A Super Hero Story

Well with everyone in Avengers mood lately I've been really focused on God and all that. (In case you didn't read my last blog, this time has really impacted me. God has odd ways sometimes.) Today I listened to a song called "The Invasion" by one of my favorite artists, Trip Lee. It was so amazing! I've heard the song a billion times but this time it really hit me. It's a rap song about Jesus coming back for us and Him saving the day. I love the picture of Jesus saving the world. Love it. Because I've seen enough Star Wars documentaries, (Yes, I have to bring that into this.) one of the things they say made those movies a hit was the general story line. Because it was so relate able. The story of a princess in trouble and a little farm boy who comes to rescue her. Everything about it was just...classic.
   There are two things that people love in a story that can make it a hit. 1. A hero, and 2. Love. Everyone loves the Avengers. A story about a group of heroes who are amazing and can fight like awesomeness. The special effects and stuff helped, but we love stories of heroes. This all got me thinking about the super hero story I'm in. It goes like this:
   A long time ago, before the earth was made there was this guy. (He was awesome.) and He created the world. He made two people. He told them they could do whatever they wanted....except eat from one tree. Then enters the evil villain with creepy music playing in the background. (this guy isn't anything like Loki. This guys not awesome. At all.) Long story short, he makes the people disobey and then evil enters the world. It's called Sin. Now that everything is messed up the people can't be with their Creator and things are wrong. But He's got a plan. (A very genius one may I add.) Some thousand years later He sends His son. His Son came to save the world. He came and lived as an example. He was a healer and could perform miracles. He was a hero. But one day...He gets killed. He died the most painful death anyone ever could. He was beaten and hung on a cross. Now what? This Hero that everyone thought would save them was now dead. How could this happen? Then comes the part of the story where He heroically comes back alive. He conquered death and saved us when we couldn't save ourselves. But He came for us while we were still His enemies. When we were covered in sin. His love for us was so intense that nothing could stop it. Not even death.
   Jesus is my Hero.
   But unlike any classic super hero story, I'm not the girl who's trapped and in need. I'm the bad guy. I'm the one running from the hero. I'm the one who tried to get it all on my own. Because I thought I was to good. I put myself above them all. Because "I'm good enough. I can do it by myself." In hero stories do you ever see the good guy die to save the villain? No. But that's what happened. I did nothing to earn the love I got. Can you wrap your head around that? The hero died to save me. The villain. That's crazy love. He died for you. For me. For everyone. What an incredible super hero story.
   But it doesn't end there. One day He's coming back and He's going to take everyone who believes in Him and take them home. To be with Him forever in heaven.
   That's my Hero. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around all that. I've known all this for over 8 years and I still can't believe His love for me. Once you put your faith in what He did on the cross and know that that's your only way to heaven, that He saved you, you can go to heaven too. He came to save you.
   I don't know about you but that's the best super hero story I've ever heard.


  1. You have very good points, Faith. I especially like that one paragraph near the end when you talk about how we are the villains, and that the hero died to save us even though we are the bad guys. I never really thought about the Creation/Salvation story in a "superhero" sort of way, but I totally agree with you. Amazing job! :D

  2. Thanks! and thank you for reading:)
