Introduction

Sometimes we catch a glimpse of heaven on earth or as Jesus called it the “Kingdom of God” – whether a beautiful sunset, a heroic deed, a selfless act of servitude, the joy in your child’s face as he runs to meet you after work, a photograph that touches the heart, or even an inspirational movie scene.  Life is worth living because of these moments.  I believe God speaks to us through these moments.  He shows us a very small scene of what the new Heavens and the new Earth will be like when he returns. What we get glimpses of now will be consummated in its entirety at that future moment in time.

I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve been caught up in an artistically excellent movie scene and found God motivating me to do more with my life.  I simply could sense him prodding me to do something else – something bigger – something inescapable.  I didn’t really know what that “something” was, but I knew there was a “something” and I knew it would transform me and the world around me if I gave into it for Him.

The following movie clips spurred on some of those special inspirational moments for me.  I hope they do the same for you…
