Who are you?
If someone were to come up to you right now and ask that question, what would your answer be? We all like to think that the answer would be "I'm a child of God" or something to that effect. But the reality of the situation is, in our culture today, we let what we do define who we are instead of finding our identity in Christ. Instead of answering the question the right way we give answers like, Oh, I'm a singer or blogger or insert other occupation here; and then we're asked again and we struggle to think of a response that will suffice so we stumble and say something that has to do with our hobbies. Then, eventually, when nothing else is left to be said and we're asked again...for some reason, then we will say "oh well, I'm a Christian." What does that say about society when the things that define who we are and are most important to us, don't really matter in the grand scheme of things? The only way we will ever be truly satisfied is when we look to our Creator to find who we are and we truly seek out our identity in Christ. We all face challenges in life. That's a given, God never said it would be easy...but it's how we face those challenges that set our course for the future. The most important thing that we can do to overcome adversity is to do that very thing, find out who we are from the One who created us. This is something that everyone struggles with and something that the movie "Overcomer" highlights. Coach John Harrison is asked that question by a mysterious man and he answers it the way that most people in today's society would and later on uses the same logic with Hannah Scott. Once Harrison realizes how he's been living his life is where the theme of repentance comes in. Redemption is a theme throughout as well when it comes to a character revealing his dark past while also tying in forgiveness due to the events of the past. This movie is more than just a movie, it's an experience. As you watch, the more things you start to think about, and you realize maybe there's something else you should be doing to improve your relationship with Christ, I know that's how I felt after watching. Please go see this movie...if you're a Christian, a sceptic, no matter where you are on your path in life, this film will deeply impact you in more ways than one.
