Now You See Me

Note: This is a continuation of posts from my Advanced Preaching students at Kentucky Christian University.  I (and they) would appreciate some feedback!

“Now you don’t.” This was the message four magicians received in the movie Now You See Me.  These four magicians were give a series of very specific instructions, and no other explanation as to why other than a name, The Eye.  These magicians, The Four Horsemen, literally spend years fulfilling these instructions.  They have to sacrifice their chance at careers, at money, and at power.  They have to risk going to prison, losing their credibility, and even death to accomplish their beliefs.  They do all this without ever once meeting The Eye.  In the end they accomplish the plans left for them and inspire new faith in millions and millions of people.  After it’s all over, they finally will get to see their mysterious benefactor.  These magicians’ faith, changed the way people viewed this lost and dying art.  They made people believers again.

Oh, by the way, there’s a note here for you too. Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (NIV)  - signed “I Am”
