A Christian’s Take on “Do You Believe” Warning: Spoiler Alert

In my opinion “Do You Believe” is this generation’s “In His Steps”. “In His Steps” is a fiction book that tells of a pastor and his church that change a community when they take seriously the question, “What Would Jesus Do”. This movie is similar in that Matthew, a pastor, challenges his church to ask themselves, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ.”

The story really begins when Malachi, a street preacher who carries around a huge wooden cross, walks up to Matthew’s car and asks him, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ?” Matthew’s response is, “I am a pastor.” Malachi says, “That isn’t what I asked you, I asked you if you believe in the cross of Christ?” Matthew responds that he does believe in the cross of Chris and this begins an awakening in his faith. He realizes that if he really believes in the cross then it should change the way he lives. On the following Sunday he then passes out a pocket sized cross to all of his church members and challenges them to answer the question, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ”.

The movie then tells the story of 12 people somehow related to his church and how they come to the point of experiencing an awakening in their faith because they realize that to believe in the cross means giving up their pride, their comfort, and even their lives.

So is this movie simply for Christians? No, I believe everyone will enjoy this movie, matter of fact I think it is important that as Christians we get all of our unbelieving friends to go see this movie. While the movie may not be a blockbuster, it is a powerful jolt to the heart asking believer and unbeliever alike, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ and what difference has that made in your life”.

If you have seen the movie, please share this post on Facebook.

SUMMIT SEEKERS NEWS

The Children’s Department has been a very busy and exciting place to be
this winter. There are many varied activities that your children will be
enjoying. Here is a brief description of each activity. Please feel free to call
461-2563 if you have any question.

1.  Please remember that we do serve breakfast the first Sunday of each
month. We serve breakfast from 9:30 to 10:00. Please inform Janie
or one of the teachers if your child has any food allergies.

2. Our Department is really growing.  We have had a total of 65
different children come on Sunday mornings’. We are so pleased
with our growth. Keep bringing your friends. Let’s see if we can all be
there at the same time, WOW !

3.  The children are having a skating party. We will be skating at Skate-
South on Saturday, April 11th from 1-4 p. m. The skating rink is
located at 1900 E. MacArthur Rd. in Wichita. Janie will ask a parent to
sign a permission slip ahead of time. The church will pay the
admission fee, however, the children will need to bring money for
refreshments.   Everyone will be asked to sign a liability waiver.

4. We have had several big accomplishments.  Several of the children
have acquired the knowledge of learning all 66 books of the Bible!!
So proud of them!  Many of them have learned the meaning of the
Ten Commandments. We have been discussing one commandment a
week for the last 10 weeks.

5. I would like to give a special shout-out to Joel Smith, Emma Sells and
Logan Short for completing the New Christian class taught by
Faye Robertson.  Their graduation will be Sunday, March 29th during
Children’s Church.

6. I would like to encourage ALL children to be present Easter Sunday.
We will have an egg hunt with a couple prize eggs and a special craft.
We will also be presenting the Resurrection Story.
Once again, thank you so very much for allowing me the privilege of
telling your children about our awesome Lord.
Janie Swinford
Children’s Ministry Director
