It seems that we have always looked for that super human. Superman, Spiderman, and Bat-man and now we have on TV a hero called the Cape. Fights for goodness and hates evil, upholds the law and always wins the battle for truth and justice.
I was born on Christmas day in 1948 and when I was around 10 years old my hero was Su-perman. I can remember watching it on our black and white TV. It was a very popular show back then and kids like me looked up to this man of steel that was as the advertisement says, "Faster than a speeding bullet, stronger than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound."
I remember one Saturday after watching an episode of Superman I got one of Mama’s bath towels and tied it around my neck like the cape of Superman and would pretend I could fly just like my hero.
I even convinced myself that with this bath towel and faith in Superman I could really fly.
I climbed up in the barn loft and got the courage to test that faith and cape of courage made of cotton and jump from our old barn loft in hopes I could fly.
Guess what, I hit the ground without a scratch or a broken bone. I found out I couldn’t fly to my regret.
You might be thinking right now, I would have never told that on myself. But, think about this if you will. How many of us have put our faith and trust in things besides Christ for our salvation such as our works or our goodness. That’s more ridicules than thinking you can fly.
The Bible says in Acts 4: 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
All through the New Testament tells us that Jesus is the only way. We can’t save ourselves. We could never do enough for God to pay for our sins. No matter how good we think we are we are still dirty rags on our best day.
Isaiah 64:6 6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;
Well, someone might say, "I am such a great person and I give to a lot of things each year and I even visited my neighbor in the hospital last year."
Works without Jesus will get you nowhere with God. Galatians 2:16 16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ.
So, if we can’t be good enough and we can’t work our way to have our sins forgiven and be saved from Hell.
Then, we ask the same question as a man in Acts 16:30 Sirs, what must I do to be saved? It’s the same answer today as it was then.
Acts 16:31 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved,
Accepting Jesus as your Saviour is simple. It’s so simple that millions of people are going to miss it. If you don’t know Him as your Saviour, ask Him into your life today and forgive you of your sins and be the Lord of your life forever more.
Jesus Christ our Lord is much more than a super hero. He is the Saviour of the world.
