God Speaks To Me In The Movies (Part 1 - Shooter))

I watched SHOOTER at the movies and thought I’d share a thought from the movie. Don’t worry I won’t ruin it for those who haven’t seen the movie by telling you what it was all about… except to say that it was a beauty!

Todays thought comes from a line in the movie: (the senator says it for those of you who want to watch out for it)

“There is always a man who thinks that he can actually make a difference in the world, and the only way to change his mind is to put a bullet in it.”

I got to thinking… how true this was. Look at anyone who has caught a serious vision and revelation of their mission from God: Martin Luther King Jnr… Nelson Mandela… Mother Theresa… JFK… Matthew Barnett… Brian Houston…

All these people are doing or have done amazing things… they have lived out their dreams…

Its easy for us to see their success and not realize what it took for them to get where they are. Martin Luther King Jnr received threatening phone calls daily… bricks thrown through their home window…

Mother Theresa left her order and on her own went down to India and began her ministry to the poor.

Every single one of these great people paid a heavy price… some even with their life.


How real is your call and mission from God?

What price are you willing to pay to see your God given mission fulfilled?

What are you doing today to see your God given mission become a reality?

What price have you paid thus far?

I'd love to hear your thoughts : )
