The Passion of the Christ

21 February, 2004 2:43 PM

There continues to be a lot of talk about The Passion both in the media and in a lot of conversations I'm involved in. It is released here on Wednesday.

I've just updated my Previous Post on the Passion with 11 reviews, 10 resources (including study guides, photo/video galleries, background info, preparation exercises etc) and a collection of other articles. Hope they are helpful to some.

hey, i just want to say that the passion of the Christ made a big impact on my life, ive been a saved believing christian for about five years and have been trying to live my life for God but i do struggle. ive always seen movies about the crucifiction of Christ but they are all so" Prettied up" and when i saw the passion of the Christ i saw for the first time what it really must have been like i also realised that what Jesus went through was worse than anything that i have or ever will go through! so why dont i live a pure christian life, Jesus gave His life for me and ive given so little for Him!! so please pray for me and if you are also struggling christians pray for yourselfs! remeber that God sometimes rebukes and sometimes tests but He always corrects! stay locked in Gods blessings!

Yesterday my youngest son and I had Communion at our small Baptist Church in New Jersey. My husband had worked the night before and could not attend the worship service. We've been going through some difficult financial times and my health has been diminished by a number of illnesses. Needless to say, we are in the midst of one of life's storms. I decided to fast for two days after Communion and to pray for God's guidance, resolution of our problems (if that is his will) and peace. I decided to also watch a DVD of The Passion of the Christ. I new that some of the scenes would be violent and I knew that I would be moved. What I didn't realize until after the movie was over was that I did not turn away in horror while I watched Christ's torture. I cried throughout the movie and I was renewed by it. I felt that since Christ paid such a heavy price for our salvation, the least that I could do was watch and learn more about his sacrifice. My fasting will end tomorrow at 1:30pm, but my prayers will continue. My prayers are not limited to my family, but they include my human family. My prayers will include those families who are separated from loved ones as a result of the war. My prayers will also include a prayer for our leaders -- that they will keep their minds stayed on Jesus. Godspeed
