I remember sitting in the theater watching The Nativity Story. I was moved on a very deep level to tears.
- Was it because the movie was so well made?
- Was it the great acting?
- Was it the music?
- Was it because of the godly lifestyle of the actors?
None of the above. I was moved because I believed that what I was watching was a true story. I was moved because I realized that my faith is real!*
“… Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved…” Acts 16:31
I just watched a video trailer for a movie called Apostle Peter & the Last Supper:
The story of Jesus is real. The Bible is true. We can live with hope for personal redemption and redemption of the whole world. We are heading towards “a new heaven and a new earth.”
Are you waiting in terror for the end of the world? Leave your fear behind and believe God for personal and global transformation!
We did not make up these truths, in fact they are making us!
“I did not make it, no it is making me, it is the very truth of God not the invention of any man…” Rich Mullins
As my friend Dean Niforatos sometimes says:
“We’re not here to take cover, we’re here to take over!”
So… Be encouraged today.
- Do you feel like a failure?
- Do you find yourself lacking hope that you will ever change?
- Are you troubled by the state of the world around you?
Remember the birth, life, death, resurrection, and ultimate return of Jesus Christ and take courage. We cannot lose.
*I know I have the wrong verb tense consistency here, but I don’t wish to say my faith “was” real because it is living and active right now. 🙂
