Many of you may be familiar with the 1959 Hollywood classic, Ben Hur and its 11 Academy Award wins, but did you know this film has a rich history of evangelical impact in our Nation?
It was the first time a highly acclaimed, major Hollywood motion picture carried the story of Jesus as a central figure, portraying the Gospel as both a spiritual and historical truth.
Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." - John 4:13, 14
The water Jesus offers is the Holy Spirit that will fill up and flow from all those who receive Him.
Drink of His truth and it will fill you up to overflowing, so that others may drink as well.
This is one of my favorite movie scenes from Ben-Hur.
