The "Mission: Impossible" movie series has been around a long time. The first movie of the series came out in 1996 and the sixth movie in the series was released in 2018. According to the internet, it appears two more movies are expected to be released in 2021 and 2022. That would make eight movies in the series over a span of 26 years, all with Tom Cruise as the leading actor! The basic plot of the movies revolves around Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his work with the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). By the end of every movie, a bunch of high-octane action events occur and a seemingly impossible mission is made possible by Tom Cruise (sorry about the spoilers). While movie critics will say these are some of the best actions movies ever made; I think we all get the point by now.
In Matthew 19: 23-26, Jesus is teaching the disciples one of the toughest lessons of the Bible. This is the famous passage where Jesus says, and "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” When they comprehend this, they ask, "Who then can be saved?" Jesus then looks at them and says, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” As the disciples later learn, Jesus was foreshadowing the most important mission ever completed.
Tom Cruise looks really cool in those fictitious action movies that have lasted a long time, but he's no God. God made the impossible possible by sending His son to die on the cross for our sins so that we might have eternal life with Him. Without this completed mission, our sins would naturally keep us separated from the life that God wants us to have with Him. Many people want to be "Tom Cruise heroes" here on earth, but without Jesus, their mission is truly impossible. Never forget who flips the script to walk (and talk) with you each day. Mission: Possible.
