Walk the Line - The Gospel and Johnny Cash - John Van Sloten
September 10, 2006
|In this message we’re going to talk about the life story of Johnny Cash. Using the film, ‘Walk the Line’ as one of
our texts, we’re hoping to draw some interesting parallels between his story and the Christian gospel.
Preparing for this message;
Watch the movie…
Ask yourself, “How did my parents treat me when I messed up?”
“How did I respond to them?”
What might God be saying through this film about how he would respond?
Read Romans, chapter 8

“There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…”
The Apostle Paul in the book of Romans 8:1
You're blessed when you stay on course,
walking steadily on the road revealed by GOD.
You're blessed when you follow his directions,
doing your best to find him.
That's right—you don't go off on your own;
you walk straight along the road he set.
You, GOD, prescribed the right way to live;
now you expect us to live it.
Oh, that my steps might be steady,
keeping to the course you set;
Then I'd never have any regrets
in comparing my life with your counsel.
Walking the Line in Psalm 119:1-3
“A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;”
The prophet Isaiah re: a future Messiah, 42:5
“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD.”
Psalm 40 ( penned by real human being in a ‘real earthy’ book in bible
