In their most recent “Share the Light” devotion posted on the Kevin Sorbo Official Facebook Page, actor Kevin Sorbo, known for his roles in “God’s Not Dead,” “Soul Surfer,” and his earlier TV series hit shows “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Andromeda,” and his wife, actress and co-writer of “Let There Be Light” Sam Sorbo, warned of “alarmist” headlines, “panic” and “fake news” media and reminded Christians to “Share the Light.”
Starting with “Good news for a change” in the Sorbo’s new devotional book, Kevin Sorbo read aloud Ephesians 5:8-9:
“For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.”
“‘Watch out!’ read Sam Sorbo from the “Share the Light” devotional book. “Today, alarmist arguments will try to hook you. Hysterical rumors will try to entice you. Provocative tabloids will try to ensnare you. Inflammatory remarks produce panic. But take heart. There is more hope for our world than the news headlines might suggest. You can be confident that God will use you to share the light in this world because he is at work right now shining his light in you.”
“On – shining his light on fake news,” quipped Kevin Sorbo to laughter from Sam. “Okay.”
The Sorbos first introduced the devotional book that goes along with the film “Let There Be Light” about a month ago, and have shared four clips on “Share the Light” to date.
The devotional “Good news for a change” goes on to ask two questions pertaining to news.
The first asks, “‘Why do our media and news cycles pivot towards panic?’ Give that some thought,” suggested Sam Sorbo. “‘Why did negative news become such a common standard of mainstream reporting?’”
Kevin Sorbo shared the second question, pertaining to “how you can share the light, … go out there and talk to the people you know and talk to the people that you meet at your church or people you just meet at parties for the first time”:
“‘Take a moment to consider how the Lord is shaping you into a person who doesn’t fall prey to the panic-inducing headlines of the world,’ read Kevin Sorbo. ‘When all around you are words of doom and despair, what is a different message that you can share?’ … ‘Instead of promulgating negative information,’ … ‘find a heartwarming story in the news today and share it with others in the grocery line, at the bank, or at the school pickup. When the worries of the world weight others down, you can be a light in the darkness. Share some good news on social media too,’ and use #LTBL.”
The Sorbo’s book has a foreword written by Franklin Graham and can be found at Walmart.
“We really just want to make the world a better place,” said Sam Sorbo about why they wrote the book, “and you can help. We can’t do it without you.”
“Enough hatred, enough anger, enough divisiveness out there,” said Kevin Sorbo. “Stop it already. Relax. Jeez.”
“Love one another, God bless, and Merry Christmas,” said the Sorbos together in closing.
