An Act of True Love
Disney’s Frozen was a massive hit when it came out in 2013 and for a movie that is almost 10 years old, it hasn’t aged in popularity.
Elsa princess dresses and Olaf plush toys are still lining shop shelves and with the recent visit of the Broadway production of Frozen to Adelaide, it seems that people have fallen in love with it all over again.
Is it the songs, the lovable characters or the heart-warming story that draws people in?
The gospel message can certainly be seen in this timeless tale. John 15:13 says ‘Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.’
When Anna is in desperate need of an act of true love to thaw her frozen heart, she sacrifices herself for her sister Elsa and not only saves them both, but undoes the eternal winter that has fallen over their village. Jesus has shown us an amazing example of laying down His life for us, so that we can have eternal life with Him.
It is because of the love that we have been given that we can show the same love to those around us. What kind of act of true love will you show to someone today?
