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 ultimate superhero … Jesus Christ! Most superheroes are fictional, meaning they are not real. There are some that are real. Your parents are good example of ones that are real. Even those who help in times of emergencies. Like John Harper, known as the Last Titanic Hero. But this blog post isn’t about heroes or superheroes … It’s about the Ultimate Superhero … Jesus Christ!

Kryptonite

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. He gave us eternal life with Him through the ultimate sacrifice that no other superhero can do.

Jesus Is Real and Alive

Remember Jesus Christ is real and He is alive today. He arose from the dead and conquered the grave.  Jesus Christ is the ultimate superhero and He always will be … Past, Present and Future. He came to save us all from our sin because He didn’t sin and he over came sin. Jesus actually took our sin on the Cross for us.  Jesus showed loved and courage throughout his Ministry. He knew God’s vision of Him dying for our sins. Jesus did whatever it took to full God’s purpose. He was a servant to others. Jesus also shows characteristics of a superhero, but most important He is our Ultimate Superhero. We shouldn’t look to anyone else as a superhero, but Him. He did the most ultimate sacrifice for us. He gave Himself.
