Heroes

When you think of Bible Heroes, or Heroes of the Faith, who comes to mind? There are lots of big names that you may have learned in Sunday School, people who accomplished great things, or overcame enormous obstacles, or won great victories, or spoke boldly to powerful people. All of these “heroes” are ordinary people, and we can learn from their example. These characters inspire, challenge, and encourage by their humanity. And they remind us that there is really one main hero in the Bible—God. When we allow Him to clothe us in his superpowers, He can use us in heroic ways.

May 13—Mothers Day

We took some time to bless our mothers during the Mothers Day service at Living Springs. Then Randle Elmore preached about Psalm 91 and promises we can stand on.
