Children’s Address

Heroes: Problem – either not real or they make mistakes.
Jesus: Real and Didn’t make any mistakes.
Paid the biggest price of all!
Luke 23:34 “Father forgive them…”


Two things nailed to the cross with Christ:

  1. A clear declaration of the identity of Christ: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS
  2. The written code that stood against us

The written code

A business term, meaning a certificate of indebtedness in the debtor’s handwriting. Paul uses it as a designation for the Mosaic law, with all its regulations, under which everyone is a debtor to God.

Who is Jesus?

God made flesh:

  1. The Word became Flesh and dwelt among us – John 1:14
  2. Phil2:6 Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
    7 but made himself nothing,
    taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
    8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself

The word tetelestai was also written on business documents or receipts in New Testament times to show indicating that a bill had been paid in full.

When the house fell asleep there was always a light
And it fell from the page to the eyes of an American boy

In a storybook land I could dream what I read
When it went to my head I’d see
I wanna be a hero
But the practical side said the question was still
“When you grow up what will you be?”
I wanna be a hero

It’s a nice-boy notion that the real world’s gonna destroy
You know
It’s a Marvel comicbook Saturday matinee fairytale, boy

Growing older you’ll find that illusions are brought
And the idol you thought you’d be was just another zero
I wanna be a hero

Heroes died when the squealers bought ‘em off
Died when the dealers got ‘em off
Welcome to the “in it for the money as an idol” show
When they ain’t as big as life
When they ditch their second wife
Where’s the boy to go?
Gotta be a hero

When the house fell asleep
From a book I was led to a Light that I never knew
I wanna be your hero
And He spoke to my heart from the moment I prayed
Here’s a pattern I made for you
I wanna be your hero
