Is Jesus Your Superhero?

Children ministered to us in worship this past Sunday. Faithfully leading us into His presence through song, Word, and prayer. Hebrews 11:17-40 laid the foundation for the service and Rev. Osteen’s message. Read it now. If you don’t have a Bible with you, click the Scripture reference to read online.

With children leading worship, several verses came to mind as they sang and prayed…

“From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise…”
Matthew 21:16 NIV84
… and a little child shall lead them.
Isaiah 11:6 ESV
And that is what happened: ordained praise from the lips of children leading us in worship.
Jesus said:
“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them,
for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 19:14 ESV
The theme of worship, Jesus is My Superhero, reflected the truth of this verse. Children believe in superheros and miracles and powers far beyond anything the world has to offer.
And I wonder… Do I consider Him my Superhero? Do you? Or have we lost our childlike hearts, the faith to believe in such powerful wonders?
Journeying through the book of Judges in Sunday School this week, reminded me of the importance of being passionate and diligent when it comes to my faith. 
…and there arose another generation after them 
who did not know (recognize, understand) the Lord, 
or even the work which he had done for Israel.
Judges 2:10 Amp
The sobering possibility of a generation coming behind not knowing Jesus is terrifying. It is our responsibility — yours and mine — to make sure the next generation does not forget, but knows, recognizes, and understands God to such a degree that they love, serve, and fear Him.
Pastor Bonnie told us: 
Faith is not simply believing there is a God — there is a trust… 
By faith we allow God to transform us into a vessel of love.
Are you trusting Him, by faith, to transform you into a vessel of love? for Him? for others?

Through our own passion and diligence in following Jesus and serving Him, we become a testimony to those around us for who He is and what He has done.
We also have an opportunity to be a hero of the faith, like those listed in Hebrews 11. Trust Him with childlike faith, experience Him yourself firsthand, and share your story with the next generation.
Be a hero of the faith, raise up a future hero.
Just like the beginnings of those who led us this past Sunday…
