Christian Heroes

There are many men and women over the centuries since Christ rose from the dead that have inspired us to serve at the pinacle of our wits and abilities as God gives us strength.  Hebrews chapter 11 tells us of those Old Testament characters worthy of mention.
There are two particular favourites of mine:
  • Mary Slessor of Kalibar, since she went out from the city that I now call home.
  • CT Studd who is quoted as saying something like this, "Some wish to live within the sound of Church or Chapel Bell.   I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of Hell." and " If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him "
Some more heroes of the faith:
