In the latest X-Men movie, the X-Men have to fight. They fight for a world where they can be in the mix with everyone else, even if they are not the same. The world doesn’t want that; the world doesn’t like people who are different. But the X-Men fight for it – because it’s best for the world and for them.
Jesus wants us to be like that – in the mix with everyone else, but not the same – connected to him, fighting together with Jesus for a better world. Jesus calls it being salt and light – essential for life, and making it better.
Get in the mix, but don’t be the same as everyone else.
