In the introduction we establish our character. Who are we? What drives us? What are our God-given existential cries? What is our mission in life? What will ultimately fulfill us? What happy ending are we looking for?
In the body we show with some examples how we've tried to achieve this mission. At the same time, we show how there's rising unresolved tension. Why? Because if God has given us drives, but we're trying to live without God, then these drives are largely going unsatisfied. Or perhaps we've been using an idol to fulfill these God-given drives.
At the bridge, we present an "ah-ha" moment in which we realize that it's Jesus we've been looking for. All our God given drives have been directing us to him. We explain who Jesus is, and what he's done for us.
In the climax, we give our lives to Christ. This can be a gradual awareness or a sudden moment. But now that we've given our lives to Christ, we have found God's answer to our mission. Jesus satisfies our God-given drive.
In the denouement we give an example of what our new life looks like. This is our new normal.
