Last weekend I had the privilege of tagging along with the teens at the Blizzard Youth Rally. It was a great time of food, fellowship, games, and awesome preaching. 

The theme was WhoYaGonnaCall?, and was focusing on superheroes and how Christ should be our superhero. He talked about how perception is reality. We perceive athletes, musicians, actors/actresses to be a certain way and we believe that's how they really are, but our perception of them is not real. Christ on the other hand is real! He is holy, humble, highly exalted, and here. He wants to be part of our lives...He wants to be our Friend, Guide, Comforter, and Saviour. He is the most real thing in our lives!

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. ~Philippians 2:5-13

Saturday morning was about who are we imitating. He again referred to the culture around us and how quickly we try to imitate people we think are cool, but those people don't care about us. All we are to them are dollar signs, plus there's no fulfillment in imitating them. But He's Someone worth imitating! We should be striving all the time to be more Christ-like.  When we are imitating someone, everyone around us knows who we are imitating. I don't know about you, but I want Christ to radiate from my life! I want to imitate Him and for everyone around me to be very aware that He is the One I look up to! Christ is my superhero!
