Pay Much Closer Attention

After the Passion of the Christ

This Wednesday a movie will begin showing in theaters that has received unprecedented coverage and criticism. Many will gather to see The Passion of the Christ. Some think this movie will draw many to trust in Christ. Some think the film is religious fanaticism. Unfortunately many will be moved by it but will not be moved by the movie to accept Christ. There will be those who could care less but will see the movie because of all the media attention. There will be many, after seeing the film who will still be unaware of their need for the salvation that Christ offers. There will be many who are unmoved by the gospel presentation and the horrible death of Jesus Christ.

But there will be those who are moved to seek the truth. For those who will be seeking the truth we should be prepared to share the truth. We should be praying for those who will see this movie that they will be drawn to the truth and that their hearts will be softened to the true Gospel. We should pray that Satan’s attempts to undermine the truth of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection and the precious gift of salvation available because of His sacrifice will fail. Jesus came to take our place for our sins and the sins of everyone who will see the Passion of the Christ.

Will this movie change the world for Christ? I don’t think so. But I do believe this will be an opportunity for you to share the truth with your friend or neighbor after they’ve seen it. And after the excitement over this wonderful new opportunity has passed we must continue to preach and teach and share the true gospel message to a lost and dying world.

  1. Hi well me personally after seeing the movie it really impacted me and made me want to share the gospel to unbelievers and i feel it will do that for alot of people but your right it wont for everyone but this is all recorded in the bible and these surley must be the last days cause it says in the last days Jesus wont return until the gospel has been preached to the whole world and that is exactly what this movie is doing telling the whole world who Jesus is and what He had to do for us. I do believe that people after seeing this movie alot of them will want to follow Jesus and know him more and i beleive this movie will be around forever cause i know that churches will buy the movie when it comes out and will be showing it to nonbelievers so this movie wont die out like alot of blockbusters do and plus Mel would be smart to put it in the theaters and show it every Easter and christmas so trust me this movie wont disappear and be forgotten.

  2. Hi. Well, I haven’t seen the movie because I’m under 18, but I have seen the trailer from cinemas, and I’m telling you-TEARS. Tears is the main word for it. And I’m telling you-even if you only watch the trailer-you get TEARS. Tears stream down your face. I do think that for some reason this movie puts us to believe in Christ-which is quite a good thing I suppose. Please people uder 18-don’t watch it. You’ll be finding yourself all red and teary in the face afterwards.
