Monday Kfirst Kickstart: “Threshing Floor Miracles” #OffScript

A screenwriter can spend months, or even years, perfecting a script. However, sometimes, the most iconic lines uttered on the silver screen aren’t the result of a writer at the top of his or her game, but rather an actor offering up some creative ad-libbing. Some of the most iconic moments in movie history were “off script.”

For example:
“Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good.” – Avengers Infinity War
“Here’s Johnny” – The Shining
“Here’s looking at you, kid” – Casablanca
The Joker’s slow clap – The Dark Knight
“I’m king of the world.” – Titanic
“You’re gonna need a bigger boat” Jaws

“Off script” seems to be a very apt way to describe what often happens to all of us. Something transpires in our lives that strays away from our intended plan(s). But that’s most of real life happens. It’s “off script”; completely unexpected and unplanned. This June, join us as we head into a story that is everything but “expected” by the people involved. The book of Ruth is canvas to view a beautiful picture of God’s love engaging in our “off scripted” lives.

Check out the service from the website or from the Facebook livestream. 

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • Some of us think we are the main actor in our story. Jesus is the main character; I am an “extra.”
  • God has a plan to redeem every painful thing you’ve gone through.
  • If we can remember what we were like before Christ, we’d have compassion for where people are without Jesus.
  • Jesus came to redeem culture, not to reject it.

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • “Because women are co-equal revealers of God within creation, if we fail to pay close attention to their stories and experiences, we’ll fail to capture God’s essence in full.” – Bruxy Cavey
  • Pain does not discriminate. Pain does not wait for an invitation.
  • How things are “going” should not determine how you are “doing.”
  • When my expectations do not match the scene in my life, there is a tendency to think that God is absent my story. God is working behind the scenes. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
  • Write the “lines” (reactions and responses) of your life based off the ending you see in faith based upon who God is and how He works.
  • Every pain can become a place to discover the masterpiece that God has in mind to make of us all.

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
