He and the big brothers attended day camp last week. At the end of the week, his mother asked him, "What was the Bible Verse for the week?" Without hesitation, he quoted directly from "Spiderman".
I will give him credit for quoting a Super Hero, but NOT the right one. (Originally this is a quote from Voltaire, the famous French philosopher) What is amazing is he said it so convincingly, that you might think he was quoting The Word. When we don't know the answer to a question, giving an answer quickly and with authority can often convince those listening we know what we are talking about.
As I thought this over, after my initial fit of giggles, I began to recognize the truth in it. We are told in The Word~
but you will be patient
SO, the little man is correct, God strengthens us with HIS own great power. The power does not come from us, but instead God is the source of all power. We are weak and mortal without His great power.
Searching for our responsibilities as Believers can lead to a long list. Paul once again puts its all in a nutshell in the same letter to the Colossians~
So perhaps the little man is on to something. He might have instinctively known these words from one of his favorite super heroes could well apply to our lives as Believers. With the great power which we are gifted from God, Himself, indeed we have a great responsibility.
