Helping you understand the Word of God, free from the traditions of men. To me, Jesus is not only my Lord and Savior, he is also my hero. However, as my relationship with Jesus continues to grow and I learn more and more about what he did, is doing, and will do for me, I know that it is only Jesus Christ who fulfills the definition of a true hero. A man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
The Blood of the New Testament by D. Moody "For this is My blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many, for the remission of sins. I want to take up some passages referring to the subject My hero jesus christ essay the Precious Blood in the New Testament.
Soon after we came back from Europe to this country, I received a letter from a lady saying that she had looked forward to our coming back to this country with a great deal of interest, and that her interest remained after we had commenced our services until I came to the lecture on the blood, when she gave up all hope of our doing any good.
In closing that letter she said ; " Where did Jesus ever teach the perilous and barbarous doctrine that men were to be redeemed by the shedding of His blood?
He said to me: Moody, you are either all right and I am all wrong, or else I am right and you are all wrong. I tell you the moment a man breaks away from this doctrine of blood, religion becomes a sham, because the whole teaching of this book is of one story, and this is that Christ came into the world and died for our sins.
I want to call your attention to the nineteenth chapter of John and the thirty-fourth verse: It was the breaking of the crown of hell and the giving of the crown of Heaven.
When the Roman soldier drove out the blood, out came the water, and it touched that spear, and it was not long before Christ had that Roman government. It is a throne and a footstool now, and by and by Page 35 it will sway the earth from pole to pole.
This earth has been redeemed by the blessed blood of Christ. Peter says in his first Epistle 1: Why, the poorest thing is gold in Heaven.
The law had been broken, and the penalty of death had come upon us, and it required life to redeem us. Now, it says we shall be redeemed. I am no longer my own, I am His. He has ransomed me. A friend of mine once told me that he was going out from Dublin one day, and met a boy who had one of those English sparrows in his hand.
It was frightened, and just seemed to sit as if it pined for liberty, but the boy held it so tight that it could not get away. You will never tame him; he is wild.
He opened his hand, and at first the bird did not seem to realize it had liberty, but by and by it flew away, and as it went it chirped, as much to say, "You have redeemed me. Satan was stronger than we were.
Jesus did not come to buy us from Satan, but from the penalty of our sin. Page 36 Another thought about the blood. It makes us all one.
The blood brings us into one family, into the household of faith. I remember during the war Dr. Kirk, one of the most eloquent men I ever heard, was speaking in Boston.
At that time, you recollect, there was a good deal said about the Irish and the black man, and what an amount of talk about the war of races. He said while preaching one night: It just makes us one.
I can tell a man that has been redeemed by the blood; they speak all the same language. They have only one language, and you can tell when they speak whether they are outside the blood or sheltered by it.
If we are sheltered behind the blood, it cries for our salvation, for we see in Galatians: Again, I would like to call your attention to the twenty-sixth chapter of Matthew, twenty-eighth verse, where we find Christ speaking of His blood: Said a man to me last night after the meeting: That was the plan.
And without the blood what hope have you? Let us take God at His word: If a man makes light of that blood what hope has he? How are you going to get into the kingdom of God?The Bible is a lot of things to a lot of people, but to Christians, especially, it is a source of inspiration and a guide to daily living..
To others, the Bible is a historical document and a source of controversy. To others still, the Bible is a self-contradictory mish-mash of arcane rules and proscriptions, mostly relevant to long-dead cultures in far away places. Jesus is someone who I can always go to in my time of needs and who is always there for me.
My hero in my life where ever I am. He is and will always be my number one hero in my life. [Content warning: Politics, religion, social justice, spoilers for “The Secret of Father Brown”.
This isn’t especially original to me and I don’t claim anything more than to be explaining and rewording things I have heard from a bunch of other people. What makes a hero? According to Webster's dictionary, a "hero" is “a man of distinguished valor.” The world has many heroes today, sport figures, actors, military men, and rich and powerful men; but I want to introduce to you today, "Jesus, My Hero!".
It reads, in part, “My hero is Jesus because he helps me, makes me better. He also makes good things happen.” But a statement from Cerro Gordo Elementary School denies the family’s version of the story.
