We all have dreams. We should all strive toward achieving dreams that are good, and we should inspire others to do the same. Sometimes however, we lose our way, looking to places like Hollywood for guidance or superstars as role models. We become lost in pop culture or Hollywood philosophies, and our dreams become skewed and diverted.
When striving toward our dreams, let’s not get lost in the superficial. Let’s not be tempted. Let’s not lose our way. Instead, let’s be reminded of the truth behind our dreams, the reason we’re here, and the direction in which we’re all going.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
The following video was created using clips from the movie, The Passion of the Christ. The music is by Brad Paisley and Sara Evans.
**NOTE: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES DEPICTING THE CRUCIFIXION OF CHRIST. PLEASE TALK TO A PARENT FIRST IF YOU FEEL THIS MAY BE INAPPROPRIATE FOR YOU.
Look to it in times of joy and pain, when you feel lost, when you feel lonely, and whenever you question God’s love for you. When I watch this video, I am in awe of God’s love for us. I’m reminded of the sacrifice that He made by giving His only son. For our sake Jesus was crucified, suffered and died.
In everything you say and in everything you do, never forget The Passion, and always strive to be worthy of this sacrifice. It’s God’s proof that He loves you.
God bless you.
