I was reading in Luke 8 today which tells of miracles performed by Jesus like raising people from the dead and calming the sea. Because I have not seen things like these with my own eyes happen I can only imagine what it was like to experience. As I was reading, my mind instantly starting thinking about movies like X-Men and shows like Heros where people have these amazing superpowers. These movies draw us in because people have extrondinary gifts that usually help save the day.
If you could have a superpower what would you choose? I’ve always wanted to be able to read peoples minds. I’d love to know what people are really thinking. Or what about that kid on Heros that could get money from an atm machine…thats pretty cool. 🙂 I’m also so pathetic that I would choose to have the “be able to eat a plate full of chocolate chip cookies and not gain a pound” power. Not sure how that would save the world though….but I digress.
Those movies and shows are great and all. But they are just make believe.
Yet how awesome, how amazing, how crazy is it that on earth there walked a man who could change water into wine, calm the sea, walk on water. Thats not make believe. Its truth.
