Light for All

 (May 2005 DC Comics). 
I have loved super heroes for as long as I could remember.  I watched the original Superman (yes, the one starring George Reeves),  read Spiderman comics, and made believe I was Wonder Woman.

Our theme this week is Green. Could I really write a post using a comic book hero and relate it to this Holy Week leading up to Easter?

Let's give it a try!

As a child I was fascinated by the thought of imagining an object into reality and the super heroes known as Green Lanterns had this power!  Any weapon needed to fight the bad guy was at his disposal. All he ever had to do was think it and BAM! There it was. His options were limitless!

It was an exciting prospect to be called to be a Green Lantern but you had to be deemed worthy. Once you accepted your call you would be granted a ring which needed to be connected to the source of power (known as Will) and pledge your oath,


"...and I shall shed my light over dark evil.
For the dark things cannot stand the light,
The light of the Green Lantern!"
 
Oh to be called because you are found worthy and to wear the mark of your power, to be known by your light!

But that is just a comic book and the dreams of a child.
Today I have a book filled with accounts of heroes and heroines whose worth came from the One who called. This book tells me of a Man who came into darkness to bring Light for all to see.  This book tells me there is a Man who made me worthy by shedding His blood and dying on a Cross. This book tells me this Man called me and the same power that raised Him from the dead is the same power available to me.

This Man’s name is Jesus. HE is Light and in Him there is no darkness (1 John 1).
He has called me and you. He has made us worthy. Plug into His Will and discover the limitless possibilities He has laid out...all of which far surpass any dreams we may have ever had.
