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!
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 Christ...now 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!
