Title: Grace of God (A Story of Easter Traditions)
Publisher: Phase 4 Films
My Rating: 5 stars
The beginning of the film, which introduces the movie, was very unique. I have never seen such graphics before used to show a portion of the Old Testament history that tells of God and the Israelites. There are movies made that inspire or perhaps seem unrealistic; however, this movie portrays the humanity of the Body of Christ.
A single mother makes a choice she believes will help her adult daughter whose marriage is in trouble. Her motive for helping seemed just; however, her method for “fixing” or helping her daughter in trouble turned out differently in ways she didn’t foresee. Along with that the audience will begin to understand that people in the churches aren’t hypocrites or holier than anyone else; they are people aware of their need for Him.
As I viewed the movie, it kept reminding me that if we look horizontally to fix or help with troubles in life those methods will always fail. Each individual can choose to look to the Lord, confess sin and be forgiven at any moment of any day. The private investigator in the movie is at first very critical of people, but in time he begins to understand that the people who go to services are people with real needs and who at times make wrong choices.
Every day can be an Easter Day for those who are willing to confess their sins, submit to the Lord and live each day in faith. The movie shows how love covers a multitude of sins and how Christians can be held accountable and forgiven. Perhaps the most moving point of all in the film was when someone who didn’t believe in Him saw a Christian fail, and then when that person confessed and was restored, the audience sees what could be a very powerful witness to who God is and what He desires for people.
