When Buzz Lightyear met Jesus

Can you spot the character who seems out of place in this nativity scene?

Buzz ended up in the Nativity scene following a recent family activity at the church. As I picked him up, I must have pressed a button (by accident honest!) because he said something like ‘quick, I need to save the galaxy’.

If Buzz or anyone else thinks that THEY need to fix and rescue everything by themselves after meeting with and following  Jesus then they really don’t understand who Jesus is t all!

Buzz has the ambition to go to ‘infinity and beyond’ which is ironic because Jesus has always existed in infinity and beyond but he chose to come down to Earth by becoming human. Jesus left infinity and beyond behind so that he could become our saviour.

Are we willing to let Jesus save us? Will we follow him and let him transform our lives as we do so?

If we feel like we need to be everyone’s saviour, are we willing to let that go in order to join with and to play our part following Jesus as he saves the world?

May we all receive the gift of Jesus as the saviour of the world this Christmas time.
