Eph. 6:10 “Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might.”
So, what is it that draws us to heroes? Why all the hype about superheroes? I don’t know about you but it seems like Hollywood is putting out several superhero movies a year. If you are like me you grew up on Batman and Robin, Superman, Spiderman; maybe your heroes were the Bionic Woman or Six Million Dollar Man.
Today we are so desperately looking for a hero to rescue us or save us from our troubles, pain, or to make the bad guys go away. I’m guessing none of us are going to get special powers or end up bionic like Lindsay Wagner, but all of us can become heroes of the faith. Whether you believe it or not, we can all become heroes. God makes us heroes; we can be used by God to rescue and help someone out of their hurt and pain as we reach out with compassion and care.
Be a hero to someone today – share a smile, lend a hand, give a word of encouragement, meet a need, anyone can be a hero. God uses the least likely – God used fisherman, tax collectors, prostitutes, the abandoned and insane to make a difference and reach a world for Him. Choose to follow Him, and He will equip you.
Today, find some way to reach out and make the world different and point people to Christ. If you are in the area, join us all this year at our Ladies Who Lunch events where we will look at how we can become heroes and study some of the heroes God used for His glory.
