God's Not Dead

We just watched "God's Not Dead II" tonight and I thought it was an excellent movie. I'll be posting some quotes from both the first and second movies over the next week or two, just in case you didn't see them.

Praise to God for a Living Hope

1 Peter 1:3-5 (NIV)

Praise to God for a Living Hope
Praise be to the God and Father of our 
Lord Jesus Christ! 
In His great mercy He has given us 
new birth into a living hope through the 
resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. 
This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 
who through faith are shielded by God’s power 
until the coming of the salvation that is ready 
to be revealed in the last time.

John's Vision of Christ Revelation 1:17-18

Revelation 1:17-18 John's Vision of Christ

When I saw Him, 
I fell at His feet as though dead. 
Then He placed His right hand on me and said: 
"Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 
I am the Living One; 
I was dead, and now look, 
I am alive for ever and ever! 
And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

Daily Bible Verse Daniel 7:13-14

Daniel 7:13-14 (NIV) Daniel's Dream

“In my vision at night I looked, 
and there before me was One like a Son of Man, 
coming with the clouds of heaven. 
He approached the Ancient of Days 
and was led into His presence. 
He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; 
all nations and peoples of every language 
worshiped Him. 
His dominion is an everlasting dominion 
that will not pass away, 
and His kingdom is one that will never be destroyed."

Challenge: The Great Commission

Daily Bible Verse Matthew 28:16-20 (NIV)

The Great Commission
Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, 
to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 
When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; 
but some doubted.
Then Jesus came to them and said, 
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, 
baptizing them in the name of the 
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 
and teaching them to obey 
everything I have commanded you. 
And surely I am with you always, 
to the very end of the age.”

The Great Commission wasn't only for the eleven disciples; it is given to all of us. We are all tasked to fulfill these duties. Think about ways that you can spread the word of God. We have the ability to change the world, even if it's one soul at a time. See also, The Starfish Story.
