Modern Hero’s for God

What makes someone a hero? Are they perfect in every way, like Superman? Or, are they flawed like the rest of us? And what about the anti-hero, those who have deep flaws and yet at times display great courage and make a stand for what is right? Where do we see these people around us, and what can we learn from them? And, what about those who are famous and lots of people follow them but are not heroes at all?

He has conquered self—the strongest foe man has to meet. The highest evidence of nobility in a Christian is self-control. He who can stand unmoved amid a storm of abuse is one of God’s heroes.

He who has learned to rule his spirit will rise above the slights, the rebuffs, the annoyances to which we are daily exposed, and these will cease to cast a gloom over his spirit. 

It is God’s purpose that the kingly power of sanctified reason, controlled by divine grace, shall bear sway in the lives of human beings. He who rules his spirit is in possession of this power. 

The man or woman who preserves the balance of the mind when tempted to indulge passion, stands higher in the sight of God and heavenly angels than the most renowned general that ever led an army to battle and to victory. 

What young men and women need is Christian heroism. God’s Word declares that he that ruleth his spirit is better than he that taketh a city. To rule the spirit means to keep self under discipline…. They need to seek earnestly to bring into their lives the perfection that is seen in the life of the Saviour, so that when Christ shall come, they will be prepared to enter in through the gates into the city of God. God’s abounding love and presence in the heart will give the power of self-control and will mold and fashion the mind and character. The grace of Christ in the life will direct the aims and purposes and capabilities into channels that will give moral and spiritual power—power which the youth will not have to leave in this world, but which they can carry with them into the future life and retain through the eternal ages.

  1. Jesus was never a triune god, he never had a last name of Christ. He father was Joseph of Nazareth and his mother was Mary. If you are waiting for mans god he will never come back. I serve one God by understanding the Law of Moses the 10 Commandments starting at the last one words that descended from heaven. Do not covet…..rising from the ground into the heavens to understand what it means to love my neighbor and to Love my God. Man has you by- passing the 10 Commandments and ascending into the heavens with his god a man they named christ. A real hero is a man who tells you the truth in layman’s terms, who walked away from mans gods 14 yrs ago and ascended into the heavens whether in spirit or not, mind and body. No one in the first century and beyond had a last name. Only Western religions have a last name ie….I am pastor ——-my name is Baptist, Pentecostal, Catholic all the objects of your faith in man. Man has hundreds of names . My Father has only one name, God.
