He’s my Hero… As young father’s, we were often thought of as hero’s to our children; and as teenager’s, our hero was (for me: John Wayne, or Jimmy Stewart); then as a young adult – it may have been our boss, our father, or pastor. As adults; our father, or an older brother. As older adults – maybe an older brother, a success ridden Warren Buffet or Bill Gates. Along the way, some may have gotten “caught-up” with certain movie stars, or a Jimmy Bakker, Lance Armstrong, or Michael Jordan. For other’s, it could have been JFK, Mother Theresa, Billy Graham, Neil Armstrong, or polygamous Warren Jeffs; or cult leaders Jimmy Jones, David Koresh, Charles Manson, or Hollywood’s Michael Moore. And finally, if one is Blessed, then he might have discovered that Jesus Christ is an acceptable Hero. For me…He is. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 – For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. CAUTION: You cannot identify a hero by his clothes; personality, or physique. Hero’s come in all shapes and sizes. Remember; a Hero is someone who is a good person. Our basic instinct, the Golden Rule, and who his follower’s are; will identify him for you.. …Blessings…cjlb…9/23/13
