If you’re anything like me, you left the cinema after watching the latest Avengers movie, Infinity War, broken. When some of our favourite heroes drift away, their bodies fading into dust, I was shaken to my core.

What next?
Where have they gone?

Lately I’ve seen the parallel between that, and Genisis 3:19 (http://bit.ly/2GnmKsh) where it says we are from dust, and to dust we shall return. This may seem depressing, but isn’t it incredible that as Jesus followers, that’s not the end.

We don’t have to ask “What’s next?”.
We know our time here is short-lived, but our time in Heaven is eternal.

Earlier this month the Marvel icon passed away. #RIPStanLee
Stan Lee created a whole world of leaders that we know as superheroes
We can mourn for the loss.
But we can also celebrate his life and ask ourselves what we have learnt.

“With great power comes great responsibility.”
(Spiderman)

To be a leader in school, in church or for your team is no small thing. Take the position with wisdom and courage! You may have read (or even watched) what a big impact Stan Lee’s life made.

Ask yourself:
What am I called to do?
What is the vision for my life?

Read Proverbs 29:18 (KJV) http://bit.ly/2Q9cWG4

Hidden Figures was an incredible movie that told the less-known story of a few black women who played key roles during the race to land on the moon. This movie reminds us that often we don’t know the whole story.

As followers of Jesus if we only listen to the preach on Sundays and don’t spend time in the Bible we may find that we miss out on the full story. Acts 17:11 (http://bit.ly/2Pk1Ihj) tells a beautiful story of a group called the Bereans who received Paul’s preaching with eagerness but then later checked it with the scriptures. We need to be reading the Bible regularly so that we continue to grow our understanding of the whole story.

Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy II were two big movies that featured impressive heroes. Individually they were all very powerful. Both movies showed us the possibility that exists in teams. None of the heroes, on their own, were strong enough to defeat the bad guys, but when they united they became unstoppable.

Read 1 Corinthians 12 (http://bit.ly/2PjefBM) to get the full picture, but verse 12 says: “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its parts form one body, so it is with Christ.” God has given us the church as a gift that together we might achieve more.
