DIG for Wednesday the 23rd of March…..a real Super Hero…..Romans 5 v 7

Thanks to Sean for another DIG today…..

You cannot help but notice that there is a plethora of superhero movies around at the moment.

Heroes fighting heroes over ideologies, it seems to be in our psyche.

The ancient Greeks and Romans had stories of their Gods and the need for heroes.

Whether based on ancient myth or modern comic books we have in our psyche the need for a hero and a saviour.

Men have tried creating archetypes in red and black but usually those who have to be saved are on the whole innocent.

There have been quandaries for heroes as they decide to save someone, but they save people nonetheless.

But all these are fictional super heroes.

Two thousand years ago there was a real hero at work.

If he had a super hero name he would have just been called ‘Saviour ‘or in the Greek ‘Sozo’.

He was the one that was a true Saviour and what is more He died for all so that all could no longer be trapped in their sin.

His archenemies were ‘Sin’ and ‘Death’ and one known as ‘The Accuser’ (Satan).

He (our hero) had no red cape nor did he wear a mask but He had a remit from the God of Love and died for each and every one of us.

A real hero, in real time and not a myth but a true man and true God; His name was Jesus.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you God for saving me and setting me free for real, thank you that are not a myth and that all pales into insignificance because of what you did”.

Romans 5 v 7…..For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die
