Tonight Tom and I had dinner with Tyler and Jen. They are the cutest newlyweds ever. They invited us over for some home-made pizzas (yum, yum) and then we went to see the X-Men movie. I have to say it was a great way to kick off a three day week-end. I had lots of fun. I love those guys.
The movie was pretty good and quite enjoyable. I guess I wasn’t expecting much since it was the third installment, but it had some cool moments. I liked Angel who could fly and had these really cool wings.
The movie got me thinking. There’s this sizable group of people that were different because they had unusual gifts. They were called “mutants.” The non-mutants thought something was wrong with them and they needed to be “cured.” Imagine that being so different that the “norm” of society wants to cure you because they think something is wrong with you. Let’s take real life for a moment shall we?
Is society threatened by us because of our supernatural abilities we operate in? Do we go around displaying the gifts and talents that God has given us to the fullest extent? Imagine if we walked around being able to hear people thoughts because God revealed it to us, or touch someone and they were miraculously healed. Maybe we walk around funeral homes and empty them out by raising people from the dead. These are things we could do because Jesus told us in John 14:12 – I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
After the movie, I posed the question if you could have superpowers which one would you have? Well if you know Tyler and Jen, you’ll have to ask them the next time you see them. As for me I thought I would love to throw fire, walk through walls or maybe fly. But in reality, the only superpowers I really want would be whatever God would give me – heal the sick, cast out demons, raise people from the dead, etc. You get the idea.
So I ask you what superpowers would you want to have?
