Longing for Rescue

The movie Man of Steel, released in 2013, is a fresh imagining of the Superman story. Filled with breathtaking special effects and nonstop action, it drew crowds to movie theaters around the world. Some said that the film’s appeal was rooted in its amazing technology. Others pointed to the enduring appeal of the “Superman mythology.”

Amy Adams, the actress who plays Lois lane in the movie, has a different view of Superman’s appeal. She says it is about a basic human longing: ” Who doesn’t want to believe that there’s one person who could come and save us from ourselves?”

That’s a great question. And the answer is that someone has already come to save us from ourselves, and that someone is Jesus. Several announcements were made regarding the birth of Jesus. One of them was from the angel Gabriel to Joseph: “She[Mary] will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matt. 1:21).

Jesus came — He did so to save us from our sin and from ourselves. His name means “the Lord saves” — and our salvation was His mission. The longing for rescue that fills the human heart ultimately is met by Jesus –Bill crowder.
