WHO’S YOUR HERO?

JOHN WALKED THROUGH THE BACK DOOR INTO THE KITCHEN AFTER A LONG WORK DAY. HE FOUND HIS 8 YEAR OLD, MELISSA, DOING HOMEWORK AT THE KITCHEN TABLE. KISSING HER FOREHEAD, HE ASKED HER WHAT SHE WAS WORKING ON. “I AM WRITING A STORY ABOUT MY HERO FOR ENGLISH CLASS”, SHE REPLIED. DADDY ASKED HER WHO SHE WAS WRITING ABOUT.

SHE TOLD HIM, “I AM WRITING ABOUT YOU”. JOHN WAS TAKEN BACK! WOW! I AM HER HERO, HE SILENTLY GASPED! HUMBLED, HE ASKED HER WHY HE WAS HER HERO. MELISSA ANSWERED SOFTLY WITHOUT LOOKING UP, “WELL, YOU ARE NOT MY REAL HERO….I JUST COULDN’T SPELL ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER.”

SO, WHO IS YOUR REAL HERO?

MAYBE, YOU SHOULD CONSIDER WHY JESUS IS YOUR HERO! COUNT ALL THE REASONS. BORN FROM PROPHESY, THE TEACHER OF PEACE AND LOVE, GOD IN HUMAN FORM, HE DIED A HORRIBLE, TORTUROUS DEATH IN ORDER TAKE ON ALL YOUR SINS, SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE ETERNAL LIFE SHARED WITH HIM IN HEAVEN. JESUS’ NAME IS EVEN EASY TO SPELL!

WHO ARE YOU GOING TO TELL, TODAY, THAT JESUS IS YOUR HERO OF HEROES?

“FOR TO US A CHILD IS BORN, TO US A SON IS GIVEN, AND THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE ON HIS SHOULDERS. AND HE WILL BE CALLED WONDERFUL COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE.” ISAIAH 9:6 NIV
