Neighbourhood Spiderman

God is like your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman because

a) God is friendly
b) God lives in your neighbourhood
c) God likes to rescue people

a, b or c? Or how about all three?

Jesus said, “I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15 – and “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10 – And Jesus said all this while walking on earth (our little neighbourhood in the galaxy).

What a great (MARVEL-lous) thought to take into your day.



Have you ever stopped to really consider what you mean to God? Sometimes we find it hard to believe that God can love our mistakes, our sinful nature and doubtful outlook. We hear all the time that God loves us, but do you believe that?

What must God think of you, that He sent His only son to die the worst death possible so that you never have to. He did this all to bring you into a reconciled relationship with Him. That’s how much He values you.

Read 1 John 4:7-16 ( for more about God’s love for you.


Favourite Song

Can God be like your favourite song?

I think so.
Favourite songs get stuck in our heads and follow us around all day. They surprise us when we suddenly find ourselves singing them at unexpected times and in unusual places.

God’s Spirit is a lot like that.
David said it like this: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” (Psalm 139:7 – God’s presence is with you all day. Singing to you at unexpected times. Like when you’re about to say a harsh word. In unusual places. Like your girlfriends’ room.

God’s Spirit song is there to guide, help and challenge you.



In the movie “Little”, Jordan becomes a bully because she is done being bullied. But this behaviour follows her into adulthood and it is not pretty. She basically stops herself from who she really is because she wants to avoid being hurt.

Have you allowed what others think of you, and how they treat you, stop you from being you? Most of the time when we are trying to be who we’re not it’s a mess, and end up losing so much more. This has never been what God wants for us.

How can you be more of who God wants you to be this week?
