Who was your superhero growing up? Superman who could fly? Spider man who could climb walls? These were often men who looked just like anybody else- but then were transformed into an entirely different person. With this different identity came the power or ability to do superhuman things others couldn’t do.
Do you know you have been made a superhero by Jesus? When you accept Jesus as your Savior, your old identity died and you were made brand new. With this identity change came power and ability to do superhuman things- like lay hands on the sick and see them recover and speak with new tongues and lead people to become new creatures through Jesus.
2Co 5:17 – “So that if any one is in Christ, that one is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
When you become a Christian, you don’t just join a club. You become a brand new creature- a superhero! God’s Spirit comes to live in you and give you power and authority to be a hero to the people around you.
Live today looking for opportunities to help people like a superhero. Extend your help, give a smile, pray a prayer, be friendly to the person who speaks badly about you. Keep your joy when your classmates gossip about you. You have the ability to live this life, because God Himself lives in you!
Say It: I am in Christ and am a new creature. The Holy Spirit lives in me. I look for opportunities to be a superhero to my world today in small ways and in big ways.
