Grace Wesley finds herself in a whole lot of trouble after class one day. She has to decide whether or not she will stand by her convictions or not. She finds herself in court. She has a lawyer she can count on and a pretty good jury, until the preacher gets sent to the hospital because his appendix burst. While some of the community rallies around her, some of the community is against her and even betray her.
Then things turn a bit for her. The most intense part of the movie is when her lawyer starts questioning her. She really has to decide what she stands for, what she believes and what her relationship with Jesus means to her. She is willing to lose it all for His sake. Her unshaken faith strengthened mine. I thought about what I would do in that situation and what I was willing to sacrifice for His sake
We have enjoyed all the God’s Not Dead movies for the themes that are presented. In this one, Grace Wesley goes to court for teaching about Jesus in the classroom. I think there are better movies to show people defending their faith, but it does show a modern, culturally relevant example of someone standing up for their faith. What is always impactful to me about the God’s Not Dead movies is the real cases that they are based off, listed in the credits. I would love to see one of those portrayed.
