Puny Little god
One of my favorite scene in the movie Avengers was when Loki declared he was GOD!!! Hulk then got him, smashed him to the ground and told him PUNY LITTLE GOD!!!!
In a lot of ways we are like LOKI. Wanting to be our own god. Wanting to rule the world. And in our finite mind we think we can be god. It has been the lie since the beginning.
Genesis 3:4-5 New International Version (NIV)
4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
“Eat this fruit and you will be like god” and surprisingly we always give in to the enticement of godhood.
“Nobody tells me what I need to do”, “I am the captain of my own ship”, “I am god”
The lines we used reveals the LOKI inside of us. And every time I get into the mode of running my life and acting like god, the Holy Spirit gives me the Spirit Smash.
BOOM, BAM, BOOM, BAM!!!!! Puny Little god.
