The Savior We Need

The Savior We Need Sermon Illustration

Sometimes people don’t appreciate a rescuer’s efforts on their behalf. In Spider-Man (directed by Sam Raimi [Columbia Pictures, 2002]), editor J. Jonah Jameson is constantly campaigning against Spider-Man in the newspaper, even though the superhero is actually doing a lot of good in the city. Spider-Man persists in trying to do good even when the mood of the city is against him. In a much grander way, Jesus is the Savior we need even if the world doesn’t want what he has to offer.
