Grounds for gratitude

Dear Mr. Mel Gibson,

Just a note to say thanks for producing the film, The Passion of the Christ. I appreciate your courage in making this film. The original language-how beautiful this film is. The work…I can't imagine what it takes to have the fortitude to bring this work to its completion. It's as good as it's gonna get this side of heaven for an accomplishment of "work well done good and faithful servant." I actually don't know how you ever managed to accomplish this task in the face of liberal adversity with content and God-given subject matter. Thank you, Mr.Gibson. You're skill, time and effort leaves me as a viewer speechless and is why I haven't written until now. This movie and the look on Mary's face, when they are scourging our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, captures the dark of darkest pain, sorrow and suffering we'll ever know on this earth. The look on her face and in her eyes…the acting-it just leaves me weak...you know where you have one of those really bad days where you're praying for the sweet release death will bring...and you're on the floor perhaps in the fetal position sucking your thumb and wrestling with feelings of loss of all hope, weeping with the trials of this life...the loss of a loved one, a broken relationship, a broken heart, loss of job, an addiction {SIN & TEMPTATION) where like brother Martin Luther you pray, "I am Yours, SAVE ME.". You captured that look in the film on her face with all the horrifying sounds in the background…what must it have been like for her and the Disciples/Apostles to witness this Biblical unfolding of events? Oh my gosh!!! I just can't wrap my puny little brain around the magnitude of the situation. The film really causes one to reflect, to pause, to think. Like the song, "I can only imagine."

I am glad to LIVE at such a time and know a person (YOU) that sees this part of history as something worthy of film-making and the silver screen…most worthy, if you will, of our every thought in these difficult days. We are called to glorify God-to glorify His Son. Thank you for making the point-hitting the target right on. Every morning I pray to hold my thoughts captive to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and watching this film helps in that mission.

I sobbed uncontrollably like two days after I saw the movie for the 1st time. And it was about a year before I could watch the movie again. I am watching it now faithfully Mr. Gibson because I want to learn the original language. The film and your work…they are just that beautiful to me.

Jesus SAVES!!! Thank you for making this film. All other films pale in comparison. I love watching the film and listening to the words in the original language. I love the film because it calls me to repentance for my sin, for my depravity…for my rebellion. It calls me to look at how He suffered and died that I might live and live in HIM. It is a very difficult film to watch because of the TRUTH it speaks of GRACE!!! We are not worthy.

I just want you to know I appreciate all you did in making this film. It's the best film EVER!!! Thanks for staying the course and not giving up. You're in my prayers. HOLD FAST to the promises in the Bible. Don't give up. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don't mean to ramble on and on like the deposition for a whiplash injury accident from the law offices of Norton, Frickey and Associates but ding dang it…color me dazzled!!!
