Heroes are people we look up to and admire, perhaps because of their great feats of strength and courage. The Bible is full of godly heroes who lived lives of courage, faith, and conviction. They... More > were not always men and women of great natural ability. But God has always delighted in taking ordinary people, and using them to do extraordinary things, for Him.
These Sunday School lessons are meant to bring these Bible heroes to life, not just so we can admire what they’ve done, but also to encourage us to know that God might just be calling us to be modern heroes of faith, for Him.
We can find courage in reading how God faithfully provided for His heroes of the past. Our faith can grow, as we study time after time where God’s hand moved to protect and strengthen them. And we can be resolved that when God calls us, we can be ready to follow in the footprints of the Old and New Testament Heroes of faith.< Less
