A PASSION FOR THE CHRIST

I sat down and watched this video this week. What a great reminder of just how much God loves us. Hope everyone has a great Easter.

Words I thought described this video were words like: powerful, touching and love. What “single” words can you think of to describe it?

    Is it just me, or does the use of video help you connect with this more than just reading the word? I mean, I can read of his betrayal, his flogging and crucifixion and realize how horrible it must have been and be appreciative of it. But, when I watch it unfold before my very eyes I can’t help but to connect with it.

    Thanks for the reminder, Trey.

    Indescribable

    haunting-
    humbling-

  4. Liz Moore says:

    heartbreaking

    because I am so…

    unworthy

  5. k2 says:

    numbing …
    tearful …
    thankful …
    unworthiness …
    selfishness (mine) …
    giving …
    thankful (can’t say it enough) …
    painful …

    on a side note, did any of you that watched the whole movie notice how judas’ lips deteriorated after the kiss? it took me watching it the second time to notice it. what a costly kiss …

    Thanks for posting this even though it was hard to watch. We went to see the movie when it was out but I didn’t know if I could ever watch it again. I keep thinking I need to though.

    I don’t know if there is one word that would sum it all up besides love.

    Thanks Trey.

  7. TREY MORGAN says:

    I have to agree totally with the words above…

    humbling
    unworthy
    blessed

    Chris … I agree totally. Video and pictures are SO amazing in what they teach and how they bring things to life.

    I also have a hard time watching this. I’m glad it bothers me.

    We are a society of visual learners–that movie had a huge impact on most of those who saw it. I don’t take communion the same as I did before the movie because now I can see His blood being shed for me, I can see Him being flogged and beaten and spit upon for me, I can see His mother weeping and I can only imagine what it had to be like. All of the years this story was sugarcoated for us made it easier for us to take the Sacrifice for granted.

    Trey,
    I dont know if you ever had Gerald Paden’s Sacrificial System class. But he went to the story of the crucifixion and asked us to imagine ourselves being there and then asked what we do. He then went on to say the phrase, “He saved others but He can’t save Himself” was so true because it was only in the sacrifice that we could possibly be saved—his point was knowing what we know now, we would have to stand in the crowd and shout along with the others, “Crucify Him”–it was both powerful and life changing.

    Sorry this was so long–I have been so busy, I forgot how much I love to e-talk to yall.
    Love

    Neva,

    I always love it when you write. You can never write too long. You are right … we are visual learners.

    I did have Gerald’s Sac class. It was my most favorite class of all at SIBI. It opened up so much of the Bible to me.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    trey,

    i forgot to mention that you helped bring me to tears while at the workplace. that is a hard clip to watch … but a necessary one for this week.

    thanks!

  11. TREY MORGAN says:

    I hear you k2. I think it’s always good to be reminded.

    Hey guys … I’m in Dallas doing LTC (Leadership Training for Christ) this weekend with the youth. Have you ever heard of LTC?

  12. ken says:

    Guilty! I’m guilty of that beating

  13. TREY MORGAN says:

    Me too, Ken. Me too.

  14. Wiley says:

    Hi Trey,

    Thanks for the time you put into your blog and linking to the video.
    It’s an awesome short video to watch and listen to. We have become a church of visual learners (imagine that!). Even without the music, that video should be something we all watch from time to time. However, the music really made it awesome and moving.

    We will have a group at LTC also.

  15. TREY MORGAN says:

    Wiley… thanks for sharing your thoughts. I think it was a great reminder for me too.

    We had a great time in Dallas at LTC with the kids. We took 94 from Childress. We got in about midnight … got to get in bed.

    Blessings

    For some reason I’m having trouble commenting, so I’m going to try again and hope that I haven’t commented multiple times.

    Here is my question:
    Why didn’t Mary Magdalene or the disciples immediately recognize Jesus upon his resurrection?

  17. Mommysmart says:

    Hey Trey,

    It was goo to see you all in Dallas on Saturday. I can’t believe that you took 94! That is a huge group. We enjoyed seeing everyone. Hope you got some sleep!

  18. TREY MORGAN says:

    Hey NB … sorry things haven’t been working. Looks like you have it working now. As for the question. It’s a great question. One that now one is quite sure of. What we do know is that Jesus had hidden his true identity for a short period of time before revealing himself.

  19. TREY MORGAN says:

    Monica … no sleep yet, but it’s coming. Wasn’t it amazing? I thought 70 was a bunch last year!

  20. Dane says:

    Trey,
    I do not know just one word that would sum up the way I felt watching the clip. My heart fell. Everything inside me; my inner most being ached with the sudden realization of being 100% unconditionally inadequate & undeserving. Yet at the same time I saw & felt the unconditional love God has for me. …How much better of a Father is he to me than I ever could be to my own? As all this boiled inside me, my soul screamed for God in such a way I can’t explain. This passage rang more true today than ever before: Romans 8:26 “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.”

    Thanks, Dane
