I love the superhero movies that seem to come out every year. Captain Marvel comics created great stories with supernatural heroes that always save the day and overcome evil. Hebrews 11 gives us list of great superheroes of Faith. These guys and gals demonstrated faith in God, forsaking everything familiar and of normal routine. Verse 1 tells us “faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see”. Our superheroes had faith in God when the world was telling them something different. This is even without the Bible. They believed by faith ALONE. They heard from God and believed what He said and that it was Him. Noah, Moses (and his parents), Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Rahab, Gideon, David and the prophets are just a few superheroes whose lives demonstrate great faith and total dependence on God’ directions. They weren’t perfect by any means, which gives me more hope in my faith. Their faith guided their passion and direction in life. They didn’t listen to the world’s viewpoints, they didn’t follow the rules, and they weren’t always popular or well-known.
To be a super “faith” hero, believe in Jesus and let Him guide your life according to His plan. You are called to a greater purpose and with great power (power of Jesus) comes great responsibility!
