Stowaway

They’re on their way to Mars, there is only enough for the 3 of them and then they find him. And in the process of finding him, a vital piece of the spacecraft breaks meaning less oxygen, and the captain gets injures.
Crazy!
I won’t give too much more away, a decision has to be made, and Zoe ends up making a huge sacrifice.

This reminded me of Jesus. We were trapped in our sin with death being inevitable. But Jesus dies in our place, takes away our sin, and gifts us eternal life. We just need to say yes to Him.

THE CROODS: A NEW AGE

Another epic, hilarious, adventure with the Croods! They need a safer place to live, which they find, but they have to live with the Bettermans… ugh. They don’t get along at first because of their differences but they learn to work together, accept each other’s differences, lean on each other, and become friends.

I love what Paul wrote about togetherness in 1 Corinthians 12:1-27 (https://bit.ly/3a5jnBL). He’s basically highlighting how we are all different, but how all those differences are actually needed, and when put together we form the body, the people, the family, the church of Christ.

How can we be more accepting of each other’s differences?

Hitch

The movie Hitch which stars Will Smith is all about two peoples’ compatibility in a relationship. He helps people to change so that they might be noticed, liked or even loved by their crush. Naturally the movie ends with people falling in love when they are just being their natural selves.

You do not need to change to be noticed, liked or loved by God, instead the opposite. He made you in His image, He sees you, knows you and loves you just as you are. We change because of our relationship with Jesus, not to enter a relationship with him.

Remember this as you read Ps 139 (http://bit.ly/2EfiANJ)

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for the new Lion King movie. It’s a real classic. There’s music, dancing, comedy, drama and romance. It’s got everything!

I especially love Mufasa and Simba’s relationship. When Simba disobeys Mufasa and goes to the elephant graveyard, Mufasa explains that being brave doesn’t mean doing dangerous things. He then forgives Simba, despite his anger, and tells him how he loves him unconditionally.

Isn’t this a beautiful picture of God’s love for us?
He sent His Son to die for us, even while we were sinners, because He loves us.
