GOD’S NOT DEAD … a song, a provoking thought, a movie
Yes, a song and a movie, both with a thought provoking message. The movie God’s Not Dead is about college freshman Josh Wheaton and the choice he is forced to make regarding the existence of God when his philosophy professor demands each student in his class write “God is Dead” on a piece of paper, SIGN IT and turn it in to him.
Would you willingly do that?
Josh refuses and his professor, in an attempt to humiliate him, gives Josh time at the end of several classes to make the case for the existence of God. Go see it for yourself to find out how he does!
The music, by the Newsboys, is fantastic! Their drummer, Duncan Philips is one of the best I have ever seen. I had the pleasure of watching him play at Winter Jam in Greensboro and his spinning drum solo was amazing! YouTube it, there are lots of videos of him. My two favorite Newsboy songs are GODS Not DEAD and We Believe. Find both of these on YouTube as well.
My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion
Take a moment to think of someone you know that might benefit from seeing God and Jesus portrayed in a positive light? Watching a movie where God is cool and people are fighting for Him is refreshing to say the least.
Think of anyone?
I have and I hope to get to share the movie’s message with them. Maybe you can share it with those that popped into your thoughts … I would like to challenge you with the same challenge Josh’s pastor in the movie gave him…
“So your acceptance of this challenge, if you decide to accept it, may be the only meaningful exposure to God and Jesus they’ll ever have.”
I will close with another great quote from the movie and one that’s shared from time to time as we work, “God is good all the time and all the time God is good”
Have a great Sunday … do you have any favorite quotes from the movie?
