It Doesn’t Matter Where I Come From …

I always wondered why Jesus insisted on calling Himself, “Jesus of Nazareth”, or “Jesus of Galilee”, until one day while meditating on the issue with a heavy burden in my heart, blaming almost every reason for failure on where I come from, gently, but firmly, the Holy Spirit led me to a Scripture, and I understood. The Pharisees were angry with Jesus for teaching with authority in the temple. When Nicodemus tried to defend Jesus, this was their argument: “Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their number, asked, ‘Does our law condemn anyone without first hearing him to find out what he is DOING?’ They replied, ‘Are you from GALILEE, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does NOT come out of Galilee.”   John 7:50-52 (NIV) Also, when Jesus was “calling” the first disciples, Philip found Nathanael, and this is what happened: “Philip found Nathanael and told him, ‘We have found the One Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also …

Movie Director, Screenwriter & Author, Randall Wallace’s Awesome Speech On The Christy Award’s Night

Randall Wallace is a name a lot of people in Hollywood know. He wrote Brave Heart, produced the movies, Man In the Iron Mask, Pearl Harbor etc, and more recently, Heaven Is For Real. He is also the author of several books. On the Christy Award night, offered what I’ll peg as one of the most touching, truthful, and inspiring speeches I’ve ever heard, where he tackles faith issues and the power of a story from a writer and movie director’s point of view.

One Christian Hollywood Celeb’s Testimony of Faith in God

This is what it’s all about! Been able to stand up for your faith wherever you go, no matter how high you climb. It is artists like Mark Wahlberg that encourage other people/Christians that they influence to speak up unashamed about their faith, taking a firm stand in their beliefs. Honestly, after watching this clip, I smiled. It is indeed a beautiful testimony of faith. Christians all over world, no matter who you are, it’s time to take a stand. The world is changing, and more often than before, you’ll find yourself in a position where you either have to speak up or cower away in silence. While the latter seems easier, please don’t. Jesus said He’ll be ashamed of anyone before the Father, who will be ashamed of Him here on Earth. Don’t be afraid of who you are. You are the light of the world, a salt of the Earth and a precious gift to it; the apple of God’s eye, redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. You have nothing to be …
