Heroes

DEFINED:  A hero is a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.

Hebrews 11:32-34 & 3 8  How much more do I need to say? It would take too long to recount the stories of the faith of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and all the prophets. By faith these people overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what God had promised them. They shut the mouths of lions, quenched the flames of fire, and escaped death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight... They were too good for this world, wandering over deserts and mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground.

 

THE ROLE CALL OF HEROES 

  • Examples in U.S. history.
  • Hebrews 11 - look at what God noted about their life.    

  WHAT PROMPTS EXTRAORDINARY SERVICE?

  • When the cause outweighs the risk.
  • When the task is too important to leave undone. 
  • When the call cannot be ignored. 

HEROES ARE THOSE WHO 

  • DO - Matthew 14
  • GO - Exodus 3
  • OBEY - Genesis 22
  • GIVE - Mark 14

HEROES AREN'T ALWAYS RECOGNIZED
