John Christensen is a pastor of a church in a small town. Over time John has begun to desire the things of this world. His wife Sarah tries to motivate John back to the spiritual passion with little success.
Through a series of events, John has a revealing of God’s desire but discovers that most of his congregation is living worldly lives. John realizes he is partly to blame.
John begins to speak from the scripture but is resisted by Bill Johnson, the church board, and the congregation.
Under pressure from the church, and especially Bill Johnson, John perseveres. He risks everything, his friends, family, and church, to bring himself and the church back to God.
This film is a reality check for the Laodicean Church…all of us professed Christians in today’s day and age. Throughout most of this film…this is what NOT to do, how not to please God.
There is a lot of good content that gives you a lot to think about. Then there is a change and it reminds me of II Chronicles 7:14 – if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and prayer, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Once this happens, there is a change and persecution comes as a result…not from the world, but from the church, which is VERY realistic.
There is one faithful Christian, who is pictured above, throughout this entire film. She was never discouraged by what she saw others do, she just prayed and encouraged others. Don’t miss the message of this film, it’s an awakening for the church. Are we really following God or ourselves? Is Jesus pleased with us or will He spit us out of His mouth for being lukewarm.
