The Encounter

We watched a movie last week called, “The Encounter”.
In this movie there was a broken down girl, a black couple wanting a divorce, a young lady who was about to get engaged, and a man whom is full of pride and money.
There was a bridge out, and so a police officer, told them to all turn around.
All of these people find shelter in a Diner a mile or so down the road, and their waiter (the only man that works/owns the place) happens to be Jesus himself.
Jesus talks to all of them about their lives, and about how God had prevented death, or something else from happening in each of their lives.
At the end, the couple decides against divorce, the young lady decides (after much advice from Jesus) to not marry this man that she “Loves” because he is not a Christian, and the broken down girl decides to go back home and tell the police officer everything that she’s been through with her parents, so that her dad can go to jail. (Jesus told her that her dad was going to have to learn a lesson from all of his disobedience)
You might have noticed that I didn’t say anything about the man whom was full of pride. Well, the man, (no matter how hard Jesus tried to reach out to him) refused Jesus’ help. Satan (whom was disguised as a police officer, who told them the bridge was out) tells the man the bridge is back up, and the man follows him out the door. Unfortunately, the man went around the curb too fast, fell into a ditch, and died instantly. During this part of the movie, Jesus quoted from John 10 (I think)

John 10:11-18
11 “…I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13 He flees because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me, 15 even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd. 17 For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again. 18 No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.” today's culture, there are many people who claim to know Christ (just like the man whom was led astray) and yet are deceived. If we just listen to God's voice (the voice of the Shepherd) than we will know true peace, and we will be a sheep that follows the Shepherd.
