Vampires

Monsters

Vampires scare us because they are creatures that live by taking life from others. Our culture encourages this sort of behavior, but we know it’s death for us. We find freedom in the way of the cross – Paul shows us that God is not a taker, but a giver. If we want to find life, we must follow the way of Jesus, allowing the cross to kill the vampires in us that the Spirit might bring us new life. Then we become ambassadors for God’s way – self-giving life for the world around us.

From Series: "Monsters"

Why do we love stories about monsters? Vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghosts fascinate us - which is strange. Monster stories aren't really about monsters - they're about us. Monster stories externalize our deepest fears about ourselves. If we're willing to face our monsters head-on, we can find freedom and hope. Let the monsters die that the humans can live!
