My daughter’s favorite Marvel movie is Captain Marvel. She loves the story, the space theme, and especially the Flerken (if you don’t know, go see it). I think the thing about this movie is that it’s weird, different, and pulls us away from the expected normal of our world.
Is this how you see the work of God? Does God amaze you? Are you filled with wonder when you read scripture?
In the same way our eyes are drawn up by huge skyscrapers, for the people of the ancient world, building seemed like impossibilities. Imagine the temple in Jerusalem, built by hand, towering over the people as they gathered for worship.
What God has built seems impossible, this is how the early followers of Jesus saw this verse that inspired them as they reflected on Jesus. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus was a marvel like nothing they had experienced. It caused them to think of the world in ways they never could have imagined.
Be in awe of God today. Read and reflect on his greatness, and be drawn to see the marvelous work of God!
