Biblical Encouragements for Young Champions

This book examines the great champions of the Bible—ordinary men and women who yielded themselves to God’s purpose for their lives. Exactly what is a champion? A champion is one who has a worthy cause, a compelling mission that is bigger than oneself. A champion is different from a hero—a hero is someone who does a spontaneous heroic act, such as saving a baby from a burning building. Doing something heroic takes great courage. However, a champion is different; a champion gives his life for an enduring cause—one that becomes his life mission and often involves leading others. Of course, the cause of the champions of the Bible is the cause of the God of the Bible, the cause of our Lord Jesus.
