Recently there has been a spate of advertisements for a show called Heroes. Despite not knowing what the show is about, the tagline struck me. It asks “Were you made for something extraordinary?”
I believe the answer is universally “Yes”. We each have a purpose that only we can fulfill – and our purpose has nothing to do with us. It is to serve God in whatever capacity He has called us to. And to do so with utter abandon.
Although we are constantly taught about the heroes of the Bible, we forget about the others who had minor but significant roles in the salvation story – the innkeeper, the owner of the Palm Sunday colt, the man who provided the Upper Room. May we not forget that our role but be small, but its impact huge, and may we live life extraordinarily.
