When we were kids, we liked to admire the superhero characters. Boys, they like to hear stories about Superman, Spiderman or Batman, larger than life heroes who are so powerful and help many people. Girls like me, on the other hand, like to hear a story about a princess who is in danger, and then comes a handsome prince riding on a white horse to rescue her. Not only do we like to hear stories of superheroes, we want to be like them. We often want to be in their position. Yet, this is all just fantasy and fiction created by humans.

Let me tell the truth today. There is one Superhero who is truly real, created by no one’s pen or imagination. He has come to this world to save all of us. His name is JESUS. He is a true Superhero.

“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a SAVIOR, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11)

While He is truly great, he also wants to use our lives to do great things in this world. He wants us to become like Him, and we can, if we only open our hearts and accept Him as Lord and Savior. On this Christmas day, allow Jesus to be born again in your heart and turn you into a new self.
