Calling All Superheroes!

Comic strip heroes are so cool. 

Characters that live among us as ordinary people, but when needed, they are fighting on our behalf and resisting the dark forces of evil around us.  I don't think it gets much cooler than that.  They are both humble and mighty all at the same time.

Supposing they were real, can you imagine if they never realized their superhero identity?  If Superman was just Clark.  And, Wonder Woman never stepped into her title?

"Oh what a shame!" most of us would say.  All that power.  All that potential.  And, none of it used or lived out.  It would be a waste for both the character as well as all those that would have been impacted by them.

Now consider real life.

What if Billy Graham never got brave enough to speak his heart and mind?  What if Esther didn't see her royalty and her standing with the king was for 'such a time as this' and a divine opportunity to save her people?  What if David only remained a harp player and Mary just a girl that married a fellow named Joseph?

What if the Carpenter only remained a carpenter?

So....  who are you?

I don't mean what is your profession.  I mean...  Who are you?  Do you know?  And, if you know, are you acting on it?  If you don't, are you actively seeking the One who made you, calls you, and empowers you? 

One thing is for sure...there is no such thing as 'ordinary' in His Kingdom!
