The Greatest Superhero

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross! Philippians 2:5-8

Everyone loves a hero. This is evident when we witness the popularity of the Marvel-inspired movies like Spiderman, Iron Man, and The Incredible Hulk. Many of us are drawn to these icons of courage and goodwill. The hero always comes out on top, always defeats the enemy.

They are bigger than life. Stronger, faster, braver. Christ is also a Hero – the greatest Hero of all. Yes, He has “super powers”. Yes, He is the ultimate Victor. But the greatest attribute that this God-man displayed was His emptying of Himself.

When He laid down His life for the human race. He, who was and is God, became servant of all. And Jesus said the greatest among you would be your servant (Matthew23:11).

The comic books are full of superhuman beings that conquer the world. They are fictitious, but we serve a God who is 100% real. He is Almighty, All Powerful and yet he humbled Himself for our behalf. He who knew no sin became sin for us all. He paid the price of death on a cross so that we would not have to. Three days after He died, the great power of the Lord was unleashed; He rose from the dead.

He secured a place in heaven for those who will accept His forgiveness. His word says that all of us have sinned and fall short of His glory. We deserve to be doomed to an eternity of spiritual darkness. But Jesus, took the bullet for our sin. He suffered, died, and victoriously rose again from the grave! If you haven't embraced Christ's forgiveness, - forgiveness from the greatest hero who ever lived, and who died and lives again - come and pray this prayer....

Dear Almighty God,

Thank you for sending Jesus, the greatest Hero of all, to die in my place. I admit that I am a sinner, that I need Your powerful forgiveness. I believe You rose from the dead. Lord, I surrender all to You. I receive your forgiveness, and I choose to serve you all of my days. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

If you prayed this prayer from your heart, you have been born again. You have been given a place in heaven, and you have been adopted into God's family. Here are some helpful hints to aid you in your growth as a new believer.

  • Read the Bible – it is food for the soul.
  • Pray – Talk to your Heavenly Father. He is Your Friend and He will talk to you as well.
  • Start attending a Spirit-filled church that teaches the word of God.
  • Tell others about your newfound relationship with Jesus.

Congratulations! This is the most important day of your life. Remember always that God loves you. He will never leave you or forsake you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at
