Never leave your partner behind, especially in a fire

My husband is always on the lookout for what's new and what's next. He's never been one to dwell in the past or celebrate the history of anything too much. He's always looking ahead. He has a spirit of adventure that keeps him on a quest for the next new thing. He's always looking for fun.

If he were a rich man with lots of free time there would be no stopping him. However, since his money and time are in limited supply, it really makes both of us a little giddy when he comes across something for free.

Last night we got to reap the benefits of his adventurous pursuits. We were able to see a preview screening of the movie Fireproof. For free. (Yay!) The movie will not be in theatres until Sept. 26.

Fireproof is made by the same people who made the movies Flywheel and Facing the Giants. If you don't know about those movies, they were made by Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Incredible. Each of the three movies that they have produced is better than the one before. They just keep getting better and better.

The story in Fireproof is current. The setting is a situation that could be, and most likely is, happening in any one of our homes right now. It's about relationships. And how Jesus makes the difference.

Just go see it. You need to see it. Mark your calendar for Sept. 26.

Take your husband, your wife, your mom and dad. You'll be glad you did.


But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Be merciful to those who doubt; snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh. To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen Jude 1:20-25
