127 Hours

127 Hours the movie is the true story of Aron Ralston and his ordeal of being trapped in the desert and having to take unusual measures to survive.

Here's what the reviews say about the movie:
"127 Hours" is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolate canyon in Utah. Over the next five days, Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers, family, and the last two people he ever had the chance to meet? A visceral thrilling story that will take an audience on a never before experienced journey and prove what we can do when we choose life.

In the movie Aron goes into his memory and tries to remember his life, family and his friends. The one thing that he remembers is his son and how much he loves him and wants to hold him. Here's the rub, he has no son; yet. You see his will to live is that he wants to have children, a son specifically. it is this love of the son that saves his life. It is the need to have this relationship with the son that keeps him alive.

It is just me or does this story kind of sound familiar to you? The relationship with the son is what saves people today. The Son is Jesus Christ and the relationship is with him in life change. It is that life change that causes us to live a life of meaning and fulfillment.

My friend Jeff and I were having lunch and talking about how difficult this movie is to watch, the blood, pain, and the ways that everything just came together in a coincidental fashion. When I think of Jesus Christ coming to mankind, I believe the scriptures talk about the fullness of time.

Oh well, once again the movies show us truth in Christ and this movie does the same; "127 Hours."
