Evan Almighty

A couple of weeks ago I watched the film Evan Almighty again. A couple of things stood out to me.

Those moments throughout that suggest that God has a sense of humour are spot on. Christianity’s a relationship with a perfect Person, so it makes sense that he’s a funny guy.

Evan knew that God had spoken to him, but it still needed faith. Christianity isn’t blind faith in spite of the overwhelming evidence that disproves it, we Christians know that what we believe is true!

The conversation about God giving opportunities rather than fuzzy feelings is genius. If you ask God for patience does he magically make you patient, or give you opportunities to become more patient?

Of course Evan was laughed at, he looked and sounded like a madman! There’s no wonder that the prophets in the Old Testament, Jesus’ disciples and the early church, and Christians ever since have been ridiculed for what they believe, because of course it flies in the face of what the world believes! Sex only for marriage? How foolish!

It’s all about God’s grace. Every single individual in the movie has the chance to pause for a moment and think, ‘Perhaps Evan’s story is true,’ but no-one did. Evan’s desperate cries to the people who would be drowned to ‘get on the ark!’ because of one man’s sin is emotional, but the cry from Acts 4:12 is exactly the same: ‘there is salvation in no-one else!’ To actively choose to ignore that warning and head into eternity without Jesus as Saviour is to drink judgment upon oneself when the offer of a free ride is available.
