We all know the phrase: "Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound... It's Superman!" The idea of a super hero has captivated mankind from Hercules to Captain America. People love the idea of an invincible hero who saves lives. Unfortunately, the "Man of Steel" is fiction. However, there is a real hero, a noble self-sacrificing Savior, and His name is Jesus Christ. Our problem is not some criminal mastermind. Instead, our problem is that we have sinned against a Holy God, and His perfect law demands our death in an eternal Hell. "But, I am a good person!" you say.
By man's standards? Maybe. However, God requires perfection in thought, word, and deed. Have you ever told a lie? A single lie makes you a liar, and stealing one thing makes you a thief. You are guilty before a Holy God, and He cannot simply ignore justice. But God made a way for sinners to be forgiven without violating justice. He took on flesh in the person of Jesus Christ. He lived the sinless life we couldn’t, and then offered Himself on the cross as a sacrifice for sin. Jesus took the wrath of the Father, then rose from the dead… showing the penalty fully paid! God commands you to repent and put your faith in Jesus alone for salvation. Cry out to God, confessing and forsaking your sins.
