Heroes of Faith

Mommin Ain’t Easy // Jared Thurmon

This past week my wife became a mom. I have such a new appreciation of mothers everywhere. 

“Next to God, the mother’s power for good is the strongest known on earth. We may safely say that the distinctive duties of woman are more sacred, more holy, than those of man.” -Ellen White

A mother is the queen of her household. Her word is law. A wife is to be her husband’s equal. Her work in educating her children is as important as a King. The story of Jochebed shows us how important being a faithful mom is.

Have you ever had someone look at you and it left a deep impression? 

The last night of Jesus life contains the story of two of his disciples - Judas and Peter. Both would contemplate ending their life. What made the difference? Peter denied him in front of everyone, Judas pled for Jesus deliverance. But what happened in the hours following changed everything. 

Deborah - When Silence is Betrayal // Jared Thurmon

In a world where men dominated the culture, one woman stood up with boldness when no one else would. Her story may be one of the greatest stories of courage and fearlessness the world has ever known. She was a mother, a warrior and one of only a few woman prophets in history. She reminds us of those powerful words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. - “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

Rahab and the Fall of Jericho // Jared Thurmon

Jericho was a city devoted to the most extravagant idolatry and selfishness. They worshipped the demon goddess of the moon - Ashtoreth. She was the goddess of fertility, sexuality and war. But in the city there was a prostitute who as a child had heard of the plagues in Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea. Now it was her turn to exercise faith. But does God bless deception? What really caused the walls of the city to fall down? There is more going on behind the scenes in this story than we may have realized.
