Tonight my family and I were finally able to watch the movie, God’s Not Dead. We enjoyed it and were reminded that we should always be prepared to give an answer as to why we believe in God. 1 Peter 3:15 says; But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. We saw this happen in the movie as the young freshmen played by Shane Harper, followed the still small voice inside and gently, with respect, presented the case for God’s existence.
What does this have to do with children and kidsmin? I think it has much to do with it because our children are on the front lines in their schools, neighborhoods, families and churches with those that don’t believe in God or are just not sure . Yes, even the young lady in the movie that was Josh’s girlfriend of 7 years felt strongly enough to break off the relationship. Josh took a stand for God and lost his girlfriend. What are we willing to give up for God?
My son made the statement that he hoped we wouldn’t have to experience such things as people coming against us because of our faith in Christ. I reminded him that folks are being persecuted now around the world because of Christianity. We are in a battle for truth and we must equip this next generation to fight the good fight and to finish the race. My prayer is that I myself will stand strong and that I might train my children and many others that God is NOT Dead but He is surely alive and living on the inside!
