You Need to See Chadwick Boseman Do This Better Than Black Panther

One thing will stand out as obvious after you see this speech–watch it in its entirety. Chadwick Boseman was taken from this world too soon. Too soon for us, but with an impeccably perfect timing known only to those who can see the whole picture.

There’s a short clip flinging around the Internet of Boseman giving a commencement address. “When God has something for you it doesn’t matter who stands against it,” Boseman said in the clip, which cuts between the speech and Boseman’s role as Black Panther in the Marvel films. The clip is great, but its’ not the whole picture.

There’s so much more Boseman had to say to graduates of Howard University, his alma mater. He spoke about climbing to mountaintops, college struggles, inflection points in life, and most poignantly, purpose.

God’s purpose.

Black Panther is a superhero from a fictional super land, with super materials, technology, and ability. Chadwick Boseman is so much more than that, because he has caught on to, and speaks the wisdom of, the unstoppable purpose of God our Creator.

Watch, and keep some tissues handy, along with your Bible, although many of you will know the verses by heart.
