God's Not Dead: A Light in the Darkness

As Christians, we will face battles. However, sometimes our battle for religious, social, and political causes can consume us so much that we look overlook God's greatest command - To love one another.

God's Not Dead: A Light In the Darkness is the third "God's Not Dead" movie. The story is timely and intriguing. Had some plot twists I didn't see coming. Great performances from David A.R. White, John Corbett, and Ted McGinley. A main point this movie makes is that the world needs to see love from the church. What we do as well as don't do, needs to be driven by love for others.

I liked the struggle the lead character, "Pastor Dave", faces. The DVD version we rented had special features on it, with deleted scenes. One deleted scene that resonated with me was a short clip, where "Pastor Dave" prays to God and asks for guidance as to what do, asking God if he should give up something valuable to him.

As Christians, do we pray to God to ask Him what we should give up for God's greater glory? Even if we think and know we're on the right side about some social or political cause, is it possible that God is telling us give up that cause and be more loving towards people rather than be angry with someone or something?
