Media promotes rock , movies, and sports stars as modern-day heroes. News reporters celebrate popular politicians, billionaires, and powerful businessmen. I would suggest that although there are good people everywhere, the greatest hero of all is Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer.
Do we consider Him our greatest hero? Do we teach our children to make Him their hero? Do we find pictures of Him on our walls? Do we honor, revere, love, and cherish Him? Is He the center of our affections, admiration, and adulation?
A few years ago my husband and I went out to dinner with some friends. They were a charming couple—a doctor and his beautiful wife—and the man said he loved His wife more than anything or anyone, more than God. A few years later, he had affair and their marriage was unraveling.
When God is our greatest love, everything else in our lives falls into place. We can overcome fear with love. We can find courage to meet the challenges of living. We can find peace amid sorrow.
