Hey everybody, Greg Laurie here with my friend John Irwin, the director of Jesus Revolution.

Not only the director, but you wrote the screenplay and now the film is coming out this week. Tell people why this is important to watch in person in a theater as opposed to waiting for it to stream. I've never worked on a film before where the audience cheers with the movie. I've never experienced that before. You laugh, you cry, but another thing happens as Christians when we champion something together in a moment.

It creates what's called fear of missing out, FOMO. And the people that follow after we unify our voice, it's sort of like Battle of Jericho. The last step before the walls of Jericho fell down was the people who unified their voice, and all at once. When we do that, the walls between us and culture fall down and millions of people end up experiencing the film that would not otherwise if we didn't champion it when it comes out. So we like to say a movie ticket is like your vote.

Yeah. And it really is like an election. And when we vote together, amazing things happen. Beyond that though, it's a wonderful experience.

It really is. It's a very entertaining film. It's a laugh out loud film. It's a shed a tear for sure film, but most of all, it's a gospel infused story of redemption. And we're hoping and praying that all of you will go out and buy at least two tickets, one for you and one for a non-believer.

We talk about films as like setting a volleyball that you can spike. Yeah. We're just praying that revival would happen again.

And what happened in that generation would happen in this generation. I think we're already seeing signs of it. And so buy your tickets now. It opens nationwide this weekend. Let's have a strong start because the stronger the film starts, the longer the film will last in a theater near you. Get your tickets and we'll see you at the movies.
