Last night, I walked from my house to the Tryon Theater (how cool is that?) to see “Taken”. A film about the teen daughter of a retired CIA agent who is abducted, in all of the first five minutes on her holiday in Paris, by Albanian bad guys. Liam Neeson then goes on a one man war to get his daughter back. This film was so enjoyable because Liam is a normal guy. He’s no Jason Bourne. He’s no 007. He’s just a man who has a particular set of skills that will be a nightmare for the men who have taken his daughter. Of course, I see the gospel in everything. So, Jesus is pursuing us and He has wiped out the bad guys of sin, Satan, and death (the things that have “taken” my heart away from God) by HIs perfect life and His perfect sacrifice for me on the Cross.

You’ve got to listen the guys on the Filmspotting podcast review “Taken”. It is hilarious.

Thanks to Tim and Ginelle Almond and their friend Larry, who led worship at Grace Foothills this morning. As usual, I am blown away at what the Lord is up to in this little church plant in Tryon, NC. This morning, we found out that Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful” was an awesome addition to “Be Thou My Vision”. I love when modern songs take on a whole new meaning when they are sung to the Lord.

“Most”

Last summer, I spent a week in the Czech Republic with over 100 Czech college students to take a deeper look at the wonder of grace. One night, they showed this short film called “Most”. Although some of the theology is a little off (see if you can spot the bad theology), the film is still very powerful. Take a few minutes on this Good Friday to reflect on the love of God for us.
