What is a hero?
A hero is valiant, strong, brave, and courageous. They rescue and protect. They stand out and they are not the norm. They hold to their values and they genuinely care about people.
I believe a hero is someone who goes above and beyond. A hero is someone who does what you aren’t willing to do, or even CAN’T do. Most importantly, a hero is usually someone who does something extraordinary FOR other people, sometimes even putting themselves in harm’s way.
Who is your hero?
There are tons of hero’s in this world. Some imaginary and some real. Some big and some small. Some obvious and some that blend in. You may even be lying down next to a hero as you go to bed tonight. It is such a wonderful gift to have a hero.
This might be controversial, but it is the absolute truth: Ultimately, Jesus is the greatest hero who has ever and will ever live.
Jesus was fully God and fully man. He lived the perfect life that we are not capable of living. He died the death that we so clearly deserved. He forgives sin and washes us clean. His love crosses all boundaries of time, space and circumstance. Jesus is extraordinary. He is my hero.
This verse is so true to give praise to the greatest hero this world has ever seen: Revelation 5:12 “…Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” Amen.
Enjoy and be satisfied in the grace of God today. It is enough.
