It’s March, it’s Movie Madness, and I just couldn’t resist sliding this little treasure into the blog. Though I haven’t seen this movie (it hasn’t even been released yet), the trailer evokes tears nearly every time I watch it. Therefore, I’d like to share how I see Christ in this movie trailer. If you haven’t watched it yet, please do.
I remember watching Tarzan on TV and going around the house pretending to swing on vines and cry out the signature call. (Though it is a flawless rendition in my head, I can’t quite get it to come out right.) I’ve seen most of the film adaptations of the character and story, and I was excited to see this trailer. Though it looks like good old Tarzan and Jane, there is a line in the trailer that slays me. I tear up just thinking about it. I don’t know why it touches me so, but it does. When Jane tells the bad dude about her husband coming to save her, I about lose it.
She says, “A normal man can do the impossible to save the woman he loves; my husband is no normal man.”
Can you imagine the Church telling the enemy, “My Husband is no normal man”?
Saints! Church! Brothers and sisters! Our Husband is no normal man! Talk about One who did the impossible to save the Woman He loves. The enemy never stood a chance. It’s over. The Bride is saved. Our Husband has rescued us!
That little line – that truth – stood out so big to me, that I just had to share. As the Bride of Christ, we have no normal man for our Husband. If a normal man can do the impossible to save the woman he loves, how much more the impossible did Christ do? Unfathomable.
That’s it. Enjoy your Sunday. And remember, the Bride’s Husband is no normal man.
