When a lot of people think about “Christian movies” they picture another category of movies. But I see something so much deeper, especially when they are based on true stories.
These films are preserved testimonies of God’s handiwork. They are memorials to what God has done in people’s lives.
When Jen and I first began working to spread the word about true Christian movies, we were strongly moved by this Scripture which seems to put everything into focus:
We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation
about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about His power and His mighty wonders.
~ Psalm 78:4 (NLT)
Every time you or I watch or share a film that is based on a true story, I believe we are doing this Verse. And this is one of the things that gives me strength and vision.
A sermon is a great way to share the Gospel, a book has tremendous teaching potential, but a film can be the next best thing to someone standing up and testifying about what God did in their own life.
Not every film is based on a true story, but even fictional ones can testify to God’s character, traits, and heart. You see, Christian movies are a ministry in and of themselves.
These films can tell about what God has done, who He is, how we can grow to be more like Him. Just sharing them can change lives. We can also use them to create teachable moments and start spiritual conversations.
These are wonderful tools that we can use for the Kingdom of God.
I encourage you today; use every tool that is available to you for God’s glory.
