Yes I saw the movie, I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Over all I would have to say it was a good movie. I was inspired by the passion and the drive the members of the group had but most of all the purpose of their journey. The reason they had such a successful journey in their career is because they had a passion to see something change. Growing up in the hood the passion came from seeing something unfair. My question was why don’t Christians have that same passion?

 

Why are we speaking passionately on how it’s unfair to live for yourself and not for God despite all the things he has done for us? Why aren’t we speaking about how God changed us? Why can’t we have a Christian revolution to change what is wrong to right? Why don’t we speak up on what the media feed us, and their goals to make us desperate to where we believe anything they feed us, while doing anything they tell us. Or how about sex before marriage? How it’s been such a norm in the Christian culture, while still pointing the finger at same sex marriage

 

The movie Straight out of Compton is the reflection of us in the world. We see how the world treats us but we don’t do or say anything about it. We need to be reminded that we have a voice and the only way things will change is if we stand up for what was right and repent to the truth.

 

Sorry if some of you haven’t seen it but there’s a part in the movie that the cops threaten NWA to not perform a certain song. Additionally they received a letter from the FBI stating they can be arrested if performed the song again. I’m not saying I agree with what they said but I admire their heart and boldness to go after what they believe in. They weren’t afraid of man or their threats. How many of us Christians can be afraid of what others might think if we bring up Christ, or randomly talk to someone about God? NWA’s careers and lives were on the line but they still sung the song they believed.
No cop is going to arrest you!!! It’s time we get bold and not let the world change us but we change the world. Speak up, sing your song, and share your faith!

 

The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion – Proverbs 28:1


 

 

 

What if you only had one month to live? How would you spend your time? How would you talk to people? What would your day consist of? How would you love others?

 

Many of us walk around sometime believing we are superman and that we will live forever but the reality is we will die. So why do we chase after the things of this world that will die with us? Some may be our outer possessions such as materialistic items, but most of the time it’s our inner comfort level that society calls security. Security obtained by the world, stays in the world. Meaning it has very temporary value. When chasing the pleasures of the world, or the securities of the world, it keeps you from attaining pass this world. For ALL that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. (1 John2:16). The idea of obtaining true security in the world is an imaginary reality. The injustices of this world proves the obscurity of placing our trust in what the world offers. The only security you can have, is in God.

 

If you only had one month to live there would be an authenticity that the world would see, with your actions having more intention and purpose. You would no longer be blinded by the distractions around you because suddenly they wouldn’t matter.

 

The greatest fear in life should not be failure but doing something that doesn’t matter. -Francis Chan
This quote really opened my eyes to life. To many times I find myself focused on what doesn’t matter. So many times we can focus on the cycle of life but never the end of the cycle. Creating a legacy is not just about what you do for yourself, but for the future generations after you. What impact are you leaving? Harold Kushner said “I am convinced that it is not the fear of death, or our lives ending, that haunts our sleep so much, it’s that as far as the world is concerned, we might as well never have lived.” It’s about the impact that you do. Impacting lives that changes the lifestyle of many. One thing I know is God is my lifestyle and He died for me to be comfortable in eternity. He is what matters, and offers the security that no one can take away. Devote every MINUTE in changing someone’s life. Keep in mind if you have one month to live, what would be your attitude.

 

What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14
