How does one even begin to extol the message of the glorious gospel? How do we even begin to comprehend the good news that has been given to us? How can we fully grasp the meaning of what God did for mankind? Sometimes I can’t. I believe it with all my heart but I do not understand it.
The Bible says, “greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” (John 15:13). That I get. I can truly understand giving your life for those you love. I would not hesitate to give my life for one of my children or my family. I would like to think that I would even give my life for my friends. But God did not just give His life for His friends. He gave His Son to the world. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, (John 3:16a).
Our Creator made us in His image, perfect and righteous. Yet, by one man sin entered the world and death came by sin, (Romans 5:12). We were ungodly, unrighteous, and enemies of God, deserving hell eternal. But God sent His beloved Son that, “whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” (John 3:16b).
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us,” (Romans 5:6-8).
Can you imagine sacrificing your only son, who you cherish and love, for those who do not care? Can you imagine allowing your child to die at the hands of the wicked? Can you imagine giving up an innocent child to save the undeserving?
Last night, my family and I watched a 21st Century modern parable that gives us a small glimpse into what this sacrifice might look like. MOST – The Deluxe Edition DVD, beautifully illustrates the story of a father, his beloved son, and a great sacrifice that takes place at an open drawbridge. MOST, the Czech word for “The Bridge,” will stir your heart. It was most compelling and most intriguing!
MOST was filmed in Eastern Europe and is spoken in Czech with English subtitles. (It is translated into 18 subtitled languages, making it a great outreach tool). However, the language barrier did not hinder the message in anyway. Instead it created a timeless effect that brought the meaning of the message to full focus. MOST: The Deluxe Edition arrives at Christian stores and online retailers on March 1, 2011. It includes:
• MOST (33-minute film)
• Making of MOST (32-minute feature)
• Bonus Scenes
• Extended Ending
• Introduction and Commentary by Luis Palau
• Study Guide
• Scoring Session (1-minute featurette of Symphony recording session)
I am also pleased to offer MOST – The Deluxe Edition DVD to one of my readers. Just leave a comment and I will draw one name on Friday, February 25th. The DVD will be shipped directly to the winner.

I agree with you very much. It is hard to comprehend a love given toward man kind, who does not deserve such a love.
This is a very moving film! Our youth pastor shared it with the youth a couple of years ago. They were visibly moved.
We take so much for granted, or at least I do. He gave all he had so that I can have the life I live today!! Thanks Kimberly for the reminder!! have a great day
I believe that this verse sums it up completely:
The Bible says, “greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” (John 15:13.
I have never heard of this movie. I would love to win.
I would love to win this. I feel like I must’ve been living under a rock. I’ve never heard of it.
What praises can we offer that suffice for love so great as this, that Jesus would die for us? Not only did He give himself for us, but he gives himself to us through the Holy Spirit. His unfailing love is unfathomable. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about our LORD. Blessings to you, Kimberly…
You summed up how I feel when you said,”I believe it with all my heart, but I do not understand it.” He didn’t give His Son because we are all so good and deserving. He gave his life for our sin!
I watched the trailer…WOW! That does give a small glimpse of what our Father God had to go through to save us from eternal death! Praise God for His amazing love!
I also sent the link to your blog to friends! 🙂
