WHO’S YOUR HERO?
We all have heroes, people we look up to, people whom we admire, individuals whose skills and talents, courage, strength of character and sheer ‘get-up-and-go’ we would love to have. For the more active ones amongst us that person might be a sporting identity, for the politically inclined it may be an outstanding leader, for those who love the limelight it may be an exceptional dancer or singer and for some it might be a great crusader for suffering people. For some it may be someone closer to home like a loving relative or exceptional teacher. Certainly we can learn a lot from these people and grow and develop as a result.
Personally I have many people I admire and look up to but, without a doubt, my greatest hero is Jesus. Here is a person, the sinless Son of Almighty God, who in his life and work was everything I could ever want to be; from His astounding love to the unbelievable courage and commitment He showed in suffering and giving His life for us. Why would we look further? How amazing would life be if we all could be a little bit more like Him!
Jesus, make me more like you, more like You today.
Jesus, make me more like you, more like You, I pray.
