God and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

I wrote in a previous post about how I seem to constantly be quoting movies in Bible Study. I’m not entirely sure why that is, but I do love I can relate movies back to God.

A few months back I was leading a Bible Study and we were discussing how faith works– that you can’t always see what’s next or coming, but having faith means taking the first leap, knowing God will catch you. The vision that was instantly put in my mind (that I of course had to share) was from a scene in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (which by the way is one of my all time favorite movies)! Towards the end, Indiana is trying to reach the Holy Grail and has to complete a bunch of tasks first. One of them involves taking a literal leap of faith, crossing a bridge that does not seem to exist. Only when he steps out does he see the facade that has been created to trick the eye– there is a bridge, but you had to step out first in order to see it.

This scene is the perfect visual for me when thinking about trusting in God and having faith. You might not see where it’s going to lead you (or even take you next) but having the faith and trust that God will protect and provide helps you to cross that invisible bridge.

Try watching that scene and NOT thinking about this thought. You’re welcome. haha
