Who Needs Superheros?

Good evening readers! I have wanting to write the following post for about a week now, but never really have thought it was that great to post. So if you get confused about what I am trying to say, it isn’t you.

The title of this post basically says it all. Over the past several years, well even decades, superhero movies and even the idea of superheros have been really popular in the media. From Batman to Spiderman, most are loved by all. Why is that?

Is is because we as a human race long for good to fight evil and prevail? Is it that fairytale feeling of the hero rescuing the maiden in distress? WHAT?

If you really think about it, Jesus was a superhero in his own right. He was a great humanitarian; a healer; a person of knowledge, etc.. I could go on and on. The evil in the world made him an outcast, but people still followed him.

What sparked this post was the song by Abandon called Hero. If you aren’t familiar with the song, below are the lyrics to the song. Click here to listen to the song. This describes Jesus so well.

The question I want to ask of you this evening is..

Is Jesus your superhero?

Hero — by Abandon

He walked the dirty streets. Famous for nothing.
He said “come follow me” and they came.
A face like all the rest.
But something was different.
The Son of God would lead the way.
And soon they all would say.

There He goes – a hero. A savior to the world.
Here He stands with scars in His hands.
With love He gave His life so we could be free.
The Savior of the world.

He spoke with clarity. Walked across the sea.
A single word would calm the storm.
His touch could heal the sick, but He was called a hypocrite.
Laid behind the stone. His death was shortly mourned. He left the curtain torn.

There He goes – a hero. A savior to the world.
Here He stands with scars in His hands.
With love he gave His life so we could be free.
The Savior of the world.

He chose to take the cross. Shed tears for the lost, the broken, and the needy.
Forgiving those who were and will be.
The angel made it clear. He told them have no fear.
He’s not here. He’s not here!

There He goes – The Hero. The Savior to the world.
Here He stands with scars in His hands.
With love He gave his life so we could be free.
The Savior of the world. The Savior of the world. The Savior of the world.

  2. He is my Hero, not enough people use this hero daily. I strive to ask my hero for help and guidance. I have to get out of the habit of only calling on Him in time of need. He wants me and us to use him through out the daily travels.
