Dareing to be a hero

What is a hero? Is it a strong one? One who cannot be defeated? One who has no objective other than winning? No. Strength has nothing to do with being a hero. Strength is how the world describes it, but they just don’t see the falseness in that. For strength is a sheer word. How do we describe it? There is far more depth to strength than mere muscle. A hero doesn’t have to be bold or courageous, no, a hero must be brave. Brave enough to go out and face the road ahead. Brave enough to get out there and give back to God what God has given to him/her. A hero’s path is in line with both strength, and weakness. They are brave, but at times they may fall from bravery, for bravery is a mere word also. It means both boldness, and affliction. You cannot be brave, and daring, yet not have any problem, that’s just not possible. For the brave suffer greatly for what they are. And the daring learn too that they will fall short.

A Fight to the Finish
10And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. 11So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. 12This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.
13Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet.
Ephesians 6:10-13
