I read the review of Son of God last night right before I went to bed…and then I laid there thinking about how timely this movie is for us.
Not just because Easter is approaching…not just because we’ve had a long, hard winter…but just because this movie depicts Christ as a man we’d all invite into our homes for dinner…again and again and again.
Time after time.
We’d keep inviting him back (into our hearts and lives.)
Because He was inviting.
Read Max Lucado’s take on Jesus.
Jesus was touchable, approachable, reachable…
He was the kind of fellow you’d invite to watch the Rams-Giants game at your house. He’d wrestle on the floor with your kids, doze on your couch, and cook steaks on your grill. He’d laugh at your jokes and tell a few of his own. And when you spoke, he’d listen to you as if he had all the time in eternity.
And one thing’s for sure, you’d invite him back.
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. John 1:14
