Each day of this devotional series, we will consider key moments in God’s glorious plan to redeem us. We will understand both the overarching story of God and the highlights of all He’s done for us in Christ.
Before I knew Christ, I loved the Rice/Lloyd Webber rock opera, “Jesus Christ Superstar.” This hip musical dazzled audiences in the early ’70s. I’m discerning enough now to recognize its weak theology, but it was the source of nearly all my biblical knowledge at the time. I have grown spiritually since then, but I still want Jesus to be my superstar.
Superstars captivate us. Whether its LeBron James, Meryl Streep or Beyoncé, a superstar grabs our attention. But only one person should capture our hearts.
A number of years ago, a guest speaker at a retreat identified Hebrews as a “key” book in the New Testament. I made it my goal to thoroughly study this fascinating epistle. I discovered that the author also wanted his audience to recognize Jesus as their superstar.
Evidently, people had gotten their eyes off of Jesus and onto other things — not bad things, but not the best things. The unknown author of Hebrews persuades his audience of the superiority of Jesus. He’s superior to any person or thing that people seek to meet the deepest needs of their hearts. I’m just like his audience. I often get so obsessed with the latest book, theology, worship style or pastor that I forget to focus on Jesus.
I should focus more on Jesus. His sacrifice saves me. His love fulfills me. His cause ignites my life’s mission.
I need to see him as my Superstar again.
According to a Pew Research Center study, the percentage of Christians in the world will not change significantly for the next thirty years (hovering around 31% of the total population). If we want to trust God to change that statistic and see revival around the world, it will be fueled by people whose eyes are fixed on Jesus and His plan to reach the world — people who truly see Jesus as their superstar
