A, I suppose best described as a secular movie with GOD tones made me cry and say thank You to Father this afternoon.
Neither of the Names by which we know our Triune GOD were spoken; He was only referred to as ‘They’. Not a theologically sound movie but certainly a feel-good movie. Not a movie to teach us the doctrine of salvation by grace; not a movie to teach us that without the saving work of Jesus Christ perfected in each of us individually the soul collector who comes when we die will not be benevolent. Truth is not every soul leaving planet earth will be escorted by a Collector who is filled with love and kindness. But I’m off my point.
My tears came and I thanked Father for making me human. I have been known to lament that I am human. To lament my flaws and frailties; to lament that I am not perfect; lament that I have feet of clay. However, from the perspective of the movie, I could praise and thank God for loving me so much that He would create me human.
Oh, how He loves us! Flawed, frail, rebellious, proud, arrogant, foolish, on and on goes the list. BUT God loves humans! We are His most treasured, most beloved, most valued creation of all. I think I shall cease to lament that I am human and rather praise that I am a beloved human, saved by the grace of Almighty God; saved to have fellowship with Him forever. Ahh! how blessed to be human!
Hebrews 2:15-17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.
16 For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham.
17 Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
The movie? Want the name? 🙂 Soul Collector. I might watch it again. I like happy tears!!
Prayer is breathing to a Christian.
JESUS LOVES YOU! Kathie
