It’s A Wonderful Life!

“It’s a Wonderful Life” has got to be one of the all time best movies ever made! It’s one of those movies that I can watch over and over again… and no matter how many times I have seen it, it always catches my attention if I catch it on while flipping channels. You remember the movie. Jimmy Stewart plays George Bailey who gets down and out about his life not meaning anything. He buys into the lie that he is worth more dead than alive… until he meets a messenger of God in the form of Clarence, an angel “2nd class.” Clarence shows him a glimpse of what life would have been like if he had never lived… and George sees exactly what kind of difference his life has made in the lives of others. He learns that it really is a “wonderful life.”

As Christians we truly enjoy a “wonderful life” because of the blessings to be found in Christ. What if Jesus had never lived? Where would we be, then? Oh, he has brought us SO much! It is this wonderful life that we will begin to explore this Sunday as we begin a new mini-series of lessons entitled “It’s a Wonderful Life!” We’ll be sharing and discussing the blessings that are ours through Christ. Jesus has come to bring abundant life (cf. John 10:10)… and the blessings of peace, joy, love, hope and new life are ours in Christ! I’m particularly interested in hearing YOUR stories. How has your faith in Christ brought you peace? Please, leave your thoughts and comments and let’s share these blessings together.

  1. Never seen it, but… it is an interesting concept… what impact has my life had?

    I doubt it has been great, but you never know…
