When I was a very young child Voltron was a cartoon that aired for one year then hit the syndication circuit.
The story is about a team of unique yet plain individuals that are exploring space together. The team comes to a planet under siege from and evil force. Once they arrive the are given the keys to machines in the form of lions that like themselves are all unique in their mechanical talents. These machines also possess the ability to connect with each other to form Voltron-the most powerful thing in the universe.
My kids and I are reliving these shows together by the grace of DVD. We are also playing with a replica toy from my childhood.
A picture of Christ & his Church-
I realized when I rekindle my love from my early childhood, I saw a reflection of Jesus and His Church in Voltron. I share it with the children every time we watch the DVD or play with the toy.
The Voltron Force team are all unique in there backgrounds, talents, looks, etc. When they gather together as a group they are much more effective in getting to a common goal. When this group connects as they command their lions they become the most powerful thing in their universe.
Each member has their own lion. The lion in the cartoon is like the Lord's Spirit in our individual lives. We are in and around His spirit and we can choose to be in and around Him by our free will.
When the lions connect they form an unstoppable being. This is just like our gathering together in Spirit with the purpose being one mind. The body we become in our connectedness is also an unstoppable force, that force is Christ displaying Himself through His Bride called ekklesia.
The Ekklesia looks similar to the picture, different functions, full of color, many lives that move as one Life......The Life of Christ.
