Introduction: To be Christian means to be a follower of Jesus Christ; to be “Christ-like”; to act as Jesus Christ would act. Jesus is referred to as God’s “holy servant” (Acts 4:27). If we define holy as described in Colossians 3:12-14, then it is easy to see that Jesus was a holy person. He was compassionate (Luke 15:30; Matthew 9:36). Jesus was kind, patient and forgiving (story of adulterous woman in John 8:3-11). He was humble (Matthew 11:29) and meek (2 Corinthians 10:1). But mostly, Jesus always chose love (Ephesians 5:2; Mark 10:21). In fact, all the world’s religious traditions celebrate the supreme importance of six spiritual practices, which are, compassion, forgiveness, hope, kindness, love (as in agape), and conversion (transformation). All of these spiritual practices were illustrated in this movie.
Assignment: For each of the six spiritual practices listed above, describe one scene from the movie that demonstrates that practice. Be as specific as you can.
