Sylvester Stallone talks how Jesus and his faith influenced the first Rocky movie

He played one of the most beloved underdogs of all time and now he is talking about his Lord and Savior.

It is no secret that Sylvester Stallone believes in Jesus Christ. You just might not have heard the media talk about it but if you ask him, he is not ashamed to tell you. Stallone’s faith is very dear to him and he even made sure to include it in the screenplay for Rocky.  Even the first shot of the movie is of Jesus Christ.  Watch now as Stallone talks to CBN about his faith and how Jesus had a lot to do with the first Rocky movie.

“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
Genesis 50:20

You’ve probably heard about or seen an Australian boomerang, an aboriginal hunting weapon that has become a popular souvenir and toy. The L-shaped piece of light wood, when thrown by a practiced expert, travels away from its thrower in an arc before returning to the same spot from which it was thrown.

Often what we give to others is what we end up getting for ourselves. When others intend to hurt us, God protects us and transforms our suffering into strength. The negative impact echoes back to those who wished us harm. While no one likes experiencing pain, disappointment, and betrayal, we can take comfort knowing that our wounds will not destroy us. Our Father uses everything in our lives to equip and strengthen us, transforming anything that others might throw at us.

Even when life throws us a curveball, we know God’s going to use it to score a victory in our lives.

Pray: “Dear God, I don’t understand some of the events that I’m experiencing right now, but I know that you will use them for my good and for your glory.”
