Have you ever thought about what it would have been like to be with Jesus when He was here on earth? To be with Him daily, hearing Him speak, seeing His works, sitting with Him daily?
To see Him die?
There is a movie I once watched called The Seventh Sign. All through the movie, the main character encounters a man, supposedly Jesus, who is warning her the end of the world is coming. She is pregnant and wants her baby to live so badly. There is a scene near the end where she is asked if she’d give her life for her son. When you watch it, you can see the parallel to Jesus.
I remember coming out of that movie weeping. What would I have done? What would I do now?
Our world is changing. And not for the better. I believe there will be a time when all over the world, even in the U.S., we will be killed when we stand up for Jesus.
If it comes to it, would we give our life for Him? Like the character in the movie, would we gladly and emphatically say, “YES! Yes, I will!”
