Who's Your Hero? Who'd be Your Lifelong Companion?
Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. (Hebrews 13:7)
A pastor once told of how when he was in seminary, one of his professors suggested that each member of the class find one great and godly teacher in the history of the church and make him a lifelong companion. That pastor took this to heart and chose Jonathan Edwards, and since that time has soaked up all he can of Edwards - his life, ministry, teachings, writings and theology.
How about you? It's not "Who's Your Daddy," but "Who's Your Spiritual Hero?!" Who would you choose to be your lifelong companion, and why? And if you've already done so, what have you learned, and how have you been aided in your spiritual growth with the Lord?
