Jesus, The Real Hero!

Do you ever watch a movie and wish that you knew that character? You admire someone fictional. You know, you want to be more like that. Countless action movies attract many young men looking for…something. A goal. A purpose. Something to admire.

It is my contention that we are looking for Jesus, the real hero.

Now, some of you just gagged. Seriously, the guy with the long white robe and the hippie smile? A hero!?!?

Yes, a hero. What we have been looking for a taste of the good and perfect hero? The real hero!
