The Red In Our Lives

“I’ve got red in my ledger, and I’d like to wipe it out.”
-Natasha Romanoff, The Avengers
Just as the Black Widow has “red in her ledger”, we all have sin in our lives. Jesus is the only one who can wipe it out. We can’t do it on our own.

Is He Dead Or Not?

Caution: There may be a few spoilers in this post, or, if you’re like Sherlock Holmes, you could deduce spoilers from things I say in this post. Just sayin’.

Have you ever noticed that it’s impossible to believe that people are actually dead in superhero movies?

I’ll admit that the same problem occurs in other movies, too, and in books fairly often. Or is that just my imagination? It’s not.

Sherlock Holmes, for example. He “died” in the books, and he “died” on the BBC Sherlock show (Which I have not watched, but I know quite a bit about thanks to a few friends. *wink* And a past post I reblogged.)

And then, of course, there’s all those minor characters in the superhero movies that supposedly die but don’t. Sometimes main characters, too, like Captain America, although we know that something’s up from the beginning of the movie. You can almost never believe that people are actually dead in those movies.

But you know what’s cool? That’s happened in real life before, too! All those people that are raised from the dead, like Lazarus. (We don’t know the names of most of them.) But the best coming-back-to-life episode? Jesus.

Unlike in superhero movies, Jesus really died. And then he came back to life. He conquered our sin by suffering the worst death the Romans could invent, and then he rose again, conquering death itself. He love us that much.

 

I’m Back!

If you’ve been wondering about the lack of post the past week, I apologize. I have been at my grandparents’ house, while my computer has been at our house. And with a non-smart phone (aka a dumb phone) I have not been able to post. As I missed Superhero Sunday, I’ll be posting it today, instead. 😉
