We Want A Hero

heroDo we want a servant-leader or a hero?   On Sunday, I gave a message called “We Want a Hero.”    We focused on Israel’s demand for a monarch (king), instead of a theocracy lead by God.    Ultimately, God reavealed this truth, when he told them:

And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. – I Samuel 8:7

Does our need for a hero blind us to God’s role?

I have been thinking about this a lot this week in context of the church.  God uses strong leadership to direct his people, but those leaders can’t be the king God is designed to be.   God is our leader and hero, anyone else we place in that position  distracts us from who He is designed to be.
