Of Batman and Blessings

And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” Exodus 3:14 (NKJV)

One summer evening our son Jacob came home from the gym and exclaimed, “You’ll never guess who I worked out with today!”

Knowing that he was correct, I would never be able to guess, I responded, “Who?”

“Michael Keaton!” beamed Jacob. For those familiar with movies, Michael Keaton played Batman in the 1989 and 1992 Batman and Batman Returns flicks, among other roles.

Wow, Batman, the rescuer of Gotham City, the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, the Joker’s archenemy, was right here in our little town, working out at the gym. My son’s “brush with greatness” rubbed off on us all that evening.

Later, while I was washing the dinner dishes, I smiled, thinking about my son’s Batman encounter.  But then, my smile grew as I realized that every day I have TEA with Jesus, the Creator of the Universe, the Redeemer of the world, the King of kings and Lord of lords, Satan’s archenemy. And when we are together, it is more than just a brush with greatness.  Jesus is the GREAT I AM,  And He spends all day and night with me.  He hears all my prayers and pours into me His Word and Holy Spirit.

And while my son may wonder if he’ll bump into Batman again at the gym, I know for a fact that Jesus will meet me for TEA everyday. Wow! What an honor and blessing.

Today’s TEA CUPP: Jesus is ready to meet you, too, dear TEA CUPP friend!  God’s Word promises that He is there knocking at your door.  Just open the door and invite Jesus in for TEA every morning.  Read His Word the Bible and chat with Him about whatever is on your heart. You will have more than a brush with greatness!

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20 (NKJV)
