What have all these fictional characters have in common? Yes, they’re all superheroes.
When we watch a film or a TV show with superheroes, have you noticed how when they overcome the gangsters or villains, everyone is very happy and it makes us happy too.
Could it be that the world is simply looking for a real-life superhero?
We need not look very far for a real superhero, as when you consider the criteria which define a superhero, Jesus satisfies everyone of them. If anything, Jesus did more than any superhero could ever do, He was born of a virgin, died on a cross and then rose again.
But Jesus isn’t just a superhero, He’s a saviour and a friend…He’s my saviour and my friend, and He wants to be you saviour and friend too, and all you need to do is ask Him!Never a Better Hero by Kenneth Cope Making His home with the lonely Spending His days with the poor Bring hope to their hearts Giving man a new start with His cure But not all would receive of His offering Some even planned His decease Yet He couldn’t forsake Those whose lives He might save So He refused to leave (Chorus) Never a better hero Never a truer man Hopin‘ to save us By taking our pain in His hands Never a greater compassion Never a wasted day Not one regret, true to the end There was never a better way Now He knew His life would be shortened But never murmured a word of complaint For He had in mind A much greater design And it helped Him through the pain He gave men power to take Him Knowing His death would bring life And it was no surprise There was love in His eyes when He died (Chorus) But death was not the end For He would live again (Chorus) All that He did Follow and live There’ll be never a better way
