Jesus our Super hero and the Supreme Star!

Our focus should be more to refer a star figuratively to an outstanding shining person like Jesus.

This is the time of the year where we all get to see brightly shining stars dazzling across the cold wintry night as a part of the seasonal decorations. And often we think on ‘WHAT’ this special physical star is all about – the heavenly sign declaring the birth of Jesus. Because none was so important that their arrival was marked with a star except for the birth of Jesus, so, it’s all about Him – who is our real Superhero, and the Supreme star, sent by God to be the savior of humankind.

So, friends, our focus should be more to refer to a star figuratively to an outstanding shining person like Jesus. That means we should give more importance to ‘WHO’ rather than ‘WHAT.’ Numbers 24:17 refers to a star coming forth from Jacob, which in the New Testament we confirm Him to be JESUS!

His name means Savior, and we find the most beautiful descriptions of this supreme personality in Isaiah 9:6 (Memorize). Each of the descriptions deals with an important area of our lives. They are like the five corner points of the star, each is special and unusual.

  1. First, He is WONDERFUL. He takes care of the dullness and darkness of life caused by sin. Through His sacrifice on the cross, Jesus Christ grants us a wonderful new life free from the penalty of sin for everyone who believes in Him. Instantly we become a new creation in Christ – a child of God who will live with Him for all eternity. (2 Corinthians 5:17- 19- Memorize).
  2. Second, He is a COUNSELOR. He takes care of the decisions of life. He likes to give us counsel and direction with regards to plans for our lives.
  3. Third, He is the MIGHTY GOD. He takes care of the demands of life. He will give you the strength to live the life He has called you to live.
  4. Fourth, He is our EVERLASTING FATHER. He takes care of the destiny of life. He will always love and care for you.
  5. Fifth, He is the PRINCE OF PEACE. He takes care of the disturbances of life. When we believe in Jesus we receive forgiveness for all our sins and have peace with God. He also provides perfect peace amid our troubles.

There are yet more amazing descriptions about our Superhero figure, Jesus in the Scriptures. The more you explore about Him, the more your life will be blessed. So never stop! And do share your blessed experiences in Jesus Christ with others.
