Family Heroes

March 12, 2019


Hebrews 11:7, 23, 31; Joshua 24:15

In Hebrews 11 God gives the names of those who, by faith, have done extraordinary things. It names heroes, great prophets and extraordinary individuals. And then, right there in the middle of this hall of fame, there are three names that would appear to be out of place at first glance. These three people only have one thing in common—they saved their families. What greater feat could a person do than save their family? Is yours saved? If so, then you are a family hero.

Key Points

Here are the 2 most important things you can accomplish in life:

  1. Be sure you are saved.
  2. Be sure your family is saved.

Connection Questions

How can you imitate their actions?

Rahab - the prostitute. While she may be known by the world as a harlot, she is known in the book of Hebrews as a hero. Her family was the only family that survived in that city.

Noah - he built an ark of safety. There were 500 candles on his birthday cake, yet he was still used by God. His family was safe on the arc! Require your children be a part of building the arc … God’s house! There are many ways for your kids to get involved in church. When you get your children involved in church, you are gathering your family into the place of safety.

The Parents of Moses - they hid the child. Jocabed, Moses’ mother was a strong and determined mother. She hid her son from danger as long as she could, and when she could not protect him any longer, she prepared his basket and trusted her child to the hands of God.

Final Thoughts

God is looking for heroes. There needs to be marks of distinction on our lives that create paths to safe places. Our children need to see there is something different about our lives—and they need to be able to follow our lead and example. If you raise your children in the way they should go, they will always know the way home, and they will know the difference between God’s ways and man’s ways.

If you want your family saved, do everything you can to get them in the house of God! Ask the Lord for family salvation. If you are struggling with sin, ask the Lord to deliver you. Your private life needs to match your public testimony. “Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household” (NASB Acts 16:31).

May your prayer be this: As for me and my house, we will praise the Lord! Fight for your family!
