A super hero is always the one who “saves the day”. Everyone looks to him when there is trouble. He is the one who fights evil and he wins every time.
A super hero puts his life before others and some how never dies… in most “movies” at least.
He is the defender of all that is good! He is the first one on the scene! He brings a peace like no on else!
Dictionary.com defines Superhero as: a hero, especially in children’s comic books and television cartoons, possessing extraordinary, often magical powers.
When you think of Jesus what comes to your mind? It may be “I’m not sure what I think” or it may be “He is my super hero”!
For me HE is more than just a super hero… HE is MY hero! He has saved my life from sin, HE has created me to do great things, HE is my everything.
The Bible says in Exodus 3:13-14 “Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?” And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ “
Jesus is always the first one on my scene when I am in need. HE put his life on the line and lost it for me! Then HE rose again! Jesus is more than just a comic book, movie or TV show “super-hero”. He is my super-natural best friend. HIS love is REAL…He is a real life story!
Jesus came out of love.
John 3:16 says: “For God so LOVED the world that HE gave HIS one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.”
As mentioned earlier, the super hero in the movie never dies… my real life Super Hero gave HIS life for us.
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13
If you are looking for man to be your “super hero”, you will never find him. For the true life super HERO is Jesus.
I encourage you today to give Jesus a chance to SAVE you! To come to your rescue! Whatever you need today, Jesus’ response is “I Am!”.
“I AM the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” John 10:9
Today, you can authentically love someone else because the most authentic love first loved you!
