“Life is an uphill battle. But it’s our choice whether or not we make it up the mountain. We can choose to give up or keep climbing to see the view at the top. The view is almost always worth the climb.”-Alexis Wohler. God put this saying on my heart when I was going through […]
Joshua got the Israelites into the promise land and helped them knock down the walls of Jericho.
Another hero of the Bible is Joseph-the father of Jesus and the husband of Mary. He almost walked out on Mary when he found out she was pregnant with Jesus. But the angel of the Lord told him to reconsider and to take Mary as his wife. He listened to Him and helped Mary make the treacherous journey to Bethlehem.
There is also another hero named Joseph in the Bible too. He was sold into slavery by his jealous brothers. But it turns out that he was placed there in Egypt in order to help the people there through a famine. He was even appointed as a ruler over the people of Egypt after interpreting Pharaoh’s dream about the seven plentiful years and the seven years of famine. He actually saw his brothers again in Egypt when they came to ask for food. He didn’t want to forgive them at first, but he found the courage to forgive them and eventually told them who he really was. God gave him the courage to help the people he didn’t want to see ever again.
Mary is another hero in the Bible because she found favor with God and gave birth to Jesus. She was afraid to trust what the angel of the Lord was saying at first but then she gathered the courage to say to God, “let it be done to me according to your word.” Of course, any of us would be in complete shock if we were ever told by an angel of the Lord that we were to give birth to a baby that would be the savior of the world, nonetheless through immaculate conception. Mary had every right to be scared uncertain and overwhelmed. But thankfully for all of us, she summoned up the courage to go through with God’s plan.
John the Baptist is another hero because he helped prepare the way for Jesus and told people to repent because Jesus was coming. People mistook him for the Messiah, but he corrected them by telling them that he baptized them with water. But Jesus who is coming will baptize them with the Holy Spirit.
Jesus, of course, was the true hero of the Bible. He saved all of us from our sin and died for us on the cross. He loved each and every one of us enough that He was willing to die for us. If that isn’t true love, then what is considered true love? He was a hero and is a hero because He preached the good news of His Heavenly Father and taught so many people how to pray. He also performed many miracles such as turning water into wine.
