Yeah. Fireproof is another film from Sherwood Pictures that is also behind of Facing the Giants.
I am not married but still I believe God spoke to me the time I watched this movie. Okay, I am 22 now and who knows 8 years later or less, I will get married. Fireproof explains the struggles a couple may find in marriage and how God repairs it.
To see the plot of the movie, read this Fireproof 2008 film website from Wikipedia.
Never leave your partner behind
Even before, God already created marriage. Genesis 2:18 “It is not good for the man to be all alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”
Caleb and Catherine Holt forgets their purpose why they got married. Maybe at first time, they felt that love is basing in their emotions, well as we know, emotions cannot be trusted. They said bad things towards each other which we know is pointless. Until, Catherine said “I want out.” So they thought Divorce was the answer.
Caleb’s parents who feel accountable for his son took a visit and talked with their son. Caleb was irritated to his mother and so he is much comfortable to talk to his father than to his mom. His father had a strong foundation of Jesus and challenged his son to commit the 40 day Love Dare while they were preparing of divorce lawsuit. Caleb expected the Love Dare to be not a religious commitment. While following the half-way point of the Love Dare challenge, Caleb saw that it was not working. He was totally hurt. He was loving a Catherine who in return did not love him back. He talked to his dad again and realized that he needs someone who can make him change. At that point, he has faith to Jesus who loves us all inspite of the rejections we did to Him.
In the movie, we saw how Jesus works when we have him. There is understanding, true love and peace.
I recommend this movie to all of you out there. I hope that through this, God is speaking to you. My prayer is that you’ll learn a new perspective about marriage that can please God.
I want to congratulate the Sherwood Pictures and all other people who contributed a lot to this movie. May we have this kind of movie more. I am so blessed with this movie.
