We just watched X-Men – First Class! This X-Men movie went back to the beginning of the saga. Weird, I thought it was the third movie but it’s really the First; did I get that right?
The movie shows young people, called mutants, having special talents like throwing fire balls or screaming sonic sounds. A group of government agents corral all the mutants into a fancy facility. Its really the first time, the mutants have ever been “together” thinking they were the “only” ones with such weirdness.
The young people are placed in a room to get to know each other. At first, the meeting is a little awkward then someone loosens up the group by suggesting they pick out new “Mutant Names” like Banshee, Beast, Havok and Riptide.
Movies are just silliness! But we can live a new life with a new name!
2 Corinthians 5: 17 (NKJV) says: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.
Go ahead! Pick out your New Name! As you transform into Christ’s New Creation; your old life passes away. You are redeemed through Christ! You are forgiven and ready to receive the richness of His grace!
Ephesians 1:7 (NKJV) In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
What name will you pick out?
