This message was part of the ‘For Such a Time as This’ series, preached at Christ Church Manchester’s church in Gorton in late 2017. The full series included the following sermons:
Search for a Super Hero
The success of Superhero movies like the avengers reminds us that one of the most popular stories is of someone powerful swooping in to save everyone from disaster.
It is easy to look at the world today and see many problems, challenges, and hardships both on a personal and global scale.
The Real Problem
The bible tells us that the most dangerous threat we face isn’t war or climate change, or brexit but the wrongness inside us which the bible calls Sin.
The Super Hero
But, the bible also tells us that God has sent a “superhero” to save us, the change the heart of every person on earth so that they can be saved from the sin that would destroy them.
That hero is Jesus, and if we call out to him and accept that we need saving he will save us for eternity.
