Video Clips for Sermons
The Shawshank Redemption
A clip from near the end of the film where Red gets a letter from Andy talking about Hope. “Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies…”
Shifting the Blame
This humorous clip shows a dog eating a sandwhich and drinking a Pepsi and then placing a cat on the empty place to shift the blame. Genesis 3 comes to mind when I watch this.
The Crowd or the Cross
Tags: Discipleship, Cross
There’s a big difference between what the world believes and what Christ taught. This video compares what the crowd says and what the Cross says. Music by the Robbie Seay Band.
The Bucket List
Tags: Faith, God
This film is about 2 men who have 6 months to live because of cancer. Not wanting to die without living life to the fullest, they write out a list of things to do before they die. This clip shows them talking about God.
The Bible Contains
A well put together video explaining the importance of the Bible.
The Kingdom Of Heaven
Good clip to show as an introduction to talking about the kingdom of God.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade:
Good clip to talk about – ‘What is Faith?’. He has a book that is guiding him as to what to do (could talk about the Bible being our guide) but in the end he has to step out in faith. It is only as he steps out that he notices a stone bridge. When crossing the Jordan, the priests had to step in the river before the waters were stopped upstream.
Tags: Love, Cross
This film is based on the true story of a boxer called ‘The Hurricane’ who was wrongly put into prison. Towards the end of the film Rubin (The Hurricane) says this, “Hate put me in prison. Love is gonna bust me out!”
