Star Wars Episode XI: The Rise of Skywalker

#spoileralert for anyone who hasn’t seen the latest Star Wars movie! This movie is jam packed with themes of redemption and forgiveness and it’s hard not to draw similarities to the gospel. In particular, we see Kylo Ren wresting with his past decisions and being given the chance to redeem himself. The theme of turning from darkness to the light is strong, and so relevant for us as Christians.

It doesn’t matter how far you’ve strayed; God will be there to welcome you home. No sin is too great for God to forgive. Just ask Him.

Christmas Inheritance

It doesn’t really matter which Christmas movie I talk about because they all seem to have a similar story: girl goes back to hometown and falls in love with the unlikely inn keeper instead of the rich businessman. Or some version of that.

I love Christmas movies, but they’re predictable. And it got me thinking: do we see our walk with God the same way? Has the Bible become stale and predictable to you? If so, ask God to open your eyes to the excitement and glory of it all.

Don’t let the gospel become a dull story – it’s alive and active!

Knives Out

In the movie ‘Knives Out,’ one of the main characters gets violently sick if she tells a lie. Once the investigator figures this out, it becomes pretty easy for him to begin to solve the crime. Regardless of the lies and tricks in the plot, the truth eventually comes out.

‘The Truth’ is one way Jesus defines himself:

I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

We know how important it is to speak the truth, but do we always do that?

What keeps you from sometimes being truthful? Take it to God.
