Just like it says in Ephesians 4:32, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” If the Lord can forgive me for all of the bad things that I’ve done in my life, than I’m sure I can use His strength to forgive someone else. It might not be easy and it might not happen fast, but if you let the Lord work through you, it will allow you to move on. One of the guys of the movie I heard in one of the “Making of the Movie” videos said that a lot of the times, being upset and not forgiving someone is like you drinking the poison and then watching them to see when they die. One of those lines that doesn’t make sense, but then makes perfect sense, if you’ve been there.
We’re only on this earth for a certain amount of time. Let’s use that time to be a Champion for Christ and let everyone know that through His love, we can conquer anything. Let’s have the words of 2 Timothy 4:7 when we come to that checkered flag of life….”I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
I definitely recommend this movie to anyone. There are different walks of life, different ages and a lot of trials that are dealt with. It’s a great one to talk about with the family and see how they feel about certain things. You can even go to their website and sign up to receive the 40 Days of Forgiveness daily devotional from now until the release of the new movie CHAMPION. You will receive a daily devotion by email as well as information about the movie. Click the picture below to find out more:
About the Champion Movie:
In the supercharged world of dirt track racing, a single mistake causes the lives of two men to change forever. One must fight for his family, the other must fight to forgive.
Dirt track racer Sean Weathers was at the top of his game…an unstoppable career, scores of fans, and an adoring daughter. When a rivalry with another racer turns personal, the ego that propelled him to success causes a tragedy, sending his life into a tailspin.
Jack Reed was attempting to make up for past mistakes. He had prospered as a businessman but failed as a family man. In a sudden turn of events, his chances for reconciliation are ripped from his grasp.
Sean and Jack’s lives collide, and an unexpected bond forms between them. Working through a painful journey of healing together, they each learn about second chances and the true freedom only forgiveness can offer.
