Agent Colson’s Not Dead, And So Are You
You may have seen The Avengers by now. If so, there is no need for a spoiler alert. If not, you may want to quit reading if you plan to go see the movie.
In a pivotal scene in the movie, Agent Colson, who has been Nick Fury’s right hand man in gathering all of these heroes together, is killed by Loki. Stabbed through the heart, we watch him die.
There’s just one problem with that scenario.
Agent Colson’s not dead.
I read too many comic books as a kid to believe that he died in that scene.
I don’t know exactly how they will pull it off. That may not have been the real Colson. It may have been a life-like decoy. Maybe someone with a healing power showed up. Somehow, someway, Colson lives.
If you’re a follower of Christ, it’s the same for you. You were dead. He has made you alive. When you die on this earth, it’s a false death. It’s transition time. People are gathering around in sadness, when they should be celebrating. You’re going home. You will soon be more alive than ever.
Agent Colson’s not dead. And so are you.
Are you a follower of Christ? Do you have this eternal life on your side?
