Do you have that friend who refuses to believe in God for lack of evidence?

American journalist, Lee Strobel, made it his mission to disprove the existence of God after seeing his wife take “a blind leap of faith into religion” and became a Christian. It led him to discover that the accounts of Jesus’ death and resurrection are historically reliable. It led him to becoming a Christian himself.

The Case for Christ, based on the New York Times best-selling book, is a movie which shows that the Christian faith is real. When you watch it, why not invite some of your friends who are curious about the Christian faith?

With Easter just behind us, it was seen by many as only eating yummy chocolate eggs and fresh hot cross buns. But is this really the heart of it?

Risen is a different take on the death and resurrection of Jesus. It is told from the perspective of an agnostic Roman centurion, Clavius, who watched Jesus’ crucifixion, yet can’t understand what happened to His body three days after it was laid in the tomb. As he goes in search of the disciples to find out the truth, he discovers that which changes his life forever: the resurrected Christ.

There are days where it can feel like the end of the world. And on those days, you should.break out into song!

Watchhttp://bit.ly/2Dm281G

That’s right we all need elevator moments. Moments to pause amidst all the crazy stuff going on in our day (like fighting Shredder) and shift our focus by singing a song of praise (you can make it a rap if you want!).

Paul and Silas do it whilst in prison and look what happens.
Read Acts 16:25-26 here:http://bit.ly/2DfORYi

Praise is like your ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ card. Whatever is getting you down will loosen its grip when you sing praise to God.

Because it’s the week of Valentine let’s think Romance in the movies.

How about this scene – http://bit.ly/2Dlokc7

Not the most romantic right but still very sincere. You have to applaud Amy for making herself vulnerable by singing a solo and going to such great lengths to express her love for Bumper.

We don’t often (if ever) view the cross as ‘romantic’, however it is the place God made himself most vulnerable, going to the extreme length of giving up his life just for us. In a crazy way it ‘ticks’ the romance box.

Reflect on the kind of love God has for you by reading Romans 5:8 here – http://bit.ly/2Dim3hP
