In a recent Facebook post, actress and film co-writer of “Let There Be Light,” Sam Sorbo and her actor husband, best known for his roles in “God’s Not Dead,” “Soul Surfer,” and his earlier TV series hit shows “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Andromeda,” Kevin Sorbo introduced their new devotional book “Share the Light” that goes along with the film “Let There Be Light.”
“We’re here to present little snippets of our devotional ‘Share the Light,’ which is the devotional that goes along with ‘Let There Be Light,’ which was our movie that came out last year,” stated Sam Sorbo, alongside Kevin Sorbo. “But we’re re-offering it for Christmas this year” – “as a double package,” Kevin interjecting – “together with the devotional.”
In a recent interview with CNSNews.com, Kevin Sorbo detailed the movie that inspired he and his wife’s new book “Share the Light,” their film “Let There Be Light.” Sorbo explained, “[T]he movie was co-written by my wife and Dan Gordon. We shot it last year. It was in theaters for three months, last November, December, January. It did very well. It’s called ‘Let There Be Light.’” In fact, the film was in the top 10 during its first three weeks.
“So, we’re going to do a little bit of the first devotional, called ‘Light in the Darkness’” Kevin began. “I’m going to read … John Chapter 8, verse 12. ‘When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”’
“So, the beginning of this devotion starts with: ‘You are invited on an incredible journey. Ahead of you is a world covered in darkness. Some of your friends and family are stumbling as they stretch out their arms, test their footing and try to navigate their way through obstacles in the dark,’ read Sam Sorbo from the devotional book.
“‘In some moments, debris has covered their paths. In other moments, disoriented wandering has caused them great confusion. People in this darkening world are struggling to see what God the Creator has created for them. Some even fail to know their Creator,’” continued Mrs. Sorbo. “‘When darkness sets into a person’s life, it steers them a long way from hope and blinds their vision. But God said, “let there be light.”’”
“‘And there was,’” read Kevin Sorbo, and repeated Sam.
The Sorbos then described that in each of the devotions, several questions are asked of the reader. Kevin Sorbo read question two aloud, “Take a moment to remember a time when you physically walked around in darkness. What did you do with your hands? What was each step like? What worries did you have?”
At the end of each devotion the Sorbo’s also provide a suggestion as to how the reader can respond to the devotional. Sam Sorbo read the suggestion at the end of the first devotion:
“Choose someone you know who is clouded by darkness today. Take time right now to pray for them. Brighten up their day by sending them a card, some flowers, or inviting them to do something fun and ‘light’-hearted with you.”
The Sorbos plan to “cover more” of their devotionals found in the book “Share the Light.” The first week and third week snippets can already be found on the Sorbo’s “Let There Be Light” Facebook page.
