turning the world to Christ

JumpStart 05/22

One of my favorite T.V. shows growing up was The Lone Ranger. It was always exciting to watch him and his sidekick Tonto take care of the bad guys. Whenever someone started trouble, the Lone Ranger and Tonto would be there to stop them and run them out of town.Every episode ended in victory.

Sometimes as human beings, we attempt to take up the mantle of the Lone Ranger. We want to take on every challenge we see, kill all the bad guys, and conqueror new territory all by ourselves.

Many men have a superman complex where we insist that we are tough and strong all the while hiding our innermost fears and insecurities.

Women also try to be a type of superwoman. They work 40+ hours a week, take care of their homes, children, and husbands. The burden is heavy but they feel that they must carry it because “somebody has to do it”.

God did not design us to go through this life alone.

It is an old cliché but it is true; “no man is an island”.

We all need family, friends, coaches, and pastors to help us navigate this life. But even if all those people fail us we have one that never will.

God said that He will never leave us or forsake us (Det. 31:6).

So when life is hard and the burden you carry seems too much even for the Lone Ranger, turn all your cares and worries over to Jesus.

He won’t let you ride alone.

    I guess that’s why Superheros are fictional characters. No one conquers alone in real life.
