Have you ever thought of yourself as a hero?
You are just a regular person going about their regular day doing the regular things that everyone does.
Well, not everyone. Many of the things you take for granted would probably seem amazing to those who don’t have them.
None of us come from perfect places, but some people come from places so broken, so difficult, so destitute, that they simply don’t have it within them to being about the change they so desperately need.
They need someone to step in and help them make that change.
Over the past 16 years as missionaries serving in Guatemala serving the orphaned, vulnerable and disabled my wife and I have come face to face with some pretty difficult situations.
But we have also seen firsthand how someone can make a difference. I have seen it both in the lives of those God has called me to serve and in my own life as well.
With millions of hurting people the world over, at times it can seem daunting to even know where to start.I get that. But here is the thing, you don’t have to fix every problem, you don’t have to help every situation, you just have to start with one step, you just have to take that first step to be a hero.
A hero you say? “How so?” “How can I be a hero?” I can hear you asking.
Well let me tell you how you can be a hero:
-You can learn to do what is right! The first step towards acting is knowing how to act, take the time to learn what is good and right and true.
-You can defend the oppressed! Helping those who are suffering and in need is the most basic simple job of hero, to protect those who are downtrodden, mistreated and suffering.
-You can take up the cause of fatherless! Be an advocate for those who have no one to advocate for them, you can champion the weak and the helpless.
-Plead the cause of the widow! You can intercede and seek mercy for those who are in need, for those who have lost their strength, you can become a voice to the voiceless.
Do those things and you will be a hero, specifically, an Isaiah 1:17 hero.“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”
No, I didn’t just make that up, that is what God not just asks, but demands his people to do.
So just how do you do that you might ask? Not everyone can become a caped crusader or leave everything behind to serve full-time as a missionary in a foreign field. But everyone can partner with someone who can.
