We hear from Jim Caviezel as he speaks about his role in The Passion of the Christ. He is talks about when Mel Gibson called to ask him to play Jesus in the Passion of the Christ. He wasn’t trying to get this role because he didn’t know it was even going to happen. Mel Gibson wanted Jim Caviezel because he has the same initials as Jesus Christ and was at the age of 33. He went through many things physically to help this movie accurately depict the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. He went through 5 ½ months of hypothermia, had a heart attack, was struck by lightning, and had his shoulder wrenched out if his socket all during the shooting of the film. “The suffering made my performance, just as it makes our lives…there was a lot of pain and suffering before the resurrection. Your path will be no different, so embrace your cross and race towards your goal…shamelessly express your faith in public. The world needs proud warriors animated by their faith…who risk their names and reputations to take their love for Jesus into the world…It is time for our generation now to accept that call, the call of God urging us to give ourselves entirely to Him….Our whole world is entrenched in sin….indifference is the greatest sin of the 21st century, we must shake off this indifference.”This is the Creator of the universe Who loved us enough to send His Son Jesus into the world to be crucified for us. How could we not be passionate about our love for Jesus? We should not take what Jesus did for us lightly or take sin lightly. You can make Jesus the Lord of your life today! Romans 10:9 “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will saved.” We share our stories and how we made our decision for Christ at MeetMyFather; maybe God is calling you to leave something behind to give it all for Jesus. Don’t wait untiltomorrow, make that decision now! We want to hear from you about this. How are you being challenged by this message?
