Gods Not Dead 2

Mid-Week Challenge

Mid-Week Challenge

Have you seen any good movies lately?  Apparently many of us have!  In spite of Hollywood’s efforts to repackage super hero stories for a quick buck and in the process disappoint and turn off comic book nerds like myself, there have been some pretty good offerings for Christians.  This past weekend God is Not Dead 2 and Miracles From Heaven both placed in the top five in box offices sales! 

What does that tell us? People are still interested in faith based stories and are willing to put their money down to experience them.  Christians have the attention of Hollywood.  Movies such as Easter’s Risen gives viewers an exciting look at the “what ifs” and the possibilities found in story lines not specifically mentioned in the Bible.  This new interest should come as exciting news for the Church.  What an opportunity to engage the unchurched with the “rest of the story” as folks discuss these movies on Monday mornings.  This is also a great reminder to all Christians that we need to brush up on our Scripture knowledge.  As we engage our culture in these stories we need to make sure we know what the Bible actually says and how these movie themes tie in to everyday life.  It is getting harder to find ways to bring up spiritual subjects without some type of debate, but God has given us a golden opportunity in these movies.  Don’t miss your chance to help someone understand what they are seeing on the Big Screen and make application that will make a difference for all eternity!

Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?" And he said, "Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Acts 8:30 – 31
