Christian Bale is considered to be one of the talented actors of Hollywood in this era. He got projected to the world stage for mastering the role of Batman in Nolan’s blockbuster trilogy.
Christian bale is not a Christian but we Christians need to learn something from this guy.
For the Movie “The Machinist”, He lost 64 pounds(28.5 kgs) to master the character Trevor, who is a “skeletal” insomniac. He transformed his athletic body into a skeletal body by going without proper rest and food for many . It is said that He ate only apples. That’s crazy dedication… In an age where Fat stay Fat as losing weight is tough, this guy keeps changing his body size. After his skeletal transformation, he had to put on lot of weight for his
legendary role as Batman.
When I think about Christian Bale, I’m reminded of a Crazy Christian Guy who has set a high standard for christian living through his passionate, dedicated life. His name was Paul. Getting beaten and thrashed but still going forward Jesus. Paul, why not live for yourself? “Sorry, I don’t have time…I’m so lost in Love with Jesus that I will live for Him alone”. Hey Bale, why go through so much pain for a single movie?? “Acting is my passion”. Hey Christian, What is your life???…”Oh, I’m tired I can’t pray, Oh, I’m busy I don’t have time for God…God understands”. What????
Christian bale’s passion for acting made Him do crazy stuffs. His Love for Cinema is seen in His crazy dedication. What is your life??? What can you show in your life that displays your Love for God??…If Bale is so much passionate and so much dedicated for cinema, how much more should we be for God and His Kingdom?? Where are the passionate God lovers who are totally focused on Loving God and Serving Him?? Is there no one with fire in our churches??…If you say you Love God but don’t back it up with a life sold out for God similar to Paul or Christian bale, then you need to sit and think:”Why my Love for God is not real and with evidence??”…
“All” the things I once thought were so important are gone from my life. Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant—dog dung. I’ve dumped it “all” in the trash so that I could embrace Christ and be embraced by Him. Philippians 3:7-9(MSG)
