Lessons from Chadwick Boseman

Lessons from Chadwick Boseman

September 26, 2020

Christ tells us in John 16:33 in this world we will have tribulations, but to be of good cheer, because He has overcome the world. So, what does this mean for us? It means we have victory in Christ! We are empowered with the divine within, but we have to act on it.

There will be curve balls pitched our way and it’s left up to us how we respond to those times. We have to deal with the good and the bad. And in so doing, we have a responsibility to take action and use the gifts, talents and insight God gives each of us. I’ve been giving this a lot of thought with all that has been going on during these unprecedented times—the good and the bad. And, Chadwick Boseman continued to come to my mind. He’s become a spiritual giant for me. His life on and off screen continues to impact me.

Here we have a young man battling stage 3 colon cancer for four year, as it advanced to stage 4, and we would never have known it had it not come out at the end of his life.

I heard a tribute given to Chadwick and from it I took away the lessons below:

Chadwick did not relinquish; he did not shrink back from his sickness. He kept living, acting and supporting others. Let us not relinquish or shrink back while in our battles. Hebrews 10:39 says we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.

Chadwick did not let his sickness dominate him; he chose to push on even while undergoing treatments and whatever else accompanies the battle with colon cancer. We too get to choose what kind of person we want to be to glorify God. Let’s show off for the Lord like Brother Boseman. Hebrews 11:1 says faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Let these lessons from Chadwick Boseman build our spiritual strength as we continue to use our gifts and talents for the glory of God, in the good and bad times. Let us not relinquish or shrink back while in our battles and let us not allow our sickness, pain, or distress dominate us.
