A superhero is a character who has super powers and abilities. In the war against evil, a superhero fights for truth and justice.
Over the years, superheroes have appeared in comic books, on television, and in the movies. These days it seems like there is no shortage of superhero characters.
The Lord has equipped us to be superheroes for Him. He wants us to fight for truth and justice. We are to be warriors in the army of God. We don’t need to put on a cape, but rather He has provided for us the armor of God.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:11-13 (NKJV)
As we go out into an uncertain world, always remember to put on the full armor of God; for He is our protector. The belt of truth holds the armor in place and keeps us secure in Christ. The breastplate of righteousness guards our heart. Everywhere we walk we bring the promise of the gospel of peace. The shield of faith quenches all the fiery darts of the wicked. The helmet of salvation protects our minds from the lies of the enemy. The sword of the spirit represents the living word that pierces the darkness. Lastly, stay alert and pray!
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Ephesians 6:14-18 (NKJV)
