Wonderful you say. Yes, to be sure,
but he does what is still more wonderful:
he makes saints out of sinners.”
Soren Kierkegaard, Danish Philosopher

SALVATION

The Danes are kind people who value simplicity, modesty, and equality. They maintain one of the highest standards of living in the world. Yet, while over 80 percent of the population identifies themselves as Lutheran, churches are in decline and only an astonishing two percent of the population attend church, with half of those members reporting being agnostic or atheist. Furthermore, many Danes long for greater purpose in their lives, failing to find it in the comforts of culture and personal efforts towards happiness. Consequently, antidepressant and alcoholic consumption is staggeringly high within the culture. But, there is good news. Jesus is satisfying the longing hearts of the Danes. He is encountering them through His Word and inviting them to new life in Christ, as you will see in the first short film.

While Danish culture is infused with Christian principles and traditions, the teachings of the Bible have little impact on the daily lives of Danes. As a result, Denmark has become increasingly post-Christian over the past century, and faithful followers of Jesus continually find themselves in the minority, especially if they are known to actively read the Bible and pray. Yet, Christ is cultivating a steadfast faith in the hearts of His people in Denmark. He is inviting them to a beautiful, enriching life with Him, even in the midst of suffering, as you will see in the next film.

Manuel is a thoughtful husband, an attentive father, and a successful leader at a global engineering and architectural firm. However, it’s not what Manuel does that makes him the person he is today, but rather what he believes.
Two weeks after Noa was born, doctors discovered he had a defective heart and little chance of living a full life. Over two decades later, Noa is not only alive, but he is living a vibrant life full of joy, faith, and the occasional 100 meter sprint.
“BY THIS MY FATHER IS GLORIFIED, THAT YOU BEAR MUCH FRUIT AND SO PROVE TO BE MY DISCIPLES.”
JOHN 15:8
Reflecting on what you’ve seen, and as the Holy Spirit leads, pray for Spirit-empowered life change using the following suggestions:

PRAY THAT THE LOVE OF CHRIST WOULD COMPEL CHRISTIANS TO LOVE OTHERS AROUND THEM IN RADICAL WAYS.
C
PRAY FOR THE CHURCH TO REMAIN STEADFAST AS THEY ENDURE HARDSHIPS AND EXPERIENCE RESISTANCE FROM CULTURE.

As you’ve seen, God is working in astounding ways to make Himself known to the Danish people. And yet, there are many who still wait to hear the good news of Christ and His Kingdom. Thankfully, churches continue to be planted as spiritual openness increases among the Danes. Even those who have grown up in nominal Christianity are being awakened to the confounding, life-giving truth of Christ in the Bible. This openness also extends to immigrants who have taken up residence in Denmark and have yet to hear the Gospel. And God’s love is compelling Danes, empowering them to make disciples of Christ, no matter the cost, as you will see in the last film.
