In 550 B.C. the nation of Israel had been bullied for 7 years. God chose an unlikely man by the name of Gideon to lead a transformation. He started with the transformation of Gideon himself. First, He revolutionized Gideon’s identity when He addressed him as “Mighty Hero.” Next, He called Gideon to the heroic action of disturbing his allies and destroying his family’s idols. Finally, He led him into a seemingly unwinnable battle with an unorthodox set of weapons. Gideon fought fear, chose obedience, and lived by faith.
Ultimately, Israel experienced victory over its enemies. But in the process, something even greater happened: Gideon became a hero.
The church needs fewer celebrities and more heroes. Celebrities live for self but heroes sacrifice for others. Jesus was the ultimate hero. He forfeited His divine rights and was faithful to death on the cross. His sacrifice led to our freedom. As the body of Christ, we have been filled with the Spirit of God and invited into His mission. This year our rallying cry is “Be a Hero.”

Will you lend your sword to the fight?
GROW | Sermon Series
1 Corinthians 3:7 says, “It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow.” What does it mean to grow spiritually? How do I know if I’m growing? What’s the plan? During our 5 week GROW series, Pastor Greg will share a clear, simple, biblical growth plan for every believer.
