Final thoughts

Forget Batman vs Superman or superhero vs superhero or who you think the greatest superhero is. There is only one true, real life super hero … Jesus Christ!

Most heroes are fictional, meaning they are not real. There are some that are real. Your parents are good example of ones that are real. But the remember Jesus Christ is real and He is alive today. He arose from the dead. He conquered the grave. He is the ultimate superhero. He always will be … Past, Present and Future. He came to save us all from our sin. He over came our sin. Even Kryptonite cannot keep Him away. To us Kryptonite is like sin. It weakens us. He has power over evil. Nothing can stop Jesus. He won. Revelation tells us that. Remember sin brought death.Jesus overcame death and took the victory over sin for us. Jesus gave us eternal life with Him the ultimate sacrifice that no other superhero can do.

Jesus showed loved and courage throughout his Ministry. He knew God’s vision of Him dying for our sins. He did whatever it took to full God’s purpose. He was a servant to others. Jesus also shows characteristics of a hero, but most important He is our Ultimate Superhero. We shouldn’t look to anyone else as a hero, but Him. He did the most ultimate sacrifice for us. He gave Himself.
