The children waited patiently as each day passed, wanting to know when we were going to go.  Finally the time came.  We went to the movies and watched Disney’s Frozen.  It was a great movie and I can hardly wait to watch it again!  Have you seen it yet?

Now, I’m not going to give it away, not totally, but the truth tucked in that movie struck me in the van on the way home and my kiddos got an ear full and hopefully a heart full.

You see, the tragedy in the movie is that the oldest sister has this great power and instead of telling others, she keeps it a secret. Why? Because she doesn’t know how to use it properly.

Christians can be like this.  They have this great power that they don’t know what to do with.  Do you know what I’m talking about?

I’m talking about the Holy Spirit.

At the time when Jesus was baptized by John at the Jordan River, the Holy Spirit descended like a dove upon him…he raised people from the dead, healed the sick, cast out demons, fed thousands of people, he changed the world, and he still does.  How?  Through his Holy Spirit.  When he ascended into heaven he told the disciples to not leave Jerusalem but wait there.  They did and they were filled with the Holy Spirit. Luke 11:13 reads, “If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Let that sink in.

Here’s where I give away the movie. Earlier the heroine (aka the younger sister) is told that only an act of love can melt a frozen heart.  Hers is beginning to freeze. She thought she knew how to prevent this from happening but instead of taking that path, she chose another.  She sacrificed her own life to safe her sister.  The result?  She died by turning into ice, or so one is led to believe…

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13

The act of love was completed.  Our heroine comes to life and there live’s are changed forever.  The sister with the power is no longer in darkness of fear because of the great love her sister has proven.  She sees and understands that love melts a frozen heart.  Now her powers are used for the spreading of joy to others and because it’s no longer a secret, she can truly begin to live.

Oh, how wonderful.  Look at what love does.  Christians have the ability to save lives through the power of acts of love.  Selfless love that puts the other first.  It can melt even the hardest of hearts. It can change lives forever, including yours. Don’t be afraid of the gift you have.  Let all the world see, let it shine.

Oh, you want to know what else?  Check out klove’s encouraging word posted for the day we watched the movie…

Klove’s encouraging word from Saturday 11/30/2013

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

~ Ephesians 2:10, NLT | View in context |

A coincidence?  I think not. Now for you…

How has your life been impacted by the love of another? 

Also, please share your thoughts on the movie. There are other truths tucked in there…what did you discover?
