Endgame has been one of the most anticipated movie of the year. The character build up, the well
thought and planned story lines, with closure for each of the characters have left viewers leaving the
cinema with a sense of emotional lost and awe if not kinda teary eyed.
The journey through this movie and the ones before reminded me about life as a follower of Christ.
We can see that even the unbelieving world to a certain degree able to comprehend what’s right
and what’s wrong, allowing us to learn and picks example from our daily life.
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the
things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,”
(Romans 1:20)
As Job also said in Chapter 12, “But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; And the birds of the
air, and they will tell you; 8 Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; And the fish of the sea will
explain to you. 9 Who among all these does not know That the hand of the Lord has done this, 10 In
whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?”
We might ask why things have to happen in a certain way, and not according to what we think is
best. But the answer lies within God’s promise and perfect plan, His sovereignty and His omniscient.
Definitely way more omniscient than the famous Dr. Strange who has seen 14,000,605 futures. Even
though it seems dark and hopeless at times, and we are only left with nothing but unanswered
questions, we know the only answer that matters. There is only one way for truth. There is only one
way for peace. There is only one way for a blessed life which leads to eternal life. There is only one
perfect love.
As people of Christ, it is important to understand our endgame. Endgame is defined as the final stage
of some action or process, or in Chess game, the stage of the game when few pieces are left on the
board and the outcome is usually known. The question is, are we prepared for it? Have we led our
life worthy for a victorious endgame or have we been careless with our daily activities that seems
to be pointless? Our attitude in the waiting is always important. Using our time to be a blessing for
others and deepen our knowledge of Christ, or do we choose to be drowned in our own problems
and sorrows, swaying ourselves and our vision further from God.
Know that God always works everything for good for those who love Him. If we can manage to be
emotionally attached to a fictional character who sacrificed his life for a fictional purpose, then how
can we not be grateful for The One who actually died for our sin? How can we not be a number one
fan of our Lord Jesus Christ who has humbled Himself as a servant and even died for the sake of you
and I that don’t even deserve it? If we can actually grasp the extend of that sacrifice and His love, far
from (spoiler alert) what Tony Stark did, then we should have the ultimate desire to live this life not
to disappoint Him anymore, not to waste His sacrifice and let Him down anymore. We would live this
life rejoicing, sharing His testimony of kindness to one another every chance we are given.
Therefore, let’s wait boldly and faithfully, knowing that we are never ever alone in this fight.
“6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your
requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will
guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
