My Hero

16 Dec

Who is your hero? What is it about them that makes them someone to look up to? Are they kind? Are they smart? Are they successful? What really makes them your hero?  Do you try to live your life like theirs because you want to be like them? Do you think that being like them would make you happier or give you a better life?

There is one hero with whom no other hero can compare.

Why can no one compare?

Because this hero was created in perfection; he has not a single flaw in the eyes of God. He came here to save mankind from themselves.

My hero is Jesus Christ.

Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But you haven’t believed in me even though you have seen me. However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them. For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will. And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them up at the last day. For it is my Father’s will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life. I will raise them up at the last day.” John 6:35-40

He came here to save the lost, to serve others, to live according to God’s will, to suffer and to die so that we could live.  I think that is something to look up to. He is truly deserving of being called a hero.

The song “Hero” by Abandon really moved me and this video made by Kristen S. makes the message even more moving.

His love was so great it’s unimaginable…
