Confession time…especially after last week’s post…I like superhero movies. They are such a powerful visual demonstration of truths about mankind. First, we all long for a Savior. Second, humans have an ingrained instinct to worship, a desire to be “wowed”.
I was (admittedly, wasting my life) watching a superhero movie last night all the way through the crazy credits and my eyes happened to glance on Stan Lee’s name.
Not many men in all of human history have done what he has done.
He created a new art form and has crafted a dynasty from his genius.
His sphere of influence is worldwide and his financial empire is willing supported by “taxes” on throngs of adoring fans.
Success is not a big enough word to describe his life accomplishments.
Build up his accolades up as high as you want….then, consider a single question that can any worldly kingdom to its knees. What is it worth in heaven? Nothing. It is worth nothing.
Now, consider the greatest thing you can imagine accomplishing in your life? Dream as big as you can. Nothing is impossible here – all the money, all the power, all the fame and all the influence…you’ve got it all. In heaven it will be worth exactly what Stan Lee’s will be worth.
Now are you willing to trade your nothing for God’s everything? He can imagine more, dream even bigger and always has the means to achieve what He desires for your life. God’s dynasty is eternal. His empire never ends. In fact, only eternity will truly reveal the stunning value of a life lived following His plan.
What do you have to lose? Nothing.
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
