Netflix is amazing. You can watch (and binge watch) tons of stuff. You can even download and watch things offline. I love it. But I guess that’s not the point of this post, so let’s get to the really good stuff.
I’m currently on vacation, and the reason that Netflix is even mentioned in this post is because I used it to download a great movie: The Case For Christ. I love watching things that have meaning behind them, that have a nonfictional aspect to them, and especially ones that involve Christianity. That’s one reason why I’ve never watched a Marvel movie in my life. The whole superhero thing doesn’t mean anything in real life (although I did give in and watch Star Wars).
I loved The Case For Christ. It was really good, and I would encourage every Christian (especially those who are struggling) to watch it. It’s based on a true story, and it’s about an atheist whose wife accepts Christ. He doesn’t approve of her decision, so he sets out to prove her wrong and that God doesn’t exist.
I’ve always found that faith comes easy for me. I’ve never questioned my faith, nor do I think I ever will. I don’t know how else to say it; it’s just easy. Lee, the main character in the movie, is all about facts and having evidence. The problem is, he can’t prove that Christ ever existed or that He ever died. Everything he discovers points to Christ’s existence and death, but nothing proves it. He has a hard time filling in the blanks with faith.
I’m at the age now where I’m seeing more and more non-Christian stuff. I’m no longer 100% shielded from everything. I always wondered how anybody could not believe, because the truth was always so obvious to me. It just didn’t make sense.
After watching that movie, I completely understand where atheists are coming from. There really isn’t any proof. There’s evidence, but no proof. My eyes have been opened to how people think, and why accepting Christ can be hard for some people.
I said it before and I will say it again: I really enjoyed the movie. I’ve been wondering for a while now what God wants me to do with my life. I’ve never wanted to be a missionary, but over the past year I’ve developed a passion for reaching the lost. I’m still the incredibly shy girl who hangs out in the corner and who could never speak well in public, but I’m starting to wonder: What is it that God wants me to do? How is it that God wants me to reach the lost? That passion for spreading the gospel is the reason I re-purposed this blog. Writing is a way I can express myself. I don’t have to have words to say right away, as with impromptu conversation. My writing doesn’t contain a profusion of um’s, uh’s, and well’s. My heart doesn’t race whenever I write, as it does when I talk to people.
I don’t yet know what God has in store for me, but I know it’s going to be good. The movie really inspired me and kindled the Jesus fire inside me, and that’s why I wrote this post. So go watch the movie and see why I enjoyed it so much for yourself. I can almost guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
