#PacificRim

In the Pacific Rim movie series, human controlled robots (called Jaegers) try to fight hideous giant monsters (called Kaiju) that are bent on destroying planet Earth. The Jaegers are no match for the Kaiju. Then a scientist connects his brain with that of a Kaiju and VICTORY. Yay! – until part 2 (Uprising). That connection with evil backfires and leads to even greater destruction Eish Wena!

Don’t be suckered into the trap of evil. The devil comes only to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10 – https://bit.ly/2vAvQrJ). Abstain from every form of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22 – https://bit.ly/2W2BguG) no matter how juicy or innocent it appears to be. Resist him!

#HaveYouSeen

Have you seen Wonder Woman 1984 or Marvel’s Black Widow or James Bond’s No Time to Die or Top Gun: Maverick or F9 (the 9th edition in the Fast/Furious franchise)? No? Maybe because the premiers of these movies are delayed due to Covid-19. But before you know it, the red carpet will roll out and the long wait will be worth it.

Another long awaited not-to-be-missed global razzmatazz event is the return of our Saviour – Yay!

Jesus said “Yes, I am coming soon” [and we reply] “Amen. Come Lord Jesus”. (Revelation 22:12 – https://bit.ly/2ObtsCU). Will your name be written in the credits?

Tangled

Rapunzel was locked away in a tower all her life, only dreaming of freedom and what it’s like. The truth is that she didn’t even know that she was in captivity; she thought that this was normal and all there was to her life.

Many of us find ourselves in places of captivity – in our minds. These can be bad thoughts about ourselves, low self-esteem, feeling trapped by our sin, negative perspectives on life etc. These prevent us from being our best, and knowing true freedom. freedom through, and in Christ.

There is a way out: ask God to help you be free!

John 8:36 (https://bit.ly/2zM4SV5)

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie won a golden ticket to explore the chocolate factory. Out of all the kids who were part of this, Charlie was the most grateful, and consistently chose to do the right thing – regardless of the circumstances!

This movie shows how integrity, obedience, honesty and gratitude really are great qualities to have. It’s not always easy to do the right thing, but it pays off.

The Bible also speaks of integrity and honesty:
Psalm 41:11-12 (https://bit.ly/3aS8a62)
“You will take good care of me because I’ve been honest. You will let me be with you forever”.

Never stop working at having integrity.
