Revelation 3:16 (NKJV)—“So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
This excellent movie is an inspiring story of faith, forgiveness, redemption, and reconciliation. The message portrays that no matter where you are in life, God can turn your life around when you surrender and accept Jesus Christ as Lord of your life. It reminds us to never give up; and let God use you to spread the message of His loving salvation to all. No one knows how much longer they have left to choose salvation and get off the road of sin which leads to destruction.
Luke Rogers (played by Jeremy Jones) starts out on the right path, but his world comes crashing down when his father (John Schneider) walks out on their family when he was young. I think this movie is realistic; this is an example of what could happen. As a young man, Luke keeps thinking about how his father left him. He stays out of touch with him for years. When he loses his job in the factory he starts working as a bartender and the temptations of life start taking control of his life. His girlfriend (Nicole Gale Anderson) is a believer and works at a shelter. Luke drifts away from her as the bar scene starts taking over. They are not leading a Christian life because they are living together. The bar owner, Luke’s friend, doesn’t believe in God and doesn’t want anything to do with Him. He persuades Luke to be with him and some female customers. He makes the wrong choice for a while.
Their Christian neighbor, Thomas, (Bill Cobbs) prays with him about forgiveness. This movie shows what evil choices can do to a person. There are some cruel people and bad decisions made. I try to look for the good in things. God does turn some of the bad situations into good at the end. It is worth watching to see the turn around. People do turn to Christ in the midst of turmoil. The empty lifestyle never wins. This movie shows how prayer does work.
Matthew 5:44-45 (NKJV)—“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.”
