God’s Not Dead

In a world that might make ancient Rome blush, it’s refreshing to find a movie that is relevant, entertaining, and thought-provoking.

My sister-in-law sent me money for my 55th birthday, so Tom and I decided to head out early¬†to a tapas restaurant and see a movie. Noah had already started, so we opted for God’s Not Dead. I’m really glad. I don’t think Noah will be my kind of movie even though it stars Russell Crow, one of my favorites.

After I got home, I couldn’t stop thinking about the movie. We went in Mom’s room to hang out before we went to bed, and turned to channel 378 on DirecTV–the NRB Network. A Christian and an atheist were debating about the existence of God. It seemed like the storyline for the movie just continued from the theatre to my house.

God must laugh at our debates.

But He won’t laugh long.

One day, He will pour out His wrath on mankind for their stubborn disobedience and inconceivable arrogance.

Those of us who believe in God and understand grace don’t boast about being smarter or more righteous. As I understand more about God’s grace, it makes me bow low. Humbles me and amazes me. That He loves me. That He died for me.

The true story of Easter. An actual historical event. Jesus stepped into time.

For today’s Lent song, why don’t you listen to this song sung by Selah about our wonderful, merciful, Savior.

No, God’s Not Dead. He’s waiting. For you.
