Did you know that the movie TITANIC has become the most popular movie of all time? Why? And what is the subtle message the movie conveys?
The receipts of this movie are well over a billion dollars and climbing. The film TITANIC has struck a nerve. Millions are returning to see it again. Writer Terry Mattingly says: TITANIC has a filled a hole in romance-starved movie-goers.
Now on the surface, the story seems very noble. A young man rescues a girl from death and later sacrifices his life so she can survive the disaster. Rose says of her hero Jack, He saved me in every way a person can be saved. But it carries a very subtle spiritual message, doesnt it?
A major reason this movie has gripped our hearts is that the story points to a longing all of have. We want to be loved. We want to be rescued from harm. We want to be raised above the pettiness of this world.
Jesus offers all of that and so much more. His love is with a passion we cannot even begin to understand. He gives his life so that each one of us can be saved. He went to the cross so that we might have real joy.
