I like this blog posting a whole lot! I have many of Denzel’s films and always enjoyed watching him work in them not only because I met him on a film set, a great job experience, but even aside from his smooth skill and capability to act on cue so authentically which I admire, for me it is moreover; for his real genuine Christian faith!

He did grow up on some mean streets and as he put it many guys he was around during that period of his life went down the tubes with drug addiction and crime many did hard time! He was blessed to have two wonderful parents and got grounded in life early with a great foundation his Dad being a Minister and his Mom being a great Mother and having her own salon being a very ambitious person herself, I can see gave him much to appreciate and be proud of but it was Jesus that gave him his greatest strength of moral integrity and purpose. I can personally identify with him saying how God protected him or how prayers made the difference; because that has been my experience for sure, knowing I was going to die at least a few times if not for some act of God or Divine Intervention! And not just my prayers helped, I know the prayers of others especially, in my case my Mother, Father and Grandmother made a world of difference in my being given graces when really needed! My Dad too was always a devout man of God, bringing Him into conversations we had when I was growing up; that helped me immensely!

I actually wrote what you just read to this point before I finished reading this article completely, because I got inspired and busy writing quickly what I was thinking and feeling so spontaneously; and then I just came upon what Denzel said here, about what his Mom told him, “Boy, you don’t know how many people have been praying for you.” There you go; this is witness of God speaking to us right now! He is saying right now, “you sure can believe in the power of prayer,” as my Mother always said, “it’s the most powerful weapon there is to guide and protect us!”

It all came together for Denzel going to a private military academy that his Mom placed him in after his parents split up, but, Denzel said that joining the Boys Club in Mount Vernon is where the biggest change or epiphany occurred in his life; when a coach there told him and the other boys “you can be something, it’s really up to you!” Denzel got a confidence from that one comment and started believing, “hey yea I can be something or someone, I can be what I want to be.” He is a shining example of how the youth in America and beyond don’t have to be wasted or lost to the inner city ruckus or turmoil; if they get some insight and good input from Christian minded adults, who project that good to them in those formative years, just the way that coach did!  Denzel was given a strong message of Hope, all of it from God, but, coming through some really good people, I believe it ignited in him so positively, that he made up his mind to “work hard and make himself something that Jesus would be proud of,” and; I’m sure He is.
God bless y’all.

Brother in Christ Jesus,

Acclaimed actor, director and producer Denzel Washington recently appeared on Instagram Live for a conversation with his friend, A.R. Bernard, the lead pastor of the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, New York. During the discussion, Washington shared examples of the grace God has shown him over the years, especially through his family andthe Holy Spirit.

“It was a supernatural, if not once in a lifetime experience…that I couldn’t completely understand at the time,” said Washington, describing a moment in the early 80s when he was filled with the Holy Ghost. The actor, who is known for movies such asMalcolm X,Glory, andTraining Day, had decided to visit the West Angeles Church of God in Christ (COGIC) in Los Angeles. When the church gave an altar call, he thought, “This time, I’m just going to go…

    1. Hey Sister Marcia… so good to hear that! I think some people would call him a cool cat for sure but in actuality I think he really is a genuinely really nice guy that I admire too, who was blessed with such wonderful special gifts from God to use in a worthy and highly notable way. Following God’s will on his path he accomplished so much that speaks to important factors here in the land of the living and lost not just for entertainment value but bringing some more importantly, testimonies and truth to the fore; even his own life being an example of what is possible when we walk in faith with our Lord!

      I suppose I’ve done some of that too along my own unique and individual path just like most of us have and do; answering the call of the Lord to serve Him while we have the opportunity to do so; to be that “somebody” that God wants us to be. Denzel in my opinion discovered early what the Lord was calling on him to do with his life and he didn’t let up; not one bit, always mindful that everything he was doing and achieving was all made possible by genuine faith in Christ Jesus!

      Thank you for saying what you have here, and I’m glad you enjoy seeing Denzel producing for the Lord in his unique God given way, a shining example of faith in motion!

      Brother in Christ Jesus,
