first time i knew about rurouni kenshin (るろうに剣心) is when they broadcasted the anime in indonesian television (and changed the title into samurai x -__-a) when i was still in junior high-school. then it became one of my favorite anime, i could memorize all the opening and ending songs (even now i still remember some of them), and i have all the comic books in indonesian. this year they made the live action movie of it and i just watched it last week.

the story is about himura kenshin, an assassin known as “hitokiri battousai” during bakumatsu war. after the war ended, he decided not to kill anymore and became a wanderer. 11 years later he came to tokyo and met with kamiya kaoru, sanosuke sagara, and other friends where the main story began.

in the live action movie, i found it interesting when kaoru knew the fact that kenshin was the hitokiri battousai but still offered him to stay in her dojo. she said “you are not hitokiri battousai, you are himura kenshin”.

it just reminded me of God’s love for us. no matter how bad we were, no matter how evil things we did, as long as we admit our sins to Him, repent and do no more sins, He will forgive us and will not remember our sins anymore. so no need to feel guilty anymore. no more the old sinner me, only the new me living in His grace.

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
– 2 Corinthians 5:17 [NLT]

And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.
– Hebrews 8:12 [NLT]

and also like in the movie, there might be times where temptations come and trying to pull us back to that old life. don’t give up, get back to God, His help is never too late.

Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”
– 2 Corinthians 12:9 [NLT]
