contemporaneous notes

1st Sunday in Lent

“Jesus is our superhero”

-         Mystery Box – Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Scooby Doo
and a candy cane

-         candy cane
o   The candy cane reminds us of Christmas, when we celebrate the birth of Jesus
o   A superhero was born to us
o   He alone can wipe away all of our sins with His blood.

-         Hulk
o   Like the Hulk, we are like Bruce Banner, mild mannered, maybe a little weak
o   When we get upset, we are like the Hulk
o   Through Jesus, even when we are weak, we can become strong with Godly muscles

-         Captain America
o   Captain America fights for justice.
o   We have the love letter of the Bible which shows us Godly justice.
o   We are to fight for God’s truth, God’s justice.

-         Iron Man
o   Iron Man has a suit of armor and
o   We are reminded to put on the armor of God
§  put on the belt of Truth
§  shoe our feet in the Gospel of Grace
§  put on the breastplate of Righteousness
§  wear the helmet of Salvation
§  we carry the shield of Faith to protect us from everything
§  and we wield the sword of the Spirit, which is God’s Word.

-         Scooby Doo
o   Scooby Doo is Shaggy’s sidekick
o   God gives us a sidekick, the Holy Spirit of God
o   We never walk alone
o   The Spirit speaks to us, guides us to fight for truth, justice, and the Godly way.

-         Prayer
