Podcast S3, Ep. 7 – Ode to Fellow Heroes of the Faith

J.R. Waller, MBA

2) O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

3) But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.Psalm 16:2-3 (KJV)

We make much ado about heroes today. In fact, it is as if we live in a world where everyone wants to be recognized as a hero.

Signs abound all over that say things like “Not all superheroes wear capes,” and “Heroes work here.”

While its perfectly fine to respect and honor others, sometimes we can take things a little too far.

To that point, much of those in contemporary culture think of themselves as heroes, citing just about any activity as evidence to underwrite their heroic stature.

Again, its not wrong to look up to others, but who can Christians look to as their heroes?

According to David, it was the saints that were in the earth and the excellent that he was most delighted with. Fellow Christians were his heroes. These were heroes of the faith.

In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we’re going to learn why, ultimately, Christians can consider each other heroes in a far more meaningful and profound way then they would those who are not believers.
