Real Duty!

I came across something I thought I should share with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It has to do with a fellow Christian.

Who is it?

Jim Caviezel.

Here's the article about him, by entitled, 'Passion of Christ' Actor:  Hollywood Turned It's Back On Me Because Of My Faith...:

The article contains a video that is shared on YouTube that is entitled, Powerful Testimony by Jim Caviezel on the Passion of the Christ.  Click on this link, to watch and/or listen to it:

This video was fabulous.  Not just what was shown.  But, also about what was said.

In case you couldn't click on the link and read the article, I copied/pasted some of the information:

“All of a sudden I stopped being one of five most popular actors in the studio, and I hadn’t done anything wrong. I just played Jesus,” Caviezel told Polish film critic Lukasz Adamski.

Plus... this was written:

Caviezel said he didn’t believe it was a coincidence that he played the role when he was 33, the same age as Jesus Christ was, and that his initials were the same.

In addition, he said something I thought was wonderful:

But Caviezel said that Hollywood’s rejection didn’t put him off his faith. Just the opposite, he said, it made it stronger.

“I’ve never forgotten that the name of Jesus is above all else,” he said. “It is also the most controversial name of all times. Love is controversial and he impersonates love. Jesus was telling the Romans about love and they killed him because of that. ‘Who is that man to tell me what kind of person I’m supposed to be?’ – they asked arrogantly. He was betrayed by his own people and abandoned by everyone. My duty was not only to show it all on the screen. My real duty is to live in accordance with the gospel every day and to give witness to the truth.”




It made me feel so very happy hearing Jim Caviezel say what he said.  After all, he truly knows truth.

Just like we read, in John 8:32, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Amen... ye shall know truth and truth shall make you free.

Just as it has done to Jim Caviezel.  And, any/all other people who have gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31).

Jesus always spoke truth.  He taught truth.  And, let us know that after his life ended, the Holy Spirit, would be with us, to help educate and lead us in many ways, including knowing truth.

Do you read God's Word, the Bible?

If not, do it, now.

If you do, you will be truly blessed.

Until next time...
