Jesus is the good news.

So many heroes and so many still missing.
Everybody loves a winner. That's how I got hooked behind a Formula One Champion, Michael Schumacher. It was neither the brand nor the car that did it for me. It was the man who knew how to win gracefully. So is it with every sports champion who consistently wins and steals the hearts of those who long to walk free from failure and defeat.
But no one is good, all the superheroes have flaws and have gone their own way. They all have fallen and none of them is righteous. Who is left you say? Who will save the world? Are we all lost without hope? Who is the one missing in this picture?
Did you find the missing hero? Tarzan, Zoro, The Magnificent Four, and the A-Team of course. Only but a few to mention. And who is your hero? It use to be who ever saves the day, right. It still is, but I have found a real hero who in the line of duty died saving me. That's when the Phantom disappeared, when I found out, what Jesus had done for me.
Call me religious if you want, but I know my hero by name and he knows me by my name. A king disguised as a servant. A savior meek and mild yet he cast out the devils wild. Despised and rejected he suffered the cross, but he won't let you go till it is finished. The cross give power to sinners to become saints, forgiven and cleansed from dirty sins.
Look again at these heroes. Which one died and rose again? Jesus was the only one. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that who ever believes in him will never perish, but have everlasting life. That is how I know God.
People come and go, and heroes are born everyday, and they die over time like a flower they fade away. Legends live a little bit longer, but no one knows for sure.
Only Jesus stood the test of time and believers get to go where no one else are allowed. Heaven is an open door when Jesus shows you the light of day. Sinners used to invite him all the time, and he never turned away from the worst of them. Listen to him teach, when you read his word. And when you do what he says, you will have him as friend and savior for life. This my friend is the gospel story and God is no liar.
Ask him now and see what he says, when you ask him to save you today. Jesus said come to me and I will give you life and rest. Those demons that tormented your soul will now face the one who triumphed over hell and death. Yes my friend Jesus rose from the dead. He even raised Lazarus his friend from the dead. Look again at all these heroes and choose the one who knows your name. And when you pray or call his name, will he save, or will he be away? Does he even know where you stay? God knows and that is why he send Jesus to come and find you, right there where you are in darkness, trouble or when you afraid. Love will cover your shame and grace will wipe every tear. God the Father has a place for you. His kindness and generosity has made many poor rich. It is with him that you can stay. Amazing grace how sweet the sound Jesus came for you and me.
