Our Savior, The Super God Man of Steel
Â Â Â Â Every generation has looked for a superhero to save their souls from certain peril.Â These days, we look everywhere, from Spiderman to Superman.Â Yet God already sent us such a heroâ€”God Himselfâ€”bearing the body of a mere Man.
Â Â Â Â Yes, even though He was SuperMan, Jesus donned the face of the familiar when He walked through this wicked world of ours.Â He left His throne and enrobed Himself in carpenter's clothing.Â He chose to be homely, not comely, in appearance, so people would hear His message, not admire the Messenger.Â He chose not to be a career man, but to be a lowly carpenter.Â He walked many miles with calloused feet to bring the good news to people who were used to hearing bad news.Â He fed thousands with nothing but a few loaves of bread and a few fishes. Â He cried when others sighed.Â Â In fact, He performed a myriad of miracles, too many to mention here.
Â Â Â Â He died a dreadful death, so we wouldnâ€™t have to.Â Yes, as God in the flesh, He doffed His splendid spirit to don the body of men and women just like you and me.Â And yes, He even, burped, spat, and farted.Â In short, He became the epitome of all that is human, so He could save our souls.Â And as SuperMan, He saved way more souls than Superman ever did!
Â Â Â Â Sadly, most of the world doesnâ€™t recognize that a Super Hero has already been given to us by God Himselfâ€”Jesus Christ!Â Yes, that Jesus, who walked on water, stilled violent storms, demanded that the dead should rise, gave life to limping limbs, opened the eyes of the eyeless, gave mouths to the mute, and dealt with demons possessing people from all walks of lifeâ€”casting those sinful creatures back into the cracked walls of the abyss.Â Now can Superman with all his supernatural capabilities do all that?!
Â Â Â Â Notttttt!!!
Â Â Â Â Yes, my friends, Jesus Christ is the true SuperMan we seek.Â SuperManâ€¦SuperGodâ€¦
Â Â Â Â Kryptonite canâ€™t kill Him.Â Neither could the cross.Â He now lives and reigns in eternity, and yet is still at home in the hearts of believers everywhere.Â Again I ask, is Superman able to do that?Â Nope.Â Christ even conferred on us the capability to perform greater feats then He did when He plodded this planet 2000 years ago.
Â Â Â Â And He is still SuperMan today.Â If we need a miracle, Heâ€™s the Man for the job.Â If we are sick, He alone has the sensitivity to comfort or even cast that sickness from us.Â If we feel terribly lonely, He is right there beside us, holding our hands, hugging our hearts.Â Superman is on TV once or twice a yearâ€”and He is fiction, not fact.Â But Jesus Christ is here for us as many years as we haveâ€”fact, not fiction.Â And He is here for us for keepsâ€¦through sickness, sorrow, sin, and strife.
Â Â Â Â On earth, our Savior was the true Man of steel in that He set His face like flint as He willingly walked to Jerusalem, knowing full well His destiny there was deathâ€”the death we should have died.Â Thatâ€™s how much of a SuperHero He was and is.Â He had the power to stop a speeding bulletâ€”the bullets of temptation the wicked one targeted at Him when He was weak in the wilderness.Â He was and is still able to leap over tall buildings in that He seems to redeem the most unlikely people.Â And like Superman, He can even stop a speeding train; that is, He can tear to tatters the temptations assailing us when we ask Him to.
Â Â Â Â Yes, the world wants a Hero, but it wonâ€™t recognize that One has already come.Â And still lives.Â We need look no further than our Fatherâ€™s Son Jesus Christâ€”the SuperManGod!Â So super, He makes Superman look like Samson with His hair cut off.Â So super, He makes the devil seem like a diminished and comical dervish.Â So super, in fact, He puts lifeâ€™s hurts, habits, and hang-ups into their proper perspectiveâ€”as chances to learn from and grow up to become superheros such as He.
Â Â Â Â Talk about Super!
Â Â Â Â Jesus Christ is Super, man, period!
