Jesus: The Ultimate Role Model
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
At an early age, I started watching the televised portrayal of Jesus Christ. I saw authority in action, compassion, confidence, conviction to His truth, and humility. Jesus listened to others, provided for the poor, and healed the sick. He was not concerned about what others thought of him for he knew the hearts of men.
After experiencing sexual abuse, I wanted to avoid ever having to go through something like that again. Jesus set the standard for what I wanted my character to be like.
I realized that all of the characteristics that Jesus embodies are within me. My superpowers are compassion, faith, hope, love, peace, truth, and understanding.
All superheroes go through a unique journey. Everything prepares them for their next battle.
May you know that everything you need is within you.
