The Star Wars saga centers around the rise, fall, and redemption of Anakin Skywalker.
We know that Yoda sense much fear in Anakin and that fear is the path to the dark side. From 1 John 4:18(ESV) we know “perfect love drives out fear.”
The problem is, people that are filled with fear easily follow what Yoda warned against. “fear leads to anger… anger leads to hate.. hate leads to suffering.”
Anakin’s fear lead to anger, hate, and eventually a lot of suffering.
Despite all this, he was not beyond redemption. It was the sacrificial love of Anakin’s son, Luke, that led to his redemption.
We to can be redeemed, no matter how far we have fallen. We can be redeemed through the sacrificial love of God’s Son, Jesus the Christ.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. ~John 3:16 (ESV)
