Guardians... Of The Galaxy..?

There's a great song by Ben Cantelon which is called 'Guardian'. It's about the fact that God is our guardian. This isn't like a guardian that some people get when they're young - that kind of guardian is like a nanny! Nor is God a newspaper - although he always has something to say to us that's good news!!

But God is a guardian because he is our protector, the one who looks after his people and defends them. He's a guardian in the sense that he is the King of the Galaxy!

1 Peter 2:25 - Once you were like sheep who wandered away. But now you have turned to your Shepherd, the Guardian of your souls.

Psalm 118:26 - Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord; We have blessed you from the house of the Lord [you who come into His sanctuary under His guardianship].

What the Bible says (from The Message version)

Psalm 121:3-4 - He won’t let you stumble, your Guardian God won’t fall asleep. Not on your life! Israel’s Guardian will never doze or sleep.

Your general Guardian mission

God is like the King of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

But did you know that you have a role to play. If you know God, then he has chosen you to be one of the guardians of the galaxy. You have a role to play in helping defeat evil and bring God's love, his justice and his kingdom. God is asking you if you will step out and be a guardian - a good, God guardian.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is as simple as Matthew 22.37-38 and the words of Jesus:

1. To love God with all your heart, your soul, your mind.

2. To love other people as you would want to be loved.

After this, your mission will be unique to the skills and gifts and passions that God has put in your heart!

In the movie, 'Guardians of the Galaxy', five very different people (some who have criminal records) band together as a team and fight evil. The great thing about God is that he doesn't look at your past mistakes and failures - he says that when we say sorry to him, he forgets them. There will be lessons you will need to learn but God is in the business of using people like you and me with all our failings and using us to bring good and change and hope to the world.

1 Corinthians 1.27 - But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

(Taken from - http://marvel.com/characters/list/991/core_team_members)

Here are the characters from the movie, Guardians of the Galaxy... they are all different but they all play their part in bringing justice and defeating evil.

Star-Lord - In addition, Star-Lord is highly athletic, a skilled marksman and swordsman, and proficient at hand-to-hand combat. After overcoming his lifetime of hatred, Star-Lord took a vow to never take another life unless absolutely necessary. He also has cybernetic-implants.

Drax - Drax possesses a variety of super-human powers that utilize the cosmic energy bestowed upon his artificially created form by Kronos and Mentor (Alars), Mentor, including superhuman strength and durability.

Gamora - Gamora is a highly accomplished athlete, gymnast, and hand-to-hand combatant.

Groot - Groot was extremely powerful and resilient, he has the power or regeneration allowing him to re-grow limbs and even his entire form. He also has powers of the mind, although they only appear to work on plant life

Rocket Raccoon - Rocket has many of the same abilities as a normal raccoon, such as a heightened sense of smell and sight as compared to a human.

Your Unique Guardian Mission

When we think of who God is as our Guardian and when we think that we are all different and yet together as God's people, we can think about what unique mission we each have!

Finally

God has a mission for you. Are you ready to say yes to him and say, 'here I am God, use me.' ?

If you are, do something now to respond. You may want to stand up or put your hand on your heart or just whisper to God, "here I am, send me."

And be ready to be used by God and just know that God may send you to do different kinds of things and there is often a price to pay. But don't be afraid or worried - God knows you, loves you, will never leave you and has a very good plan for you! God is good!
