Super powers need not apply — #1word5voices #40days #powers

Make a super hero movie, make millions of dollars.  Truckloads.

day 10 - powersSuper hero movies are popular because DUH we love thinking about what it would be like to kick evil butt up and down.  Who hasn’t thought about what super powers would you love to have?  [I know you’ve thought about it!]

The Kingdom of God doesn’t need super powers like invisibility, teleportation, or shooting spikes out of your arms.  The power of the Resurrected Christ is enough.  Jesus has conquered death, sin, selfishness, evil, and running out of guacamole at Chipotle.  It’s just a matter of time until all of those things are but a distant memory.

No Other Name” by Hillsong is a beautiful ode to Jesus and all the power He has.  He has the power to hold the universe together, to redeem us from ourselves, and to love us to the end of time.

One name /  Holds weight above them all
His fame / Outlasts the earth He formed
His praise / Resounds beyond the stars
And echoes in our hearts
The greatest One of all His face
Shines brighter than the sun
His grace / As boundless as His love
He reigns / With healing in His wings
The King above all kings
The greatest One of all
Lift up our eyes, see the King has come
Light of the world reaching out for us
There is no other name
There is no other name
Jesus Christ our God
Seated on high, the undefeated One
Mountains bow down as we lift Him up
There is no other name
There is no other name
Jesus Christ our God
Find hope
When all the world seems lost
Behold
The triumph of the cross
His power
Has trampled death and grave
Our life found in His name
The greatest name of all
Lift up our eyes, see the King has come
Light of the world reaching out for us
There is no other name
There is no other name
Jesus Christ our God
The earth will shake
And tremble before Him
Chains will break
As heaven and earth sing
Holy is the name
Holy is the name of
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
