Super Powers

Sunday 14 May 2017
Week 5 – Patience
Duncan Banks

Super Powers: you have them—now it’s time to activate them!

Who’s your favourite superhero: Batman? Wonder Woman? Superman? And what is the superpower they possess that you’d just love to have at your disposal? Flying faster than a speeding bullet? Leaping over tall buildings? Or is it just that you’d love to go to work in a shiny red cape (and wearing your underpants on the outside?)

We all love super heroes don’t we? The bible says that each one of us has some special powers in us that actually make us extraordinary. And these powers are greater than anything you see in the movies. The bible calls them the ‘fruit of the spirit’.

THIS WEEK: We live in an instant world. We want everything now. And if we are made to wait, we get angry. Even though we know that marinated chicken tastes so much better! But waiting can become an expectant patience. It’s a patience that says, “I don’t know what God is going to do, but I know God is going to do something.” So here is a prayer for those of us who want to choose to wait and be patience today: I will overlook the inconveniences of the world. Instead of cursing the one who takes my place, I’ll invite him to do so. Rather than complain that the wait is too long, I will thank God for a moment to pray. Instead of clinching my fist at new assignments, I will face them with joy and courage.
