((Extraordinary or superhuman –also, an exceptionally skillful or successful person.))
We love watching SUPER HERO SHOWS. This week, my kids and I watched The Avengers. I know, we are way behind on our movie watching. It’s an “old” movie now especially with IRON MAN 3 coming out just yesterday. Anyway, the movie had great effects and it was a neat story of good overcoming evil. We have a few favorite parts like any movie we watch together. One of the parts was when the Hulk took the evil guy pretty much by his feet and threw him around like a rag doll. It was a little comical and totally surreal, of course, but still one of the highlights of the movie. We like it, I believe, mostly because, it was a scene where the good (altho a huge green monster) Hulk was basically putting the bad guy in his place–literally. We love it when GOOD OVERCOMES EVIL!
Sometimes I wish there were no evil to overcome at all, but I know that no matter what, it’s inevitable. I do not claim to be a realist EVER, but deep down, I know what “real” is. We have real things that come on us. It may not be as crazy wicked and evil as some alien self-proclaimed god like in the movie we watched, but at times, it seems pretty close. We have things like disloyal friends, rebellious children, mean bosses, forks in the road, sickness, illness, and the list goes on and on. We are surrounded by gossips, murders and basic spawns of the devil himself. I’m just saying, we come up against evil all the time. The devil gets in and stirs his pot of nasty in our daily lives.
My post today is mostly a proclamation of how we can overcome evil much better if we have a SUPER HERO on our side. I’m not talking about the big green guy although if you could keep him from destroying your house, that would be pretty cool. I’m talking about the ONE TRUE SUPER HERO who no matter what happens, is there to win your battles. He’s there to calm you and give you the peace that surpasses any peace we will ever find in this world. He knows what you are going through whether it be small, medium, large or those -on occasion- SUPER SIZE moments of despair. HE ALWAYS HAS THE VICTORY! You cannot find true victories and keep victory in your possession without Him. Sure, you can feel happiness or peace to some extent, but without this SUPER HERO in your heart, you cannot feel it to it’s most largest and fullest extent. How can you know how true peace is? –ONLY with this SUPER HERO…
Yes, it is true, JESUS doesn’t have a cape on with a big S on the front of His chest. This picture probably doesn’t even represent Him in His true physical appearance. We all have our mental imagine of Him. I kind of picture Him as The Hulk with longer hair, not so green and definitely MUCH less angry. haha! You picture Him as you will…but KNOW FOR SURE, without this SUPER HERO–you will never OVERCOME this world!
