God. They are able to live without guilt, condemnation, and fear of judgment. And even though life can still be hard, their testimony is that they have been changed forever.
For many, their decision to follow Jesus has resulted in being shunned by family, friends, and their communities. Some have been called “apples” and mocked for following the so-called “White man’s religion”. Sadly, even their identity as a Native person has been questioned. But they can’t deny what God has done for them. It’s too real and personal… and they are grateful.
Are you interested in what they’ve found? There really is forgiveness, peace with God, hope, purpose, and power to change through Jesus Christ. Take the journey yourself and pursue truth. Ask God to lead you. If what you find challenges your beliefs, or what you have experienced or been taught, don’t let that get in your way. Decide for yourself if what Jesus said is true. Jesus said: I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me. John 14:6 (The Bible)

Things to consider:
The Bible is God’s message written down for all people. It is historically and scientifically accurate. Though many have tried to disprove it, no one has been able to. Check it out for yourself. https://www.gotquestions.org/trust-the-Bible.html
The Bible is true. We can trust what it says. If it really is God’s word to man, then we need to listen, learn, and accept what God has to say.
Jesus is our Creator: He became a man in order to bring us back to relationship with God. He backed up what He said by what He did. He lived a perfect, moral life, healed the sick, opened the eyes of the blind, raised the dead to life, and exercised His power and authority over the spirit world.
He willingly laid down His life for others. He was buried and then was resurrected to life again. There is historical evidence to support the fact that of His resurrection. This claim has been put the test by lawyers and skeptics, yet they have been found credible and true. In fact, the evidence was so overwhelming that it has changed the minds of those seeking to disprove what happened. Jesus is alive today and can be known by anyone who will believe.
Some say that Jesus is the “whiteman’s” God. They are either misinformed or don’t want to consider the facts. Anyone who will take the time to honestly look will discover that Jesus was not a white man, and neither were his first followers. Jesus was born into a tribe of an oppressed nation in the middle east. That’s where He lived, died, and rose again. Today, people from all over the world have decided to put their trust in Jesus and follow Him… including Native North Americans. There is only one Creator and the truth is that everyone has rebelled against Him. Jesus came to save people from every tribe and nation from the judgment we all deserve. He came to restore our relationship with Him so that we could be with Him forever. He is the Creator of all – and the Savior of whoever will humble themselves and put their trust in Him.
