This Hero Came in a Cradle.

Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”  Jesus looked at the Pharisees and said “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.” (Luke 19:38-40).  AMAZING!!!  What was taking place was so important that if men did not shout it at the top of their lungs then God would give the stones, inanimate stones, the ability, the privilege, to shout.  And guess what tale those stones would be telling?  Not of Hal Jordan becoming Green Lantern, but the story of Christ dying in mine, and your, place!  That is AWESOME!  Why are the stones so exalted in this regard?  Why not the trees, or the waters, or the grass?  Because these things do not the cover all the world.  Now, I want you to understand that the greatest stone of all, is Earth itself!  The whole Earth is a stone!  No other account has so much worth that the creator of the universe would cause the Earth to cry out!  The justice that Captain America carries, that originated with Christ.  The excitement we had as we read the pages of The Flash: Reborn, is nothing in comparison to the the empty tomb as our Lord had victory over death!  That sense of saving and hope we feel as we see Superman parting the clouds and calmly landing on the pavement, that belongs to Jesus the day he comes back for us.  Jesus is the first and only hero in my life and I pray he would be in every life!  So remember;  there are many heroes we love, but only one hero that loves us!
