Jack Frost- The Lukewarm Christian

What I will be writing about comes from the movie The Rise of The Guardians. Jack Frost really stuck out to me cause I could relate to him. He is invisible, like he doesn’t exist. Jack is like the unborn spirit, not alive yet. I call him lukewarm because he has no side. He has to choose.

Jack asks why he is alive to the man on the moon (God).  He soon finds out the answer from one of the guardians, Santa. He tells Jack he is called to be a guardian, but Jack doesn’t want to be chosen. He questions that the man on the moon has said this. Santa tells Jack it’s destiny, can’t say no! Like many of us, Jack doesn’t think he has anything to offer to become a guardian. Santa explains to him that he has a center. A gift inside that is special.  Santa’s center is wonder, born with eyes to “see”. Jack goes on a quest to find his center.

In order to do this he needs memories. Memories of his childhood. Those memories help Jack remember what’s important. This is why God says to be childlike, not childish but childlike. The memories help him remember why he is here. Pitch, who is like the devil, steals the memories. This causes an uprising in Jack. He didn’t care about being a guardian until now, Pitch has stolen his memories! What has Satan stolen from you? Has it changed how you live? When you come to the realization that Satan has stolen from you, you will stand up and fight! We are indifferent until it effects us.

Jack finds out his center is fun. When he starts walking in this truth he becomes more real and visible. If we believe, we will see. Our eyes are opened to the supernatural realm. God isn’t invisible anymore and the more we believe the more visible He becomes.

In order for the guardians to keep their “jobs” the children have to believe. There ends up being only one boy who believes and they go to his house. Jack is communicating with the boy being invisible but soon the boy sees him because he believed. Jack is so happy that he isn’t invisible anymore! Once he found his center and believed in himself then others believed in him too. Jack said at the end, just because you can’t always see the sun, it doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

We all have a center, potential, something to give. We just have to figure out what it is, believe in ourselves and it will become a reality! Once we are born again and made alive in our spirit we will want to give. When people become lukewarm in their faith, it’s because they have forgotten who they are! Remember you are God’s child and as a child of God you have a mission while you are walking the earth! Stop being invisible and give your self away. Make your presence known for the glory of God! Do what He has called you to do. Our lives are meaningless without God and His direction.
