Those who have will know that it's about the end of the world
In the film, NASA discover a giant asteroid in space that is heading straight for Earth
If it hits us, it will wipe out everything and everyone
So NASA decide to send a bunch of people to the asteroid to blow it up
In a minute we're going to see a clip from the end of the movie
They discover that the nuclear bomb is broken which means that somebody has to stay
behind on of asteroid and it set of bomb of my hand
[Play the clip from Armageddon]
2 hr 13 min "hey men, lets draw. Let's see who's going to stay up here and
2 hr 23 min "Houston, we're coming home"
The middle bit
In the film, Harry is a hero
Would you agree? Why?
When I saw that film, parts of it reminded me of the Easter story
That's because Harry Stamper and Jesus have one thing in common...they both saved the world
Harry saved the world from been wiped out by the asteroid
Jesus saved the world from all the bad stuff that we've done
The Bible calls this sin
He saved us from it because
it stops us from getting to know God
it holds us back
messes with our head
To God this stuff is real important, 'cos he loves us
We can read about this in John 3:16 (The Message) "This is how must God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And
this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a
whole and lasting life"
The end bit
In Armageddon some people wanted to be saved, and some others didn't (the mad
Thats the same with God...some people want to live their life for
God, some people don't...
To close tonight, I'd like us to think about that
If you would like to get to know God more, to "save you", I'd
like you to say this prayer with me...either in your head or out loud
