I John 4:14 “And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.”
A few weeks ago, movie blockbuster Justice League was released in theaters featuring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. These superheros are given the responsibility for saving the world from an alien invasion. As a part of the pre-movie hype, Ben Affleck who plays Batman stated the following: “We certainly are in need of heroes in 2017. There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world, from natural to man-made disasters, and it’s really scary.” Affleck went on to say: “Part of the appeal of this genre is wish fulfillment: Wouldn’t it be nice if there was somebody who can save us from all this, save us from ourselves, save us from the consequences of our actions and save us from people who are evil?”
Ben Affleck is right, and fortunately there is.
As we enter the Christmas season, we should be ever-mindful that God sent his Son to be the Saviour of the world. He fulfilled our wishes. He met our need for a hero.
In light of the scary stuff that’s going on in the world, from natural to man-made disasters, God sent us someone who can save us from all this; who can save us from people who are evil. Most importantly, He sent us someone who can save us from ourselves; who can save us from the consequences of our actions. Jesus was sent to do it all.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICAN CHRISTIANS TO RELY UPON THE REAL SUPERHERO – JESUS CHRIST! God sent him to us to be our Saviour, the only Saviour!
